They never had these when I was at school. I might have been more attentive to history if they did.

This is Pharaoh-licious – a crash course on Cleopatra, with apologies to Fergie from Black Eyed Peas and ‘Fergielicious.’

the first Empress of Rome was almost a woman … called Cleopatra

Cleopatra, Julius Caesar, EgyptSome believed Caesar was about to instal himself as King of Rome and make Cleopatra his queen when he died in a pool of blood in the Forum.

So she married his successor, Marc Antony. Brash, irresistible and fatally unreliable, his hold on power soon slips away.

As the tide turns against her, she plots a last, spectacular manoeuvre to save her children, her empire, and her place among the gods.



“This is the riveting story of Egypt’s last and greatest queen … creating a vivid portrait of an unforgettable woman who thrived and triumphed in a world ruled by men.” – Publishers Weekly
