Charming, intelligent, and the ruler of Egypt at the age of eighteen these qualities and more have contributed to Cleopatra's reign as a fascinating historical figure. Often caught between the wishes of her people and her need to keep Rome as an ally, she struggled to keep Egypt powerful and independent. Author Richard Worth combs the pages of history to offer insight into Cleopatra's life. From the civil war with her brother Ptolemy XIV and her romances with two of Rome's strongest leaders to the disastrous Battle of Actium and Cleopatra's last, desperate decision as queen, (Cleopatra: Queen of Ancient Egypt) reveals the saga of this great ruler
