    The great mistress and Pharaoh of Egypt

    Cleopatra was the last pharaoh of Egypt, born to the royal family. She used her femininity to entice many important men and gain more power.

    Cleopatra was born to Ptolemy XII (Auletes). Her mother was believed to be Cleopatra V Tryphaena, the king's wife. She was feuding with her brother, Ptolemy, whose associates drove her out of Egypt in 49 BC, after inheriting the throne due to their father's death. She came back a year later, after gathering up soldiers, and sought out help from Julius Caesar to take down her brother. After four months, she finally did. She gave birth to a son, Ptolemy Caesar, soon after. She visited Mark Antony on and off to continue to expand her empire. Finally after the death of Caesar and Antony, on August 12, 30 BC, she closed herself in her chamber. Some speculate that she used a poisonous snake to end her life, but the official cause of death is unknown.
