  1. Older Cleopatra VII

    Older Cleopatra VII

    Cleopatra VII wearing unique triple uraeus and probably holding an ankh in each hand. Like the small statue, the pose is meant to evoke Isis. Note that the body has matured a bit over the younger version.
  2. Young Cleopatra VII

    Young Cleopatra VII

    Cleopatra VII uniquely identified by triple uraeus. Holding horn of plenty in left hand, linking her to Arsinoe II. Right hand would have typically been holding ankh.

    Ancient Egypt - How would have Cleopatra reacted

    I'm a huge a fan of the ancient Egyptian and Greek history and civilization. My question and point of this discussion is pretty straight foward. If Cleopatra was alive today how do you think she would have reacted to the fact that she is such a huge icon and an important figure in todays...

    Did Cleopatra try to seduce Octavian??

    With Marc Antony dead and Octavian beating down the walls do you think that Cleopatra tried to seduce Octavian as a desperate last gamble to stay alive?? It would certainly fit with her personality and she had nothing to loose by trying. I believe in "Rome" they portray her as trying to but...

    Make Egypt Great Again: Waking up as Cleopatra VII Philopator

    Make Egypt Great Again Chapter 1: She of the Sedge and the Bee It’s hot, horribly, awfully hot. It’s not supposed to be this horrible, but it is. The bed I’m on seems to be moving, a bit like a ship in the water, this isn’t normal. Not normal at all. I yawn...

    Mark Antony defeats Octavian and Cleopatra becomes co-ruler of the Roman World

    Antony's love for Cleopatra seems to me incontestable, only this explains one of his major mistakes: To divorce of Octavia, the younger, Octavian's sister. Assuming he won Augusto, and really was willing to share power with Cleopatra, what kind of changes occur in the Roman world and beyond?

    Cleopatra - In the eyes of other queens

    I've always thought, and maybe because for some reason, that I'm not really a big fan of Cleopatra. I know she was supposedly this beautiful and intriguing queen. But I like to replace her rumored beauty with political cleverness. Because obviously, in the times of Ptolemaic Egypt, it was not...

    Just Finished the Stacey Shiff Book on Cleopatra

    Just wondering what others who have read it think about it. It kind of reminded be of reading Guns, Germs and Steel- not really a scholarly work per se because the author makes no attempt to source statements in a professional manner. Its more along the lines of pouring out one's thoughts and...

    No Cleopatra for Caesar

    We're all aware of the story of Julius Caesar, Mark Anthony and Cleopatra. How do you think history would have developed if prior to Julias Caesar arriving in Egypt, Cleopatra was killed by her brother? Removing Cleopatra from the equation would have huge significance surely?

    Cleopatra - Romantic Heroine or Royal Disaster

    What sort of leader and Pharaoh was Cleopatra. She comes across as very different characters depending on the historians but how was she as a leader? She never built up her nations defenses despite having access to humongous resources and a fairly large population. During the entire time that...

    The Children of Cleopatra

    Cleopatra VII, surnamed Thea Philopator, ruled Ptolemaic Egypt from 51 to 30 BCE, though she briefly shared the throne with two younger brothers, both named Ptolemy, early in her reign. The story of Cleopatra's life is fairly well-known. Her position was solidified by Julius Caesar, who became...

    The love life of Cleopatra Philopator

    Cleopatra VII Thea Philopator, the last member of the Ptolemaic Dynasty to rule ancient Egypt, is one of history's great seductresses. Or at least, that's how the story goes. Her irresistable charm, feminine wiles, and maddening beauty have been the stuff of Western legend for two-thousand...

    Rome and fear of Cleopatra

    W.W.Tarn had many flaws,but he was still a mighty fine scholar.I always enjoyed reading his works.One of my favourite quotes of his is what prompts me to open this thread. What do you think of this?Is there some truth to it,or not?I am not interested all that much in either Octavian...
