Cleopatra Egypt's Last and Greatest Queen by Susan Blackaby

At once daring, clever, smart, rich, determined and rash, Cleopatra is one of history's most fascinating figures. Here, children will find out all about: the Ptolemy Dynasty into which she was born, its traditions and infighting; the role of women in ancient Egypt; how she ascended to and maintained her place on, the throne; her relationships with both Caesar and Mark Antony and the political repercussions of these affairs within the Roman Empire and Egypt; and, her death in Alexandria and much more, all beautifully illustrated.
