Cleopatra by Clint Twist

The next in the acclaimed Notebooks series invites you to meet Egypt's last pharaoh and an icon of beauty and power.

From her royal childhood to her relationships with Caesar and Mark Antony, through Roman civil war to the mysterious events of her death and the legend that lives on today, this is the complete Cleopatra.


For history buffs, girls who like icons, and museumgoers inspired by an outing to the Egyptian Wing, here is a lively and intriguing outline of Cleopatra's remarkable story. New York Times Online
