Many films and television shows celebrated this legendary Egyptian Queen so you are probably already familiar with her life story. If you want a brief biography, we can remind you that Cleopatra was a confident and powerful Pharaoh of Egypt who ruled both upper and lower Egypt during the Ptolemaic Dynasty. She was the last of the Pharaohs to rule Egypt because after her death Roman Empire took over the land. The queen was a descendant of the Pharaoh Ptolemy VII, who originally was one of the generals who ruled after Alexander the Great died so Cleopatra was actually Macedonian, rather than a native Egyptian unknown to most people.
Cleopatra was most known for her romance with Julius Caesar, and for Caesarian, the son they had shared together after being born from their love . When Julius Caesar was killed in 44 B.C., Mark Antony became her next lover and as a result of this romance, Cleopatra gave birth to more children…this time to twins, Alexander and Cleopatra, and then later, Ptolemy. Legend reveals the fate of Cleopatra: after Mark Antony died, she committed suicide by ordering her handmaidens to bring a poisonous snake to her and allowing herself to be bitten. It’s no surprise that her life have been the basis for so many movies because she brings a lot of intrigue. So having this legend in mind, you can become Cleopatra by wearing one of her beautiful Egyptian dresses to your next Halloween party!
