Die glänzend erzählte Lebensgeschichte der legendären ägyptischen Königin Kleopatra VII., letzter weiblicher Pharao Ägyptens, ist heute hinter Mythen, übler Nachrede und märchenhafter Schönheit verborgen. Stacy Schiff , Pulitzer-Preisträgerin, zeigt in ihrer Biografie dank intensiver Recherche und neuer Auswertung antiker Quellen nicht nur die laszive Verführerin und das intrigante Machtweib, sondern enthüllt eine außerordentlich starke Herrscherin – selbstbewusst, versiert in politischem Kalkül, diplomatisch und visionär. Detailfülle und Mut zum zugespitzten historischen Urteil, sprachliche Eleganz und provokantspritzige Porträts der mächtigen Mit- und Gegenspieler an Kleopatras Seite versetzen den Leser ins alte Reich am Nil mit seinem weltläufigen Charme und seiner machtpolitischen Unerbittlichkeit.

Cleopatra's palace shimmered with onyx and gold but was richer still in political and sexual intrigue. Though her life spanned fewer than forty years, it reshaped the contours of the ancient world. Famous long before she was notorious, Cleopatra has gone down in history for all the wrong reasons. Stacy Schiff boldly separates fact from fiction to rescue the magnetic queen whose death ushered in a new world order, a generation before the birth of Christ. Rich in detail, epic in scope, Schiff's is a luminous reconstruction of a dazzling life.

ABOUT THE BOOK We all know about Cleopatra VII, her seductive ways, her wanton affairs with two of the mightiest men of Rome and her demise by an asp bite. We picture her as Elizabeth Taylor in the 1960's eponymous flop and think of Mark Antony as Richard Burton. We know all about her. Or do we? According to biographer Stacy Schiff, we do not even know what Cleopatra looked like. We've seen some coins and sculptures purporting to be Cleopatra. We do know that she ruled in Egypt for 22 tumultuous years, trying to keep her kingdom from being absorbed by the rapacious, provincial Romans. She had a child by Julius Ceasar and three more children by Mark Antony. But who was this remarkable last Pharaoh of Egypt? MEET THE AUTHOR Paul Kraly and Paula Kalamaras are award-winning, professional screenwriters, novelists, literary agents, freelance writers & researchers. They have over 25 years experience writing just about anything for anybody. They are owned by their three cats Grimalkin, Mystery and Karma. EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK From the age of eighteen, until her death twenty-two years later at thirty-nine, Cleopatra VII Philopator was the acknowledged ruler of Egypt. For several years, she was exiled within her country by her brother Ptolemy XIII's advisers and forced to raise her own army. Cleopatra was more than up to the challenge and at age 21, smuggled herself (either in a bag or a rug, depending on which historian you read) into the palace where Julius Caesar was living and presented herself to him. This audacious act typified how Cleopatra reigned and attempted to keep her kingdom as an ally of Rome, rather than a province. When you strip away all the Roman propagandizing and vilifying of this powerful woman, you find that Cleopatra was a savvy, intelligent, highly educated ruler with a clear vision of the practical politics of her day.

LIMITED TIME PROMOTIONAL PRICE | REGULAR PAPERBACK PRICE: $16.99 In the history of the ancient world there is one woman who towers above all others in her legacy, influence, and historical significance. Even in modern times, her name is synonymous with exotic beauty, luxury and excess. But more importantly, her story is one that is intimately connected to some of the most powerful figures in history and to major historical events that have forever shaped our world. She is the last pharaoh and Queen of Egypt: Cleopatra. A timeless reputation for seduction and murder Cleopatra's legend is rich and multi-faceted. She was a woman widely known for her epic powers of seduction and for using every tool at her disposal, even murdering her own family, to get her own way. Since Cleopatra's death some 2,000 years ago, she has been depicted as everything from a victim, a romantic heroine, a competent ruler of Egypt, and a merciless killer. The fervent propaganda, myth, and fantasy surrounding Cleopatra has served to distort the real story of Cleopatra, which is often no less spectacular than any of the myths that many have been duped into believing. What do you really know about Cleopatra? Cleopatra's life may be long over, but her influence and her symbolism still looms large in our collective consciousness. Those who truly know her story have no difficulty understanding the unwavering public fascination with Cleopatra. She was a young girl who inherited one of the most powerful kingdoms in the ancient world and faced head-on all the vast power of the Roman Empire. Not to mention the fact that she seduced not one but two of Rome's greatest generals, Julius Caesar and Mark Antony, before dying tragically by her own hand. Learn the myths and the real historical facts! Cleopatra's life and times has been told and retold throughout the ages by some of history's greatest names including Plutarch, Chaucer, and Shakespeare. Most people derive their understanding of Cleopatra primarily through the lens of pop culture. But this doesn't tell us the whole story. Cleopatra was a real woman who influenced some of the most important events to ever occur in human history; events that explain some of the fundamental structure of the Western and Middle Eastern worlds.

Cleopatra - The Life of The Egyptian Queen by Jacob Abbott. Brand New Edition. The story of Cleopatra is a story of crime. It is a narrative of the course and the consequences of unlawful love. In her strange and romantic history we see this passion portrayed with the most complete and graphic fidelity in all its influences and effects; its uncontrollable impulses, its intoxicating joys, its reckless and mad career, and the dreadful remorse and ultimate despair and ruin in which it always and inevitably ends. Cleopatra was by birth an Egyptian; by ancestry and descent she was a Greek. Thus, while Alexandria and the Delta of the Nile formed the scene of the most important events and incidents of her history, it was the blood of Macedon which flowed in her veins. Her character and action are marked by the genius, the courage, the originality, and the impulsiveness pertaining to the stock from which she sprung. The events of her history, on the other hand, and the peculiar character of her adventures, her sufferings, and her sins, were determined by the circumstances with which she was surrounded, and the influences which were brought to bear upon her in the soft and voluptuous clime where the scenes of her early life were laid. Of all the beautiful women of history, none has left us such convincing proofs of her charms as Cleopatra, for the tide of Rome's destiny, and, therefore, that of the world, turned aside because of her beauty. Julius Caesar, whose legions trampled the conquered world from Canopus to the Thames, capitulated to her, and Mark Antony threw a fleet, an empire and his own honor to the winds to follow her to his destruction. Disarmed at last before the frigid Octavius, she found her peerless body measured by the cold eye of her captor only for the triumphal procession, and the friendly asp alone spared her Rome's crowning ignominy.
