Description: Cleopatra VII (69-30 BCE), the last ruler of Ptolemaic Egypt, was a key powerbroker during a period of political change with enduring repercussions for the western world. Ever since, Cleopatra has been deliberately memorialized as a dangerous woman, as a manipulative deployer of “feminine wiles” whose perverse understanding of power doomed her regime to failure and death.
