Part of the documentary series looking at the history and culture of the ancient Egyptians. This volume looks at the misunderstood reign of Queen Cleopatra, presented by history as a duplicitous and promiscuous woman, but revealed in this documentary as a devoted mother and committed lover to both Caesar and Marc Anthony. Dramatic reconstructions illustrate the downfall of her reign as the Roman civil war between Octavian and Anthony closed further in.
