Product Description
This is a 18 slide, highly animated, power point presentation on Ancient Civilizations - Cleopatra VII. Each of the slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.

Cleopatra's family ruled Egypt for more than 100 years before she was born around 69 B.C. As queen of ancient Egypt, Cleopatra is one of the most famous female rulers in history. The stories and myths surrounding Cleopatra and her life have captivated historians, storytellers, and the general public.

Her affair with Marc Antony and its end became the inspiration for William Shakespeare’s play Antony and Cleopatra (1607). Cleopatra's tragic life inspired a number of books, and movies. More recently, seductive versions of her have been played by actresses such as Theda Bara (1917), Claudette Colbert (1934) and Elizabeth Taylor (1963).

Her story resonates because of what she represented in such a male-dominated society. In an era when Egypt was broiled by internal and external battles, Cleopatra held the country together and proved to be as powerful a leader as any of her male counterparts.

The romance between Antony and Cleopatra might have changed the world. If Antony had succeeded in winning sole control of Rome with Cleopatra as his queen, he could have changed the course of the Roman Empire, making the world we live in today a different place. Their mutual suicide in 30 BC, 11 years after it started, nullified what could have been.

Family Pedigree
Famine & Turmoil in Egypt
Julius Caesar
Life with Caesar
Marc Antony
Falling in Love
Antony’s Power Struggles
Cleopatra’s Agenda
Antony & Octavian
Defeat at Actium
