Description
Immortalized as lovers at the center of innumerable novels, plays, and films, Antony and Cleopatra were reviled by their contemporaries, yet history has transformed them into tragic heroes. Somewhere between their vilification by Augustus and their celebration in the later age there lies the reality of two vibrant leaders whose destinies were entwined after the assassination of Julius Caesar in 44 BC. Mark Antony's reputation for recklessness, drinking, and womanizing overshadowed his genuine talents for leadership and administration. Cleopatra was determined to reconstitute the ancient empire of the Ptolemies, and Antony could give her much of what she desired. They had three children, and may have married according to Egyptian law—a political and sexual union that led to their downfall, since their rival Octavian-Augustus was able to portray Cleopatra as the archenemy of Rome, and Antony as her bewitched consort. Patricia Southern is the author of ten books on Roman history, including Cleopatra, of which London's Sunday Telegraph proclaimed, "In the absence of Cleopatra's memoirs, Southern's commendably balanced biography will do very well."
