She was the last queen of Egypt and the most powerful woman in history. Her name was Cleopatra ii. Her story is one of passion, power, and a woman who understood how to use both to her advantage — even if it meant manipulating history’s greatest leaders.
Who is Cleopatra
Cleopatra’s ii life and rule (the good, the bad, and the ugly)
Cleopatra was born in 69 BC and died in 30 BC. She was the last Ptolemaic ruler of Egypt. Her father was Ptolemy XII and her mother was Cleopatra V. Her father died in 51 BC, leaving Cleopatra and her brother Ptolemy XIII as rulers. When her father passed away, Ptolemy XIII (she was once his lover) married his sister Cleopatra.
Petra (Latin for “rock”) is Egyptian for ‘Queen’ and Cleopatra was a very Egyptian woman. She was an avid art and cultural lover. She was a voracious drinker, had sadism for torturing people (she was once whispered to have murdered her own brother after he defied her), and her men became so frustrated by her menial job as a governess that they began to resent her.
Despite the insults of her palace guards and cruel reputation, she became Egypt’s most famous ruler. After marrying King Ptolemy XIV, she became his lover and eventually his queen.
So, what happened to her? Remember the people of Egypt loved Ptolemy XIV dearly. He even named his son after him (though he did have sons by other women, including Caressing her namesake). When his wife died without an heir, after he shared his last meal with his new queen and his family, he walked breathlessly to her side and gave her his own crown. Cleopatra ii was now Egypt’s last queen. At the time, she was also the most wanted woman in the world.
With her newfound power, she stopped all contact with her former lover, and tried to stay out of the public eye; however, her industry and access to resources made her untouchable — at least for a while.
And when it was time to return the crown she lost to Ptolemy XIV, Cleopatra marched back into his palace and began planning her own empire.
Sometime later, she would attend a party and run into her long-lost twin, brother, and lover.
Who is Cleopatra married to
An overview of her relationships with Julius Caesar, Marc Antony, and Octavian
Cleopatra ii was born in 69 BCE into the Egyptian Ptolemaic dynasty. Her father was Ptolemy XII Auletes, and when he died in 51 BCE, her older brother became king. Cleopatra ii was married twice, first to her younger brother and then to her father’s younger brother. One thing led to another, and she eloped with the younger Auletes, leading to his downfall.
His 22-year-old wife, however, survived the heat. She protected her culture and was a splitter, eventually becoming the leader of a new age for women.
Her name changed in times, though. It was changed from Cleopatra Nefertiti (nickname: The Golden Beckerman) to Cleopatra VII of Egypt (nickname: The Golden Queen). Back then, women could not vote or run for elected office. This new power vacuum caused Cleopatra to become a power behind the throne, always looking to curry favor with her male counterparts.
Before long, almost all of Egypt was under her rule. Though she ruled Egypt for just 26 years, her rule spanned more than 1,300 years. To know about all of this, you’ll need to watch the documentary “The Last Queen of Egypt,” which debuts this weekend on the History Channel. Blame Nickolai Konrad, the actor who slides onto a Lost Boy-style backseat in the trailer (and appropriately named “The Lost One”) to soar through Times Square.
The episode also features Max Gibbons (Clash of the Titans) playing Dr. George Heydinger, an East German scientist working on a project to map the Sphinx. Though his final appearance may be one for the books, we do know there will be some mythology and CGI left in this week’s episode. As the episode’s synopsis explains, “The mission is to understand exactly how such an intimidating rock formation the world has only ever seen three times before, traveled through time, and upheaval-ridden the last time it was in the spotlight.”
The intrigue isn’t just limited to the male scientists working on the project.

Her name was Jeanette, and she lived from 33–21 B.C. In 33 B.C. she joined Alexander the Great’s court and reportedly outsmarted him by memorizing and reciting his poems.
She became the most beautiful woman in all of Egypt, but her fame soon soured with Alexander’s death. After becoming Queen of Alexandria by marriage, her beauty attracted even more enemies. The plots to murder her used the cunning tactics of famed courtesan Calpurnia. Not believing in her beauty, she created a mirror to enhance her minimalistic image.
Cleopatra chose power and wealth over her life. She spent her time in Alexandria painting portraits of famous Egyptian and Greek women.
According to legend, she was declared a citizen of Egypt in 36 A.D. when her name change became official. She lived in opulence and squandered her two subsequent attempts to reform the Egyptian tax system.

Conclusion: A look at the life of one of history’s greatest — and most cunning — women.
Cleopatra ii was born in Alexandria, Egypt, and was the last active Pharaoh of Ancient Egypt. Her name is derived from the Greek name Kleopatra, meaning “glory of her father.” Cleopatra was the daughter of Ptolemy XII, the seventh Pharaoh of the Ptolemaic dynasty, and Cleopatra V of Egypt. When she was young, she and several of her friends visited Rome and saw various colosseums. Slipping away one night, they sneaked into the Colosseum abandoned by the soldiers, climbed to the roof, and watched gladiators fight. She fell in love with the spectacle and pathos. At the age of 16, she wrote a letter to her college, asking to study acting.
At this point, she had also left her mother and stepfather, and was known by the name of the Egyptian Queen Nefertiti. Despite her months of uncertainty, she was admitted to Rome University, and studied under Italian playwright, Luigi Antonio di Benedetto. She also went back to Egypt every year to study Greek with Ptolemy XII and his two sons Cleopatra and Ptolemy XIII, in an attempt to win his favor.
Quickly, people began referring to Ptolemy as the Cleopatra of Egypt. She wanted him for himself. But he was too busy mourning the loss of his wife, his son, and his entire court to allow a foreign beauty and young graduate to compete for his affections.
After a year of studying in Italy, she returned to Egypt convinced that she had found the love of her life. She dated Spartan Alexander the Great’s manhood apprentice, Menophilus (Men-eater), who also admired the Egyptian beauty, offering her a scholarship to study at Athens. They lived together, and Cleopatra was paid by Alexander to spy on him.
What she found back then shocked her. It wasn’t love at first sight. The young Greeks she met couldn’t speak Egyptian as she did, and Greek women were just silly and weak compared to the Egyptian women who lived off luxury and sensuality like a goddess. She could hardly recognize her own country’s women.
