The name Cleopatra instantly brings to mind an image of a beautiful, raven-haired woman- the Queen of the Nile. This most famous ruler of Egypt was actually the sixth ruler with that name. Known in history for her boldness, Cleopatra was just seventeen years old when she took the throne. Her youth did not stop her from becoming one of the most powerful rulers her country had ever seen. Cleopatra joined forces with two of Rome’s most powerful leaders, Julius Caesar and Marc Antony- and she fell in love with both of them. Her reign, along with her life, came to a tragic end. Bu many historians consider that last pharaoh of Egypt its best.
