About this product
- DescriptionWhen Cleopatra took the throne of the kingdom of Egypt, the pyramids and Sphinx were already ancient wonders. As queen she faced conquest by a new, all-powerful empire. A Ptolemy, descended from a general of Alexander the Great who conquered the Nile as part of his Macedonian lands, her relationship with Mark Anthony has become one of the legendary love stories in history. Trow draws on recent archaeological finds and fresh interpretations of ancient texts to separate truth from myth and set this incomparably beautiful queen in context.
- Author BiographyM. J. Trow is an historian and writer whose books include A Brief History of Vampires. His documentary on Cleopatra was recently screened on the National Geographic Channel. Originally from Rhondda, South Wales, he lives on the Isle of Wight.
