Summary
This is a fascinating and thought-provoking analysis of the life and death of one of history's most remarkable women. For more than 2,000 years, the great pharaoh Cleopatra VII has been portrayed as a failed monarch. Various ancient sources state she tried to end her own life while her nemesis - the Roman General Octavian, later known as August, the first Roman emperor - stormed Alexandria. Now, a completely unique interpretation of history is brought to light in this myth-busting book. In her critically acclaimed TV documentary, "The Mysterious Death of Cleopatra", author Pat Brown challenged the long held myth that Cleopatra committed suicide to avoid humiliation. Using the techniques and methodology of investigative criminal profiling and crime reconstruction, Brown's remarkable findings are revealed against a historical backdrop of mystery, drama, politics, danger, and romance. The result is a thought-provoking analysis of the amazing woman Cleopatra truly was; a fascinating account of attempt to flee Egypt; and the brutal murder that ended her reign as the last Egyptian pharaoh
