About this book
From the Pulitzer Prize winning biographer, this brings to life the most interesting woman in the history of the world: Cleopatra, the last queen of England. Rich in detail and epic in scope. '...new life is breathed into an indisputably authentic icon' "Sunday Times"
Cleopatra's palace shimmered with onyx and gold but was richer still in political and sexual intrigue. Though her life spanned fewer than forty years, it reshaped the contours of the ancient world. Famous long before she was notorious, Cleopatra has gone down in history for all the wrong reasons. This title presents a reconstruction of her life.
