Pharoah Cleopatra VII

PharoahCleopatra VII

Cleopatra VII Thea Philopator was born around 69 B.C, and is known as the last active Pharoah in Ptomelaic Egypt. She ruled as Pharaoh for nearly 30 years with some help along the way of her son and brothers. Most of her life is shrouded in mystery and rumors, because not a lot about her life was actually recorded. A lot of what we know now is due to movies and plays, such as Shakespeare's "Antony and Cleopatra".
