Cleopatra Rules!: The Amazing Life of the Original Teen Queen By Vicky Alvear Shecter Cover Image
Not Available


Learn all about Cleopatra, a far more capable and powerful ruler than people have thought, in this lively and informative biography.

Most of what we've known about Cleopatra—and what crept into art, film, and literature—came from her enemies, the Romans. Ascending to the throne at young age of 17, Cleopatra proved to be a brilliant negotiator who forged alliances that kept her in power and in control of her kingdom. This book about Egypt's last and most famous pharaoh features an inviting text, many sidebars, and excellent color illustrations: maps, photos of ancient artifacts, and artworks from many historical periods.
