Cleopatra

Lecture no. 24 from the course: Famous Greeks

Cleopatra

Taught by Professor J. Rufus Fears | 31 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online History Courses

The last and most serious challenge of Greece to Rome comes from Cleopatra (69–30 B.C.). Charming in turn with Julius Caesar and Marc Antony, she nearly defeats Octavian. This lecture goes behind Roman propaganda to reveal her as one of the supreme figures of ancient history, a stateswoman whose vision of a Hellenic eastern empire foreshadows Byzantium.
