about this item

Cleopatra was much more than a Hollywood icon. With a mildly irreverent and highly entertaining voice, Vicky Shecter cleverly debunks many historical misconceptions of Cleopatra’s rule. This is history at its best and absolutely most fun-to-read.

“Shecter's solid research is evident in her account of events as well as the back matter, which includes informative notes, a time line, a glossary, bibliographies of primary and secondary sources, and source notes for the illustrations.” —Booklist

“A lively, informative, and aggressively informal portrait of Egypt's last and most famous pharaoh.” —Kirkus Reviews
