Queen of Egypt: 69~30 BC

"Her own beauty, so we are told, was not of that incomparable type that immediately captivates the beholder. But the charm of her presence was irresistible and there was an attraction in her person and in her conversation that, along with a peculiar force of character in her every word and action, laid all who associated with her under her spell."

Plutarch, Roman Poet & Historian

  • The library in Alexandria held the largest collection during her reign.

  • She was the only pharaoh who did not have a court appointed translator. She spoke a dozen languages fluently. 

  • She personally led several dozen Egyptian warships into the fray alongside Antony’s fleet, against Octavian’s navy.
