Cleopatra & Marc Anthony
Antony spent a winter in Alexandria with Cleopatra (41-40 BCE), and then left.
They went through a sort of marriage ceremony in 36 BCE.

Cleopatra poisoned herself by inducing an asp to bite her
Cleopatra's children were taken to Rome.
Caligula later executed Ptolemy Caesarion, and Cleopatra's other sons simply disappear from history and are assumed to have died.
Cleopatra's daughter, Cleopatra Selene, married Juba, king of Numidia and Mauretania
Egypt and Cleopatra's Children After Cleopatra's Death
Egypt became a province of Rome, ending the rule of the Ptolemies. Cleopatra's children were taken to Rome. Caligula later executed Ptolemy Caesarion, and Cleopatra's other sons simply disappear from history and are assumed to have died. Cleopatra's daughter, Cleopatra Selene, married Juba, king of Numidia and Mauretania.
Nowadays philosopher s think that Cleopatra was an ugly woman.
She was adored by the men because of her great skills in the bed and loved by others because of her great personality and knowledge.
“ You don’t have to be beautiful to rule the world and conqer men’s hearts. Intelligence, skills and persona matter more.”
