  • Introduction
    • Cleopatra was an Egyptian pharaoh and she was great at it. But do you know that she was more then a pharaoh? I thought she was just a pharaoh too, until I did a little bit of research. Now I’m going to share with you what I found about Cleopatra.
  • Cleopatra
    • She was said to have not been anything close to beautiful.
      • Even though she wasn’t beautiful, she was still a very seductive women.
    • She could also sing and she was very smart.
      • She could speak 9 different languages
      • She was the first Ptolemy pharaoh who could actually speak Egyptian
  • The Truth about Cleopatra
    • Cleopatra was the last Egyptian queen of her time.
    • Cleopatra lived from 69-30 B.C.E. She took the throne at age 18.
    • Even though Cleopatra was an Egyptian queen, her family was Macedonian Greek.
    • During her reign, the Roman Empire threatened Egypt and won.
    • With the help of Julius Ceaser and Mark Anthony, they kept Egypt independent for 20 years
  • Life as a Pharaoh
    • She ruled Egypt like no other ruler before her.
    • Her family ruled Egyptian in a succession
    • She was said to have had a relationship with Julius Ceaser and Mark Anthony.
  • Julius Ceaser
    • Cleopatra met Julius Ceaser when she rolled herself up in a Persian carpet and was given to him.
    • Julius fell in love with Cleopatra and they had a child 9 months later.
      • They named their child Caesarion which means little ceaser.
    • Cleopatra wanted Caesarion to be to next ruler so she killed anyone who stood in her way.
    • Ceaser was then assassinated on 15 March 44 BC.
  • Mark Anthony
    • After the death of Ceaser, Mark Anthony fell in love with Cleopatra.
    • Cleopatra was the mother of his twins.
    • But Mark had to return to Rome to marry the daughter of Octavius
    • He did this so he could gain power in Rome.
  • Her Death
    • Her reign for Egypt soon ended when she committed suicide when she lost the battle the Battle of Actium to Ceasers heir.
    • It was said, Cleopatra died because she poisoned herself or she was bitten by an asp (snake).
    • Many artists portrait that she let the asp bite her, while others say she made the asp angry enough to bite her.
    • After her death their was no more pharaohs never to rule Egypt again.
  • Conclusion
    • Through this report, I have learned much about the pharaoh Cleopatra. I never even knew she existed. All I knew was her name. Now I know lots about her. I hope you now know more about Cleopatra now then I did before.
