About the Edition

Fletcher draws on a wealth of overlooked detail and the latest research to reveal Cleopatra as she truly was, from her first meeting with Julius Caesar to her legendary death by snakebite. Bringing the ancient world to life, Cleopatra the Great is full of tantalizing details about the Pharaoh's infamous banquets, her massive library, her goddess outfits, beauty regimes and hairstyles.
