Celebrated as queen, politician, and lover, Cleopatra remains an object of fascination more than 2,000 years after her death. In this beautifully illustrated new study, Sally-Ann Ashton deconstructs the image of Cleopatra to uncover the complex historical figure behind the myth.Incorporating Ashton's findings from her own recent survey of a temple of Cleopatra in Egypt, this book is the first to consider Cleopatra from a wholly Egyptian perspective. Drawing on literary, archaeological, and art historical evidence, Ashton paints an intimate and compelling portrait of the most famous Queen of Egypt.ContentsList of Illustrations.Author's Foreword.Aknowledgements.1 Cleopatra - Black and beautiful?.2 Sources.3 King?s daughter, King's sister, Great royal wife.4 Ruler and regent, pharaoh.5 Cleopatra's capital and court.6 Cleopatra as a Goddess.7 Cleopatra, Mark Antony and the East.8 Death of a queen rebirth of a goddess.9 The legacy of Cleopatra.Bibliography.Index
