Cleopatra, Queen of Egypt, was the most powerful woman of the ancient Mediterranean, and the only person standing between Rome and its dominion over the world. She was wife to Julius Caesar, and bore his only son. After his death she took Mark Antony, Caesar's greatest general, as lover and consort - and as her partner in a vast political enterprise. Together they strove to unite Egypt and Rome under one throne.
In Throne of Isis, Judith Tarr shows us an extraordinary woman wielding the power to which she was born. Here is the Cleopatra who took the throne of Egypt and held it despite Rome for nearly thirty years. This is the woman who spoke twelve languages, studied philosophy and arts, and could debate with the greatest scholars and orators of the age. Here is the woman who fell in love with a man she meant to use. And here is historical fiction at its best.
