Cleopatra: The Original Femme Fatale
Professor Sheila Ager
Cleopatra VII, the last queen of Egypt, and her Roman lover Marc Antony committed suicide in 30 BC after they were defeated in battle by Antony’s rival Octavian, who was soon to become Augustus, the first Roman emperor. Since that time, Cleopatra’s image as the original femme fatale has undergone countless reinventions and representations. This talk explores the origins of that image and how it has affected the many different representations of Cleopatra through the ages.
