Cleopatra known for her charm, with it she ended

       Cleopatra was an Egyptian Queen that ruled roughly in 51 B.C. to 30 B.C. (first with her brother and then with her son). Her real name is actually Cleopatra VII, but many people simply call her just Cleopatra. She was the last in the dynasty of Ptolemies, a dynasty almost ruling for three hundred years that was created by Alexander the Great. Cleopatra was mainly known for her charm, with it she ended up having children with Julius Caesar and Mark Antony, two Roman rulers who were both died in her lifetime. She wasn’t only known for that, she was also known for her intelligence, she was able to speak nine languages and she was very clever.       Cleopatra had four children, Ptolemy XV Caesar (Julius Caesar’s only child with Cleopatra), Alexander Helios, Cleopatra Selene, and lastly Ptolemy Philadelphus. Ptolemy XV Caesar was murdered on Roman ruler Octavian’s orders when the Roman’s invaded Egypt in about 30 B.C. while her other children were sent to Octavia, Mark Antony’s real wife, but not exactly his true love. With her, they were raised, but sadly all word died out about Cleopatra Selene’s two brothers while she became Queen of Numidia, now Morocco and Algeria.        A while before all that happened, Mark Antony and Cleopatra managed to anger Octavian and that caused him to declare war on Egypt. Shortly after that, Octavian’s forces defeated Antony’s and Cleopatra’s and Cleopatra fled back to Egypt with Antony following her. Mark Antony then heard a false rumor that Cleopatra had committed suicide and attempted to kill himself, but he only succeeded in wounding himself badly. When Cleopatra heard of this, she came to him just as he died. She later sadly committed suicide herself, she was found dead on a couch with two pinpricks on her arm, and so the story developed that she willingly was bitten by an asp, a kind of poisonous snake.
