Antony and Cleopatra are arguably the most famous lovers in history. Marcus Antonius of Rome stood at the pinnacle of power, fighting to be the most powerful man in the known world; and Cleopatra VII Philopator was the queen of one ancient civilization, Egypt, and heir to the unmatched cultural achievements of another, Greece. Their love affair, their war together, their defeat and, finally, their suicides have been told and retold for centuries.
