Ancient History Quote of the Day: "I do not wish to be unfair to the 'graecula'. She is clever beyond words, no denying it… She seemed intent upon challenging my own undeserved reputation for caustic humour" (Cicero, 'Letters to Atticus' 15.15) #AHQOTD #Cleopatra #OTD
This is the great Roman statesman's assessment of #Cleopatra, Pharaoh of Egypt, when Cicero met her in Rome. Cleopatra died on this day, 12 August, in 30 BC. A formidable character driven by her ambition to secure Egypt.
Cleopatra was the daughter of Ptolemy XII Auletes (the ‘Flute-player’). He became pharaoh of Egypt in 80 BC. His daughter, Berenice, was born in 76 BC, and Cleopatra in 70/69 BC. His sons, Ptolemy XIII and Ptolemy XIV, were born in 61 BC and 59 BC.
