Cleopatra VII: Mark Antony

Note: Thank you so much for your support. My previous post "Cleopatra VII: Julius Caesar" has over 500 viewers in less than a month! 

one of the most famous love stories of all time
Cleopatra had known Mark Antony since she was a teenage girl. This was during her father's reign because Mark had helped Ptolemy (her dad) to get back on his throne. She had also met him countless of times during her visit in Rome. He was known to be a handsome man but Cleo never took notice in him, maybe because of their lack of mutual interest: she liked books, learning, science, etc whereas he liked wine and women. That, or maybe it's because he wasn't powerful enough.

Well, that was about to change.
