The legendary romance of Antony and Cleopatra is one of the greatest love stories of all time.
It was said this remarkable woman was not a beauty, but that she was irresistible; the attraction of her person, the charm of her conversation and sheer power of personality was bewitching. It was said the sound of her voice was like an instrument of many strings.
The Queen of Egypt's ability to slip from one language into another is legendary, as are the accounts of how she managed to gain the attention of first Caesar, then Antony.
The tragic love story of Cleopatra and Antony fascinates us. I wonder what these two would make of the books, plays and movies written about them?
