Course Description

Lyndell O’Hara, PhD, history professor Nyack College

The story of Cleopatra VII, the Ptolemaic Queen of Egypt in the first century B.C., has been

portrayed in novels, plays and Hollywood films (Elizabeth Taylor springs to mind!). Yet the

political genius and astute rule of this ancient queen is often overlooked. After she married, and

then murdered, two of her brothers to attain sole power in the land, she cultivated relationships

with two of the most influential Romans of the time, Julius Caesar and Mark Antony.  Known in

her time for her wit and intelligence, Cleopatra was the last of the Egyptian pharaohs and

certainly, one of the greatest. 3 SESSIONS
