Description

Take a journey to a vanished world with the ADVENTURES IN TIME series - stories so exciting you won't believe they're all true

Born into the richest dynasty in the world, young Cleopatra has always dreamed of glory and empire. And when she defeats her brother and sister to become Pharaoh of Egypt, she is certain the gods have chosen her for greatness. But then Julius Caesar's war-fleet sails into her harbour - and suddenly her country's destiny hangs by a thread ...

Join Dominic Sandbrook as we follow the most famous queen of all from Alexandria to Rome, through doomed love affairs and epic battles, to the serpent's bite which will change the course of history.
