Just at that time Julio César became the lover of Cleopatra and support 100% his cause.
“After the first contact in his room, Cayo Julio César gathered all the brothers of Cleopatra and the same princess to end the problem of Egypt, which even being a separate kingdom, Rome had been designated by Ptolemy XII as tutorLegal of the kingdom. In this way, the Roman general appointed Ptolemy XIII as king of the island of Crete. The problem was that after that distribution, none of the brothers was satisfied.(Romero Fernando, May 14, 2018) ". Ptolemy feeling threatened by such acts decided to get up in arms against Rome;Samples that Rome was frivolously attacked Egypt Ptolemy in threat signal killed Pompey what he did not take into account is that Julio César would not like this act, which caused that with the fury of this he ends up winning the war;Julio César already hypnotized by Cleopatra’s charms helped her to completely seize Egypt with whom he initiated a relationship. Thus, the Egyptian strengthened on the throne and her brother became hostage of the couple, but he did not give up and continued fighting unleashing a fratricidal war that would end her defeat at the hands of César’s troops and her death bydrowning in the Nile, on January 13, 47 to.C.

“How Julio César and Cleopatra met: It is not known exactly how the first contact between the two dignitaries occurred. According to the history of Rome (and some of César’s writings) it seems that Cleopatra would meet him around the year 48 to.C. moment in which the Roman General had ordered to gather Cleopatra and his brother Ptolemy to end hostilities (Romero, Fernando, May 14, 2018) ”.
The truth is that of her second husband and brother Ptolemy XIV there is not much of which to talk aboutgrant power;I immediately fled from Rome for the death of Julio César, he said goodbye to kill him poisoning since he believed that he would be more of the powers of those who were due but as he could not have all the power as a successor he put his son how Ptolemy XV.
About Antonio, the Roman general, Julio César’s friend, was The most seductive intentions are presented in a ship with purple candles, silver oars and she dressed in the best way, that meeting lasted four days of which Marco was expected fell in love with Cleopatra but not only hers Cleopatra also fell in love with him, since that happened, he decided to stay with Cleopatra in Egypt, however the issues in Rome did not allow him to stay longer, shortly after Marco Antonio it was, Cleopatra gives birth to two Twins but Marco no longer returns until after four years; In the course of those four years Marco marries Octavia brother of Octavio Augusto; To continue, on the return of Marco to Egypt he now marries Cleopatra but without repudiating Octavia what he means that he is still married to her after the time they had another son, they had a life full of luxuries and waste then enjoying If his love, and right that is when Marco Antonio repudiates Octavia, but this would not stay that way since the brother was not very satisfied with the decision that he took, so he put against the entire Senate and thus began a Even more war but this time Cleopatra was not the winner but Octavio won the winner thanks to the withdrawal of Cleopatra ships, followed by Marco Antonio, who left his soldiers on the battlefield to follow her.
“Plutarch says that Marco Antonio“ was not in possession of its faculties, it seemed to be under the effects of a drug or witchcraft. I was always thinking about her, instead of thinking about beating her enemies "(Mimi, October 19, 2018)".
Marco Antonio committed suicide since they made him believe that Cleopatra was dead so he did not resist such surprise that he dropped on his own sword causing instant death. After the death of Marco Antonio, Cleopatra decides to die. The wounds that was made in the chest, crying before Marco Antonio’s body, had been infected causing fever and refused or ingesting food. Then, from the funeral of Marco Antonio, Octavio wants to force Cleopatra time after he is able to parade next to him as a sign of humiliation for the separate defeat that would be pleasant since the Roman people did not want it;Cleopatra, she wants to try the same technique that she uses with Julio César and Marco Antonio to seduce them only that Octavio was just a cold man
"The legend tells that he did not like his nose, making the phrase" if Cleopatra’s nose had been shorter, the history of the world would have changed "(Mimi, October 19, 2018)".So Cleopatra, refusing to the humiliation of being exhibited by the streets of Rome, and seeing his future as a slave, chooses the only possible exit. He made dress with his best galas and let himself bite for a rough. Before death he wrote a letter to Octavio in which he communicated his desire to be buried with Marco Antonio, and so he made.
