Cleopatra VII Thea Philopater
Cleopatra is tall, supple woman of pure Macadonian descent, olive
skinned and dark eyed. She walks with a purposeful stride, expecting
obstacles (including people) to be removed from her path. Her head is
held high, and seldom do her darkly kholed eyes ever lower to the ground.

Factually the ruler of Egypt, and theoretically the daughter of Re the sun

Cleopatra's main ambition was to gain and maintain power.
She and her older brother ascended the throne in 51 as married
co-rulers. She quickly became disatisfied with sharing her reign,
and the resulting civil war caused havoc for the next two decades
not only in Egypt but also in Rome.
It was largely her relationship (that of mistress) with Caesar, that
led to his downfall in Rome, and her betrayal of Mark Antony during
the battle of Actium resulted in his committing suicide. After failing
to woo Octavian as she had the two previous Romans, she commited suicide
rather than being displayed as a slave in cities she had once ruled.
