It is impossible not to remember the Egyptian empress. Many men were ready to take their lives in order to spend the night with Cleopatra. Everyone hoped to impress the queen in order to survive. But the rule was immutable - after the night's pleasures the lovers were executed.

The queen herself was Julius Caesar's mistress. The emperor was crazy about Cleopatra and wanted to help her take the Egyptian throne. However, he was so consumed by feelings for this beauty and someone else's war that he did not notice the conspiracy being prepared against him. Caesar was killed, and Cleopatra immediately began an affair with his friend and successor Mark Antony.
