Cleopatra: The Life of an Egyptian Queen by Anita Ganeri
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Born into the bitter sweet power struggle for the Egyptian throne, Cleopatra appeals to the Roman general Julius Ceasar, who crushes her enemies. But after his brutal murder in Rome, Cleopatra's affections switch to the brave Mark Anthony. Their affair causes political turmoil in the Roman Empire, and sets he stage for war. The speech bubbles and strip cartoon-style illustrations of the graphic novel create a dynamic format that encourages readers to engage with the characters and get involved in the story. Opening pages provide historical context about Ancient Egypt and the struggle for power in the Mediterranean region. Closing pages explain what became of Cleopatra's Egypt under Roman control and Cleopatra's legacy. This work includes a glossary, index and recommended further reading. It fits into the guidelines for Key Stage 2 History and helps achieve the goals of the Scottish Standard Curriculum 5-14.
