Described as a great queen, a beautiful lover, and a political schemer, Cleopatra is one of the greatest icons in history. However, with almost no remaining evidence of her existence, details of Cleopatra’s life have remained a mystery – until now. In one of the world’s most exciting finds, archaeologists believe they have discovered the skeleton of Cleopatra’s sister who was murdered by Cleopatra and Mark Antony. Journeying from Egypt to Turkey, Cleopatra: Portrait of a Killer uncovers the story of a ruthless queen who would kill her own siblings for power.
Cleopatra was renowned for her beauty and infamous for her love affairs with Julius Caesar and Mark Anthony. Contemporary forensic investigations now reveal that the power-hungry queen would also stop at nothing, including murder – to ensure her continuing reign over Egypt.
