Marc Antony

Parent Category: Ancient Rome
Marc Antony was the last husband of Cleopatra and one of the members of the second triumvirate after the death of Caesar. He started a civil war with Brutus and Cassius (the main conspirators who planned Caesar's assassination) for revenge, and won. He eventually went to war with Octavius, Caesar's nephew, who was another triumvirate, and committed suicide after Octavius's armies invaded the capitol of Egypt, Alexandria. Questions should include things relating to his death, his family, and his military successes and failures.
I think he was in the begining, because he was Caesars friend and was not part of the homicide. Antony was trying to betray brutus and Cassius, by talking about Caesar will on how Casaer would give money to Roman citizens. he did this because he liked Casaer. then he got alittle to carried away...
Yes. Marc Antony was an educated Roman and spoke in Greek as all educated men (and women) did. However, in Shakespeare's play Julius Caesar, Casca reports that during the Lupercal festival, Cicero (not Antony) gave a lengthy speech in Greek. "For my part," says Casca, "it was Greek to me".
Marc Antony and Cleopatra were political allies. Cleopatra seduced the vulnerable Antony in order to gain political favor. Romantics have built up their relationship into a love affair, but in reality it was hardly that. When the rift between Octavian and Antony deteriorated into war, Cleopatra was...
Marc Antony strongly supported Caesar, and went to great lengths to convince the people of Rome that Caesar was not trying to become a king. Marc Antony was one of the only people that continued to stand by Caesar's side and support him, even after his affair with Cleopatra. (Another believer in...
Octavius Caesar, Julius Caesar's adopted son, defeated Marc Anthony. He later became the first emperor of Rome, Emperor Augustus.
Marc Antony had no sisters, but he had two brothers.
I'm pretty sure that would be Cleopatra. Odd, that name is in the category listing...
The Antonii were a plebeian family, so therefore Marc Antony was a plebeian. But don't be misled by the connotation. By the time of the late republic, the plebs were quite wealthy and a force in Roman politics.
he suicided.
Brutus made the argument. "our course will seem too bloody caisus cassius..........and for Marc Antony think not of him, for he can do no more that caesars arm when caesars head is off. u r welcome
Yes, many times. His fourth wife was Fulvia, fifth was Octavia, and that makes Cleopatra his sixth.
No his ex-wife did, but it only led to disaster. Marc Antony originally ruled Rome as Caesar's Master of the Horse while Caesar was in the East going after Pompey. He had a problem with unrest and came down hard on the rioters, incurring the anger of Caesar. When things were patched up between the...
Julius Caesar was murdered on the Ides of March. Marc Antony killed himself after the battle of Actium.
Yes. He tried it with trained lions, but lions are cats and cats, being cats, would not cooperate very well. This was one of the antics that caused Caesar to become so angry with him.
Marc Antony has been unfairly labeled as one of history's greatest bunglers, but in reality he was a very capable leader when the chips were down. Julius Caesar certainly would not have left him in charge of Rome when he was away on his eastern campaign if he were unsure of his abilities. Marc...
No, Marc Antony did not take part in both triumvirates. The first triumvirate was composed of Caesar, Crassus and Pompey. The second triumvirate, of which he was a part, was composed of Lepidus, Antony and Octavian.
  a blue rose on the left pulse
As Marc Antony was well known as a friend and ally of Julius Caesar, the first thing Antony did when he learned of Caesar's assassination, was to fortify himself in his home. He did this fearing for his own life, based upon his close association with the fallen dictator. In fact the leading...
because he was caesers bestfriend and knew a lot about him
Cleopatra was 39. Marc Antony, according to Plutarch was either 53 or 56. Most other sources seem to agree on him being 53.
Marc Antony contributed to the destruction of the Republic, first, by being part of the second triumvirate and then by fighting a the civil war with Octavian.
If you mean in the play Julius Caesar, I don't know. If you mean in reality, no, he didn't warn Caesar because he didn't know anything about the conspiracy.
Marc Antony was so called a womanizer. #1 Fadia kids: Unknown #2 Antonia kids: Daughter, Antonia #3 Fulvia kids: Sons, Marcus Antonius Antyllus and Iullus Antonius #4 Octavia kids: Daughters, Antonia Major, and Minor #5 Cleopatra kids: Twins Boy and Girl Alexander Helios(sun) andCleopatra Selene...
No one knows for certain when Cleopatra first met Antony, but there are two speculative times that they could have met. The first is when Cleopatra's father was returned to the throne. Antony was the commander of the cavalry that brought Auletes back to Alexandria. It' possible that Cleo was...
Marc Antony had many foes, some of them later allies. Cicero was his enemy from the very early days, Sextus Pompey, although ultimately defeated by Octavian, was also an enemy of Marc Antony, while Octavian himself fought him in the civil war for supreme power.
If you mean in the play, I don't know. In reality, his foes were the republican Optimates in the senate. Cicero was his number one enemy. When Octavian came on the scene and gained power, Octavian and his allies were the foes of Antony, even though they were supposed to be on the same side. All...
Marc Antony came into power by being appointed to his various offices by Julius Caesar. He was Caesar's co-counsul at the time of Caesar's assassination and as he was the only remaining counsul, had the task of straightening out the political situation. Afterwards he became a triumvir with all the...
He formed a triumvirate, sharing power with Augustus and Lepidus.
Mark Antony has been characterized as being a man who had good ideas and noble aspirations, but did not have the self-discipline to carry out his intentions. Self indulgence was his downfall.
Marc Antony was buried along with Cleopatra, most likely after he was embalmed. I say embalmed, because Antony requested that he be buried in Egypt and the Egyptian method of burial was embalming and mummification.
Marc Antony was a distant relative of Julius Caesar on his mother's side. He was a cavalry officer and quaestor in Caesar's army. He was a capable administrator as long as there were no great challenges and was a great orator. He was Caesar's "Master of the Horse" or second in command at Rome when...
Hardly. Cleopatra seduced Antony for the selfish purpose of keeping her throne and continuing her dynasty. This is not to say that she didn't like him or have good times with him, but throughout their entire relationship there was an undercurrent of greed and manipulation on Cleopatra's part.
I am not sure, because I was searching for it on the internet too like you lot maybe and I couldn't find it so I decided to do this little tip for you lot, well if u r looking for where he was born exactly in Rome as ur homework, just say to your teacher that u cudnt find it on the internet as it...
Marc Antony helped the Roman empire in a backhanded way. By losing to Octavian in the civil war he enabled Octavian to add Egypt and all its wealth to the Roman empire.
After being defeated by Octavian at Actium, Marc Antony and Cleopatra made their escape to Egypt where Antony fell into a fit of depression and Cleopatra tried to mislead her people into thinking they were victorious. She rounded up as many of her enemies as she could find and executed them. Antony...
In 43 BC the triumvirs had certain people proscribed. Cicero was one of them who Marc Antony refused to remove from the list, as they had a long standing feud. Although Antony did not personally kill him, Cicero was still a victim of the proscriptions, which Antony authorized.
Most historians think that Marc Antony and Cleopatra only had a symbolic "marriage" that united them in their political purposes and their divinity, as they were both considered gods by the Egyptians. The entire ceremony was staged and meant to impress the Egyptian people. We can't guess what...
Marc Antony is believed to have had 3 children with Cleopatra, but there's more. We know for certain that he had at least ten children. Cicero tells us that he had more than one child with his first wife, Fadia. He then had a daughter with his second wife, Antonia. Next came two sons with his third...
Marc Antony had at least 10 children. We don't know the names of the first two, but the others are: 3 daughters named Antonia (Romans always named their girls after the father's clan), 1 daughter named Cleopatra, and 4 sons named Iulius, Antylus , Alexander and Ptolemy.
Marc Antony, as a soldier, took the soldier's way out by stabbing himself with his sword. The ancient term for this is "falling on his sword".
This is one of history's mysteries. All the ancient writers say about this is that Antony received an erroneous message that Cleopatra was dead. Cleopatra herself either never sent the message or the message got misinterpreted. Something like, "Cleopatra is in her tomb", instead of "Cleopatra is...
Marc Antony committed suicide after receiving a false message that Cleopatra was dead.
Cicero was a firm republican. Marc Antony was a populist. They were bitter enemies. There was no way that Cicero would consider giving Marc Antony any power whatsoever.
Marc Antony lost influence in Rome because he refused to leave the east, Egypt and Cleopatra to come to Rome to defend himself against the charges that Octavian was claiming against him. Although even at the time of Actium, he had many supporters, they still needed his personal leadership rather...
he was first very loyal but later he wanted to be a king to and wanted to be a leader and overtake people
If by "mate" you mean Marc Antony's wives, he had four legitimate ones and Cleopatra. His Roman wives were Fadia, Antonia, Fulvia and Octavia. Cleopatra was a question. Although they had children together, Antony could not legally marry her due to Roman law. In addition he was already married and...
Marc Antony's father was also named Marcus Antonius (Marc Antony is an English version of the name). The elder Antonius also had the honorific name "Creticus" as he fought against the pirates who were based on the island of Crete. His mother was named Julia and she was, as her name suggests, a...
Cleopatra's children with Marc Antony were Alexander Helios, Cleopatra Selene and Ptolemy Philadelphos.
no one. There is no record of which twin was born first.

Besides Antony and Cleopatra were never legally married in the first place. They didn't spend a "honeymoon" anywhere except perhaps Alexandria where they lived. The ancients...
Cleopatra contributed to the downfall of Marc Antony by luring him to Alexandria and indulging him in his weaknesses. She did this for political purposes, but as she was not a very brilliant politician (contrary to the current notion) her schemes backfired and both Marc Antony and herself ended up...

No, completely false. Cleopatra's only husbands were her two brothers. She never married Julius Caesar and the "marriage" to Marc Antony was nothing but a political alliance uniting their political aims. She was a bitter enemy of Octavian, so certainly no marriage there. No, completely false....
