Caesar and Cleopatra?

Julius Caesar was the top man in Rome when he met Cleopatra. Cleopatra was feuding with her brother for control of Egypt at the time and Cleopatra was in exile. In Cleopatra's father's will the kingdom was to be shared by Cleopatra and her brother with Rome as its protector. When Caesar came to Egypt, Cleopatra knew that he was the only one who had the power to reestablish her on the throne. Her interest in Caesar was purely self-centered.
