How did people feel about Cleopatra VII?
Cleopatra had more enemies than friends. Her subjects did not want her as their queen and they fought a war against Caesar to prevent her from becoming their ruler. Then when she was set on the throne, the Alexandrians resented the fact that it was Rome in the person of Caesar who established Cleo as their ruler. Her neighbors were at odds with her as she meddled in their affairs, was granted parts of their territories, and Herod out and out hated her for her interference in his domestic affairs as well as political ones. It goes without saying how Rome felt about her. But don't misunderstand, Cleopatra also had her friends and supporters, but they were some of the nobles, priests and some officials in Alexandria, not people who could help her in any meaningful way.
