Although she struggled with her brother for power from about 50 BC, Cleopatra was not established as the sole ruler of Egypt until the spring of 47 BC. This was because she had allied herself with Julius Caesar and the force of Rome to back her up. She died in 30 BC. So she actually ruled for about 17 years.
