Caesar established Cleopatra firmly upon the Egyptian throne and when he left for Rome, he left Roman legions to support Cleopatra. He also cut the massive debt that Cleopatra owed him by half.
Julius Caesar was top dog in the Roman world at the time he entered Egypt. After the Alexandrian War, he established Cleopatra as queen along with her younger brother as co-ruler. Then Caesar and Cleo took that famous trip down the Nile. That was not a love fest, but a political statement. Caesar and his Roman troops were telling the Egyptian people that Cleopatra was the queen backed up by the force of Rome. That… Read More
Becuase she was the queen of egypt
it might have been Cleopatra
Antony and Cleopatra
Cleopatra could in no way hurt Rome. She was a minor queen of a weak country with no military to speak of. However she actually helped Rome. By her defeat she enabled the civil wars to end and the Pax Romana to begin.
Which time? It is now understood that Cleopatra made two trips to Rome. She would not go and stay there for close to two years for no practical reason. The reasons for both of her trips to Rome were political with important Egyptian territory at stake.
Cleopatra was not exactly the last queen of Egypt. There were modern kings and they had wives so their wives would be queens. However Cleopatra was the last queen of ancient Egypt. Her dynasty ended upon her death and Rome took over the country, abolishing the monarchy.
Cleopatra made no contributions whatsoever to Egyptian civilization or culture. The only thing she did as a "contribution" was to lose her kingdom to Rome.
Casesar erected a statue of Cleopatra in Rome in the temple he built called the temple of Venus Genetrix. This was to celebrate his Egyptian victory and Cleopatra was the symbol of Egypt at the time.
When Cleopatra became queen, Julius Caesar was fighting a civil war with Pompeii and Rome, besides being in political turmoil, was gobbling up territory surrounding Egypt.
to become famous she was the 1st women ruler with out an Egyptian king. she had a (2) men but he was important to rome.
In Egypt, Cleopatra was known as Cleopatra Philopator. In Rome she was known as a seductress, embodying all of the vices of the decadent east. To the rest of the world, she was known as the queen of Egypt. In her own mind, Cleopatra was a goddess, the new Isis.
After Cleopatra died, Egypt was ruled by Rome. Recently, an inscription has been discovered proclaiming Octavian pharaoh, but Octavian never took that title. It is assumed that the Egyptian priests considered Octavian their new pharaoh in their quest for continuity. After Cleopatra died, Egypt was ruled by Rome.

Cleopatra was queen of Egypt from Ptolemy dynasty (dynasty established by one of the Alexander the Great generals). Cleopatra lived in 1st century before Christ. Cleopatra is famous by her beauty and by her relations to powerful men of Rome (G.I. Caesar and Antonius).
Augustus (formerly called Octavian) was the first emperor of Rome and his rule lasted for 41 years, from 27 BC to 14 AD. He oversaw the transition by defeating first his enemies from the Senate, who were responsible for the assassination of Julius Caesar, and then finally Mark Antony, his former ally, and his lover, the Egyptian queen Cleopatra.
Cleopatra Selene was not killed. She was taken to Rome and raised by Octavia, her father's ex-wife. She was married to the king of Mauretania and thus also became a queen.
There's no record of Cleopatra ever going on any expeditions. The only traveling she did was for political purposes, such as up the Nile with Caesar, to Rome, to Antioch and to Actium.
No, Caesar summoned her to Rome. There's a difference. Caesar had established Cleopatra and her brother on the Egyptian throne, but the senate had to confirm their status as Allies. An allied kingdom had privileges and also responsibilities. The senate had to debate this and hear from the Egyptian representatives. It was much more efficient to have Cleopatra, on the spot to give answers, than to have her in Egypt writing long distance letters. By… Read More
Cleopatra was by no means a powerful queen. That's why she had to ally herself with both Caesar and Antony. Although she had authority over Egypt, her actual power, such as it was, came from her alliances with Rome.

As queen Cleopatra, for a brief time, gained territories almost equal to those of her ancestors. However this did not really affect Egypt as the tribute from these lands went directly to Cleopatra not to the people in general. The main thing that she did that affected Egypt was to cause Egypt to lose its independence and become a province of Rome.
Both Cleopatra and Marc Antony had individual histories. Cleo as an Egyptian queen and Antony as a soldier/politician. If you mean in their relationship history or their history together, they were first and foremost political allies. They had a sexual relationship, in particular when Cleopatra wanted some concession from Rome, although she did not always get her way. Both of them made errors in judgement and paid the ultimate price for their mistakes.
No one brought Cleopatra to Rome. She came on her own for political purposes. It is thought that Cleo made two trips to Rome, the first one trying to get the senate to recognize her as queen and ally of Rome, and the second time to keep close to the negotiations that were being held in the senate regarding a reorganization of some provinces, in particular, the future of Cyprus.
After the death of Cleopatra, Egypt became a Roman province and was ruled by Rome.
Cleopatra had NO empire. The days of the Egyptian empire were long gone by the time Cleopatra gained the throne. Egypt was a kingdom at the time of Cleopatra, wealthy, but militarily weak. Yes, she did gain some territory from Antony at the Donations of Alexandria, but after Actium it was returned to Rome.
Kind of. Antony "married" Cleopatra but he still had a Roman wife at the time. He also knew very well that a marriage to Cleopatra would not be recognized in Rome because she was a foreigner. Some historians think this was a symbolic marriage uniting them in their political alliance staged for the Egyptian people.
Cleopatra was the last queen of the Ptolomy dynasty in Egypt. She waged war against Rome and was defeated, losing her country, dynasty and life.
Cleopatra traveled mainly in her own kingdom. She had to be certain places for the public religious ceremonies that were part of her duties. Other documented places where she traveled were to Rome, Tarsus, Antioch, Jerusalem, and Actium.
Cleopatra VII of Egypt did not try to take Roman lands after Caesar's death. Cleopatra was Julius Caesar's lover and then the lover of Mark Antony, one of the three men who ruled Rome in the alliance called the Second Triumvirate which was formed after Caesar's assassination. Mark Antony and his ally Octavian (later he was called Augustus) then got locked in a power struggle. Octavian declared war on Cleopatra because it was easier than… Read More

Cleopatra's ambitions caused her country to lose its independence and become a vassal of Rome. Another conquest of Egypt by a foreign power was her legacy to her country.
Cleopatra needed no guardian, except perhaps when she was a little child. However you could say that Julius Caesar was her guardian in a sense, because he established her on the throne and made it clear to the Egyptian people that Rome was backing her. But, Cleopatra, because she was a woman did need to have a male co-ruler under Egyptian law/custom. Her marriages to her brothers ended in the brothers dying, so she made… Read More
I'm assuming you mean the Cleopatra movie with Elizabeth Taylor and the answer is no, no, and no. That was all Hollywood hype. Do you think for one minute that the Roman people would line the streets to cheer a foreign queen? In fact, Cleopatra herself never entered Rome. Rome had a sacred wall called the "pomerium" which guarded the core of the city. No crowned head could enter this area. This was a sacred… Read More
No, Cleopatra was not a powerful queen. Her claim to fame was her sexual activities not her governmental activities. Egypt, at the time of Cleopatra, was in a very weakened state, militarily. Egypt had no army to speak of. Caesar had to leave troops there to both protect Cleopatra and police Egypt. Marc Antony even had to give Cleopatra a bodyguard. All during the reign of Cleopatra, the shadow of Rome loomed over Egypt. Cleo… Read More
No. Cleopatra lost Egypt to Rome, along with its wealth and independance.
No, Cleopatra committed suicide rather than go to Rome as a prisoner.
Cleopatra had nothing to do with changing Rome's history from republic to empire. Rome was already an empire under the republican form of government. Because Cleopatra was the last queen of ancient Egypt and was defeated by Rome, her country became another Roman province -- an addition to Rome's empire. What she did do, was to help bring down the republic and enable Octavian to establish the principate.
