What can you tell me about Marc Antony and Cleopatra?
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 blamed and used as an excuse for the war. Cleopatra and Antony were defeated by Octavian and they both committed suicide.
