Why did Cleopatra VII and Marc Antony want Rome?
Octavian did not necessarily want to kill Marc Antony. He wanted to wage war against him because the two men were locked into a fight over who would become the sole ruler of Rome and her territories. He did not want to be seen as wanting war with Marc Antony. Therefore, he declared war on Cleopatra VII of Egypt, Marc Antony's lover and ally, knowing that Antony would join the war to defend her.
He thought she was dead.
No, Cleopatra's last "husband" if you want to call him that, was the one who helped to bring her down and lose the country. Her last so-called husband was Marc Antony and by forming a political alliance with him, Cleopatra tried to fight Rome itself and she lost, big time.
If by admirers, you mean lover/husband, that would be Marc Antony and Caesar. If you mean something else, you need to specify what you want.
No. Cleopatra was Marc Antony's 5th wife if you want to believe that their "marriage" was something more than a political alliance. His wives were: 1) Fadia, 2) Antonia, 3) Fulvia,4) Octavia, and then 5) Cleopatra.
It is unnecessary He doesnt want to kill Marc Antony because he doesnt want it to seem as if these conspirators wanted to just kill these political leaders. Brutus believed that it was only necessary to kill Caesar. The reason for that is Brutus thought Rome should remain a republic.
Octavian had both political and personal reasons to defeat Cleopatra. As far as the political reasons, Cleopatra was the enemy; Rome had declared war against her and put him at the head of the Roman army, so she had to be defeated. On personal issues, Octavian's sister had been married to Antony. Cleopatra seduced Antony away from his sister and their children. The insult to the family honor had to be avenged.
Cicero was a firm republican. Marc Antony was a populist. They were bitter enemies. There was no way that Cicero would consider giving Marc Antony any power whatsoever.
After the death of Julius Caesar, Rome became a triumvrate and three people ruled Rome who are: Octavian, Mark Antony, Lepidus but then he declared war against Mark Antony because he was giving Roman lands to Cleopatra after 10 years of fighting Mark Antony read a fake letter of the death of Cleopatra so he killed himself by putting his sword on his chest and when Cleopatra heard about Antony's death she let a deadly… Read More
Cleopatra VII was the true last Pharoah of Egypt. She was also the last of the Greek Ptolemies to rule Egypt. She married and had children with two very important Roman people- Julius Caeser and Marc Antony! Mocat11: very nice, but Cleopatra didnt do JUST that, Cleopatra vii (7) helped stabalize Egypt in a time of war. she maintained friends with rome during all of her life and up until the emporor Augustus Caesar took… Read More
Brutus does not want to kill Antony because he believes Caesar is the one and only threat to Rome. They think once Caesar is no longer in the picture Antony will not be any threat to them or Rome.
because they didn't want to live
Cleopatra's lover, Mark Antony had stabbed himself because he had heard Cleopatra was dead. His army had also been defeated by Octavian, the enemy so he decided he had nothing to live for. Cleopatra found out that Antony had killed himself ...
Marc Antony was a loyal to Caesar and one of his most important supporters.
because Cleopatra was with mark and they didn't want mark ruler of rome to give the government to Cleopatra
Cicero wanted Rome to fight Antony because he said Antony was attacking a general of the Roman people.....I really don't know if that is right though, I got it out of a book. :P
Yes he did he also wanted to be a ruler though.
Cleopatra was a ruler of Egypt as well as Gaius Julius Caeser. Cleopatra and Gaius had a relationship in which she gave birth to a son that they called Ptolemy Caesar who was nicknamed Caesarion. After Gaius was assassinated, she aligned with Mark Antony, with whom she produced a set of twins named Cleopatra Selene II and Alexander Helios and a son called Ptolemy Philadelphus. Mark Antony had committed suicide after his general misheard and… Read More
um all i know is its not Marc Antony so... yeah!
Augustus declared war on Mark Antony and Cleopatra VII. He went to Alexandria to make Cleopatra surrender the throne. She didn't want to so she committed succide.
Cassius also wanted to kill Marc Antony, Caesar's closest ally.
Cleopatra was a greedy, ambitious, power hungry person. Her ambition was to rule Rome and gain more territories.
Absolutely yes. Genealogy information of their family lines had been drawn together by professional Egyptologists and historians, leading to the conclusion of many, thousands even, descending from Marc Antony and Cleopatra VII. For more information, you may want to look into on-line ancestry and genealogy websites. Most of them now have Cleopatra's pedigree on-line available to view.
Brutus is an honorable man. He does not deisre to kill unless it is absolutely necessary. He doesn't want to kill Antony because he believes that Caesar is the only threat to Rome's security, and that Antony cannot do anything without Caesar around. They were only concerned with stopping Caesar from becoming a king. He doesnt want to kill Marc Antony because he doesnt want it to seem as if these conspirators wanted to just… Read More
Brutus spares Antony because he doesn't want to further inflame the populace, and thinks that Antony, as Caesar's friend, can make the citizens understand why Caesar was killed. However, he has underestimated Antony, who turns his speech from one of support for the assassins to one that sets Rome against them. Antony reinforces his position of power in Rome and Brutus must flee.
mark Anthony committed suicide.He did not want to be killed by the Romans so he died him self. This also lead to Cleopatra's death. Cleopatra did not want to die because of the Romans so she decided to commit suicide. Something held her back so she did not. But when she heard about mark Anthony's death she flew into a rage and let a poisons snake bite her.
Marc Antony did not change Caesar's will. At Caesar's funeral he read Caesar's will. Caesar's bequeathed a sum of 300 sesterces to every man in Rome and donated his gardens as public parks. Caesar also adopted Octavian and made him his heir. Mark Antony seized Caesar's money which was held at the temple of Ops. Octavian planned to accept his inheritance. Antony disapproved of this. When Octavian demanded his inheritance Marc Antony, who was the… Read More
We don't know for certain. Cleopatra presented a problem for Octavian. Although the Roman people were against Cleopatra and hated her for her relationship with Antony, there was always the possibility that they would feel sorry for her if she were to appear in Octavian's triumph (the way they felt sorry for Cleopatra's sister in Caesar's triumph) and Octavian did not want to take the chance of having to show her clemency. So, if Cleo… Read More
Unfortunately for her and for Egypt, Cleopatra was not a very good leader. She inherited a weak but wealthy country which, at least in Alexandria, did not want her as their queen. It was only through the intervention of Julius Caesar that she reigned. She needed the Roman troops Caesar left in Egypt to keep her on the throne and after Caesar's death, she had to ally herself with Marc Antony in order to prevent… Read More
Brutus is the one that is more democratic. After Caesar gets killed, when Brutus and Antony give the speech to the plebians or villagers, Antony want to make sure Brutus and Cassius get what they deserved for what they did. For Brutus, he wants the govt. to change, and to change Rome into a republic.
Yes, Cleopatra did mean to die. She committed suicide, by taking a poisonous snake and letting it bite her on the arm. Cleopatra did this to avoid being paraded through the streets by Augustus and Octavian. They were planning to take Cleopatra back to Rome and show her off as a prize. Then they were probably going to kill her in public. Cleopatra was a very dedicated queen, so she did not want to be… Read More
They all want Antony to read Caesar's will.
Yes, the Romans distrusted Cleopatra from the time of Julius Caesar onward. Caesar, after making an agreement with Cleo for the repayment of the debt she owed him and establishing her on the throne, left troops in Alexandria for a dual purpose. One was to make sure that Cleopatra held on to the throne, as the Alexandrians did not want her as their queen, and the second reason was to make sure that Cleopatra lived… Read More
Antony is a dangerous man, and is certain to be opposed to the conspirators.
Antony doesn't want to share his power with the likes of Lepidus in the 2nd Triumvirate, wanting to get rid of him and he was planning to change the will of Caesor to his likings so that the people of Rome wouldn't get their 75 drachmas each, and he would instead recieve everything in Caesor's will.
Greed. Cleopatra did not want to share the power with anyone, not even her brother who was also a designated ruler in her father's will.
Cleopatra didn't need anything.. she had just about everything she could want
Mark Antony was one of the most important supporters of Julius Caesar and a relative of his.
Because Mark Antony is deceptive and sly. He's persuasive.
He wants to read it in public.
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… Read More
Cleopatra wanted to rule Egypt because she thought it was her right under her father's will.
no she was already the queen
he doesn't want to let Antony speak at Caesar's funeral because Cassius knows that Antony is manipulative and will turn the crowd against the conspirators.
Antony is dangerous. Cassius foresaw that Antony, if allowed to live, would thwart the conspirators' plans and make himself a dictator.
In today's popular thinking about Cleopatra, a Cleopatra allusion would be any girl who gets what she want through sex. A temprtress. A femme fatal.

Political power, and she loved him
The relatioship between Cleopatra and Caesar was one of mutual benefit, as was Cleopatra's relationship later with Marc Antony. One of the reasons that Caesar came to Egypt in the first place, was to see about payment of the massive debt that Egypt owed him. Cleo's father had borrowed heavily from the Roman money lenders in order to get his throne back, and Caesar and Pompey had bought up the debt. Pompey, being dead, Caesar… Read More
