  • 1) "In a famous aphorism, Blaise Pascal once observed, ''Had Cleopatra's nose been shorter, the face of the world would have changed.'' In other words, if Cleopatra had been less beautiful, Caesar and Antony would not have fallen in love with her, and the course of history would have been fatefully altered."

As Pharaoh, she consummated a liaison with Gaius Julius Caesar that solidified her grip on the throne, and, after Caesar's assassination, aligned with Mark Antony, with whom she produced twins. In all, Cleopatra had four children, one by Caesar (Caesarion) and three by Antony (Cleopatra Selene II, Alexander Helios, and Ptolemy Philadelphus). Her unions with her brothers produced no children. It is possible that they were never consummated; in any case, they were not close. Her reign marks the end of the Hellenistic Era and the beginning of the Roman Era in the eastern Mediterranean. She was the last Pharaoh of Ancient Egypt (her son by Julius Caesar, Caesarion, ruled in name only before Augustus had him executed)."
