Cleopatra and poor journalism #history

CleopatraLiz Taylor as Cleopatra VII

One week in to my History degree – only 155 to go.

Cleopatra has been the top theme of the week – looking at her significant place in history – her seduction of both Julius Caesar and Mark Antony.

Had children by them both and was unlucky not to insert her son, by Caesar, on to the throne of Rome as well as Egypt.

Yet all we learn is of her seductions, her beauty and her suicide – history as tabloid journalism – I blame the Romans!

My only works of history, to date,  are 1492 and all that! and The PC Pioneers
