Early life 69—51 BC. Berenice was killed in 55 BC when the king returned to Egypt with Roman military assistance. A falling-out between them led to open civil war. Caesar attempted to reconcile the siblings. Ptolemy's chief adviser Potheinos viewed Caesar's terms as favoring Cleopatra, so his forces besieged her and Caesar at the palace. His sister Arsinoe IV was eventually exiled to Ephesus for her role in carrying out the siege. Caesar declared Cleopatra and her brother Ptolemy XIV as joint rulers, but maintained a private affair with her that produced Caesarion.
Cleopatra traveled to Rome as a client queen in 46 and 44 BC. After their meeting at Tarsos in 41 BC, the queen had an affair with Antony. He carried out the execution of Arsinoe at her request, and became increasingly reliant on Cleopatra for both funding and military aid during his invasions of the Parthian Empire and Kingdom of Armenia.
The Donations of Alexandria declared their children Alexander Helios , Cleopatra Selene II , and Ptolemy Philadelphus rulers over various erstwhile territories under his triumviral authority. Octavian engaged in a war of propaganda, forced Antony's allies in the Roman Senate to flee Rome in 32 BC, and declared war on Cleopatra. When Cleopatra learned that Octavian planned to bring her to his Roman triumphal procession, she committed suicide by poisoning.
The popular belief is that she was bitten by an asp. Cleopatra's legacy survives in ancient and modern works of art. Roman historiography and Latin poetry produced a generally critical view of the queen that pervaded later Medieval and Renaissance literature. In the visual arts, her ancient depictions include Roman and Ptolemaic coinage , Roman sculptures , busts , and paintings , as well as reliefs and cameo glass and carvings.
She was the subject of many works in Renaissance and Baroque art including sculptures, paintings, poetry, theatrical dramas, and operas. In modern times Cleopatra has appeared in the applied and fine arts, burlesque satire, Hollywood films, and brand images for commercial products, becoming a pop culture icon of Egyptomania since the Victorian era. Ptolemaic pharaohs were crowned by the Egyptian High Priest of Ptah at Memphis , but resided in the multicultural and largely Greek city of Alexandria , established by Alexander the Great of Macedon.
