A young queen.
Consecrated at birth as a royal goddess, Cleopatra learns early on from her father’s experience that to rule means to fight. Politically astute, her deep love for Egypt means she’ll do everything in her power to retain its autonomy from the all-devouring Romans.
A great emperor.
Julius Caesar is a legendary warrior whose might helped secure the Egyptian throne for Cleopatra’s father. Years later, when he encounters the now Queen of Egypt, it is more than a meeting of rulers – it is a meeting of souls.
Together they could have ruled the world.
In Julius, Cleopatra finds the first person who challenges and respects her fiercely brilliant mind, who understands her duty and shares her passionate nature. Their union, forged in conflict, seems unbreakable, but are the bonds binding them to their countries even stronger?
Yet in a choice between love and duty, only one can win.
