Historian and author Duane W. Roller presents his book, Cleopatra: A Biography, described as a “rich, comprehensive portrait of Cleopatra in her many dimensions.”

Few personalities from classical antiquity are more famous—yet more poorly understood—than Cleopatra VII, queen of Egypt.

Roller’s compelling portrait of the queen illuminates her prowess as a royal administrator who managed a large and diverse kingdom extending from Asia Minor to the interior of Egypt, as a naval commander who led her own fleet in battle, and as a scholar and supporter of the arts.

The book will be available for sale.
