The famous story of Cleopatra’s suicide gets points for drama and crowd appeal: Her lover, Mark Antony, had been defeated in battle by Octavian and, hearing that Cleopatra had been killed, had stabbed himself in the stomach. Very much alive, after witnessing his death, the beautiful last Pharaoh of Ancient Egypt pressed a deadly asp to her breast, taking her own life as well.

But what if Cleopatra didn’t commit suicide at all?

Great article! That is very interesting to speculate on whether or not Cleopatra was murdered or committed suicide. The only source we have for her are Roman sources, and they despised Cleopatra. We know the one story of her dissolving a pearl in vinegar and drinking it, is fiction. But, history is written by the victors...
