Cleopatra, after the civil war that followed the assassination of Caesar, met with Marc Antony in Assyria where they planned the defense of Egypt against the Romans. Before leaving, Cleopatra entrusted her young daughter, Shila, to the rulers of Assyria to be brought up as their own. After Marc Antony's defeat and Cleopatra's death, Egypt, for the next twenty years, was torn apart and ruled by a youthful Pharaoh, Nemorat, with his despot Queen Mother, Tegi, who desired to unite both kingdoms and strengthen her son's rule by conquering Assyria and making Shila, now a beautiful woman, his queen.Written by
This movie has absolutely nothing to do with Cleopatra's daughter. The English version of this movie was translated completely differently from the original Italian script, setting it in the 1st. century BC, rather than the Bronze age when the Pharaoh Khufu reigned between the years of 2589 - 2566 BC. Cleopatra's actual daughter, Selene, lived between the years 40 - 6 BC. After the death of her mother Cleopatra and Mark Antony she was taken to Rome as a child by Octavian Augustus who adopted her. Augustus later in her life arranged her marriage to King Juba II of Numidia. They were given the kingdom of Mauretania, (modern Algeria and Morocco) to rule as vassal king and queen. They named their capital Caesaria in honour of the Emperor. Actually as well, the real Pharoah Khufu is generally considered to have commissioned the building of the Great Pyramid of Giza, which still stands in Egypt today. . See more »
Resi - Pharaoh's Physician:
[Resi bows as he approaches the pharaoh]
Is my sovereign in good health and suffering no ills?
I want you to answer my question. As a physician to the pharaoh, do you touch and give treatment to beggars?
Resi - Pharaoh's Physician:
For a physician, the various elements of anatomy are the same in all men. Studying them helps me to cure you.
Once you suggested removing the top of my skull. But if any skull is to be removed it is your own. Be thankful you're a good physician and I'm in need of you.

The film talks about Keops , alias Nemorat . Keops was the second pharaoh of four dynasty from ancient Egyptian empire , and he made the great pyramid of Gyze that bears his name . He is succeeded by Kefren who built the sphinx Gyze and the pyramid of the same name . After goes on pharaoh Micerinos. Three pharaohs have pyramids on Gyze : Keops, Kefren and Micerinos.
The movie centers upon scheming Kefren ( Erno Crisa ) and his dark schemes to inherit Egyptian empire . Nemorat ( Conrado Pani )is poisoned , and his wife ( Debra Paget ) is doomed to die with him into the pyramid . Her lover ( Ettore Manni ) designs a plot to free her by means of a potion. Before he will have to face a lot of dangers and risks until obtain his objective . The film blends drama , adventures , love and hokey historical events . Direction by Fernando Cerchio is professionally made , he directed many ¨ sword and sandals¨ and epic films . Cinematography is well realized and Giovanni Fusco's musical score is good . Set design and Egyptian time production design are spectacular . Debra Paget is wonderful , support cast is nice , there are American actors as Robert Alda ,though mostly are Italian players as Andrea Bosic , Rosalba Neri..among others . Rating: 5,5/10 average but entertaining .
