Goofs

Cleopatra actually had two brothers, Ptolemy XIII and Ptolemy XIV, both of whom she was married to. Ptolemy XIII was her first brother/husband, but with the help of Pothinus, forced Cleopatra to flee Egypt with their sister Arsinoe. Caeser, who at this point was already Cleopatra's lover, reinstated her to the throne. However, Ptolemy XIII allied himself with Arsinoe against the pair, but Roman reinforcements forced them to flee the city, and Ptolemy XIII drowned attempting to cross the Nile in 47 BC, aged around 14-15. Cleopatra was then married to her second brother/husband, Ptolemy XIV, who was co-ruler with her (though she retained the power) until shortly after the death of Caesar, when he died (possibly murdered) at the age of about 15 and was replaced with Cleopatra's 3-year-old son Caesarion (Ptolemy XV).

Pile of Romantic Spew
13 August 2008 | by See all my reviews

If this book remained faithful to the book then we can only assume that the author was ignorant of history. Mark Anthony never died of injuries obtained in battle as depicted. He died a coward's death by committing suicide and even then, he asked his slave to do it for him. The slave chose to kill himself instead. In the real story Mark Anthony was ashamed by the slave's great valor and decided to copy him. But even in death Mark Anthony was a drunken failure and failed at his own suicide attempt. He cried out for Cleopatra and was taken to her, bleeding. She hauled his litter up on ropes and Mark Anthony died a while later. If you want history don't watch this movie. If you want romantic drivel then you will probably enjoy it!
