SOS-Could It Really Mean Save Our Souls FROM CLEOPATRA!?
"Cleopatra's nose, had it been shorter, the whole face of the world would have been changed."-William Shakespeare. Shakespeare may have exaggerated just a bit (or a lot) but Egypt would have been a lot different without Cleopatra. Cleopatra ruled from 51 BC to 30 BC. So she ruled 20 years with great power. Like I said in my last post, Cleopatra did anything for power. I'm talking like murdering, poisoning and bribing. Cleopatra's family fought for many years among themselves, trying to get power, (CAT FIGHT!) but Cleopatra won. (probably because she killed tons of people) She held off Rome's army for many years by treaty (the power of paper!). But all her twisted ways came back to bite her. Because sword makes a HUGE hole in paper, no matter how well you write. She had lots of smarts, and helped her country in many ways. But she also hurt it. It's your decision what she did most.
