Template:Infobox hieroglyphsCleopatra VII Philopator (Greek: ????????? ?????????, Late 69 BC – August 12, 30 BC) – who, being far better known than all others of that name, is known to history as Cleopatra without qualifications – was the last active pharaoh of Ancient Egypt, only shortly survived by her son, Caesarion as pharaoh. The name Cleopatra is derived from the Greek name ????????? (Kleopatra) which meant she who comes from glorious father or glory of the father in the feminine form, derived from ????? (kleos) glory combined with ????? (pater) father (the masculine form would be Kleopatros ??????????).Cleopatra was a member of the Ptolemaic dynasty, a family of Greek origin that ruled Egypt after Alexander the Greats death during the Hellenistic period. The Ptolemies, throughout their dynasty, spoke Greek and refused to speak Egyptian, which is the reason that Greek as well as Egyptian languages were used on official court documents such as the Rosetta Stone. By contrast, Cleopatra did learn to speak Egyptian and represented herself as the reincarnation of an Egyptian goddess, Isis.Cleopatra originally ruled jointly with her father, Ptolemy XII Auletes, and later with her brothers, Ptolemy XIII and Ptolemy XIV, whom she married as per Egyptian custom, but eventually she became sole ruler. As pharaoh, she consummated a liaison with Julius Caesar that solidified her grip on the throne. She later elevated her son with Caesar, Caesarion, to co-ruler in name.After Caesars assassination in 44 BC, she aligned with Mark Antony in opposition to Caesars legal heir, Gaius Julius Caesar Octavianus (later known as Augustus). With Antony, she bore the twins Cleopatra Selene II and Alexander Helios, and another son, Ptolemy Philadelphus (her unions with her brothers had produced no children). After losing the Battle of Actium to Octavians forces, Antony committed suicide. Cleopatra followed suit, according to tradition killing herself by means of an asp bite on August 12, 30 BC. She was briefly outlived by Caesarion, who was declared pharaoh by his supporters but soon killed on Octavians orders. Egypt became the Roman province of Aegyptus.To this day, Cleopatra remains a popular figure in Western culture. Her legacy survives in numerous works of art and the many dramatizations of her story in literature and other media, including William Shakespeares tragedy Antony and Cleopatra, George Bernard Shaws play Caesar and Cleopatra, Jules Massenets opera Cl?op?tre and the 1963 film Cleopatra.
