Marcus Antonius (83 - 30 B.C.) was a skilled soldier and co-ruler of Rome with Caesar's nephew Octavian from 43 to 32 B.C. Cleopatra (68 - 30 B.C.), well known for her charm and beauty, was Queen of Egypt and an ally and lover of Julius Caesar In 41 BC, Anthony and Cleopatra met and fell in love, marrying in 37 B.C. Anthony gave Cleopatra and their children a share of his Roman Provinces in 34 B.C. a move which enraged Octavian, who waged war on the couple, pursuing them in their defeat to Alexandria. Antony, hearing a false rumor of Cleopatra's death, stabbed himself. He was carried to her and died in her arms. In turn, Cleopatra committed suicide by placing an asp on her chest, apparently fearing Octavian’s revenge.
