With sumptuous drama reconstruction and evidence from key experts including Bettany Hughes, Dr Chris Naunton and Dr Robert Steven Bianchi, this is the true story behind Egypt’s most famous ruler.

This captivating documentary reveals how Cleopatra survived a murderous and incestuous dynasty, secured her future by seducing the greatest leader in Rome, and how her eventual fall from grace and ultimate death meant history would never forget her.
