The Cleopatras: Episode 7

on BBC Two England

An eight-part serial written by Philip Mackie.
46 BC. Cleopatra gives birth to Caesar's son and takes him to republican Rome to persuade Caesar to declare himself King - with her son as his heir. She is only defeated by Caesar's assassination on the Ides of March. She returns swiftly to Egypt, ruthlessly securing her position there. When casting around for the next man most likely to make her queen of the world her eye settles on a very successful general named Mark Antony.
