Cleopatra VII (69-30 BC), Egyptian queen (of Macedonian descent) was the last ruler of the Ptolemaic dynasty in Egypt. A master of self-presentation, she was the first to craft for herself an image or, to be precise, a number of images. Depending on the audience, she might present herself as a goddess, a political leader, or an alluring and exotic woman.
