History

Cleopatra (69-30 BCE) was a Hellenistic ruler of Egypt, originally sharing power with her father Ptolemy XII and later with her brothers/husbands Ptolemy XIII and Ptolemy XIV; eventually gaining sole rule of Egypt. As Pharaoh, she consummated a liaison with Gaius Julius Caesar that solidified her grip on the throne, and, after Caesar's assassination, aligned with Mark Antony, with whom she produced twins.

Prior to her ascension to the throne, Cleopatra encountered the time traveler Rip Hunter who was masquerading as an emissary for Julius Caesar. Rip aided Cleopatra in securing her rights to the throne of Egypt, but Cleopatra later betrayed Hunter, using a mystical amulet to convince him that he was in truth Caesar himself. Fellow time master Jeff Smith (disguised as Ptolemy) rescued Rip from Cleopatra's affections and removed the amulet. Along with the real Ptolemy, the Time Masters fought against Cleopatra's army, a conflict which culminated in a truce that allowed both Cleopatra and Ptolemy to rule in unison.

The real Julius Caesar embarked on an invasion of Cleoptra's domain, but Hunter kidnapped Caesar and handed him over to Cleopatra. Knowing that Caesar was in love with her, Cleopatra used her gift of seduction to win Caesar over, thus halting any future plans of invasion.

Cleopatra had a second encounter with Rip Hunter just a short time later. Rip pulled Cleopatra from the time stream and entered her into a beauty pageant with other notable women of history including, Theodora, Helen of Troy and Scheherazade. The four women actually began fighting with one another inside of Rip's Time Sphere. Cleopatra did not win the contest however and Rip soon returned her to her normal time period.

Cleopatra died in 30 B.C. The circumstances behind her death appears to differ depending upon the source. Some sources indicate that she was bitten by an asp, others cite that she consumed a poison that ended her life.

Notes:

  • This version of Cleopatra VII Thea Philopator (Earth-One), including all history and corresponding appearances, was erased from existence following the collapse of the Multiverse in the 1985-86 Crisis on Infinite Earths limited series and is now considered apocryphal. * Cleopatra was born in Alexandria thus making her an Egyptian, but her actual family line is of Hellenistic Greek heritage.

Cleopatra was the famous Egyptian "Queen of the Nile" and a popular romantic figure in historical epics.

Miss Piggy has taken on the persona in a number of instances. Her first such appearance was in episode 409 of The Muppet Show where she competes with Beverly Sills during the opera number, "Pigoletto." On occasion, others have attempted to step on Piggy's Egyptian turf.

Origin
Origin
Cleopatra VII was a Greek born in Alexandria, Egypt. She was first briefly co-ruler with her father, Ptolemy XII Auletes and on his death became co-ruler with her brother Ptolemy XIII in the spring of 51 BC. She was at the time the oldest child of Auletes, since two older sisters had died. She also had one younger sister whose name was Arsinoe IV. She was subsequently co-ruler with her brother, Ptolemy XIV. Since the Ptolemaic throne was transmitted in matrilinear fashion, the Kings had to marry their sisters in order to be qualified to rule. Following the deaths of her brothers she named her eldest son co-ruler as Ptolemy XV Caesarion (44–30 BC).

History

Cleopatra was a Hellenistic ruler of Egypt, originally sharing power with her father Ptolemy XII and later with her brothers/husbands Ptolemy XIII and Ptolemy XIV; eventually gaining sole rule of Egypt. Cleopatra adopted common Egyptian beliefs and deities. Her patron goddess was Isis, and thus during her reign it was believed that she was the re-incarnation and embodiment of the goddess of wisdom. She was believed to be one of the most beautiful women in history.

As Pharaoh, she consummated a liaison with Gaius Julius Caesar that solidified her grip on the throne. After Caesar's assassination, she aligned with Mark Antony, with whom she produced a pair of twins and a son. In all, Cleopatra had four children, a first born son by Caesar (Ptolemy Caesar nicknamed Caesarion) and three by Mark Antony (the pair of twins, Cleopatra Selene II and Alexander Helios, and last a son Ptolemy Philadelphus). Her successive unions with her brothers produced no children. Her reign marked the end of the Hellenistic Era and the beginning of the Roman Era in the eastern Mediterranean.

She was the last Pharaoh of Ancient Egypt. Her son by Julius Caesar, Caesarion, co-ruled in name with his mother only a very few years before Octavian, later on renamed Caesar Augustus, had him executed, most probably by strangulation, which in Antiquity was the execution method reserved for infants and pre-pubescents, thus adding humiliation to his execution.

After Antony and Cleopatra were defeated at Actium by their rival and Caesar's legal heir, Gaius Julius Caesar Octavian (who later became the first Roman Emperor, Augustus), Cleopatra committed suicide, allegedly by means of an asp bite.

Meeting Iron Man

She once felt strong feelings for Iron Man, who had been pulled back in time 2,000 years by her enemy, the mad King Hatap, who had rebelled against Cleopatra. Iron Man made his way to the court of Cleopatra and helped defend it against an attack by a Roman legion. Earning the gratitude and friendship of Cleopatra, Iron Man informed her of Hatap's plans and helped her fight off his army. Fearing defeat at Iron Man's hands, Hatap sought to use the charm to return to the modern era, but Iron Man squirted some oil on the charm, causing Hatap to drop it. Diving for the charm, Hatap inadvertently landed on an upturned sword, which apparently killed him. Hatap's army fled, and Iron Man used the charm to return to his time, despite Cleopatra's requests that he stay and rule by her side.[1]
