How did a Greek without a drop of Egyptian blood become one of the most famous Egyptians of all time? Part 2, "The Real Cleopatra", takes you back to Alexander the Great, who established Egypt's Ptolemaic dynasty into which Cleopatra was born. Explore the true source of her beguiling power and her intelligence symbolized by her restoration of the magnificent library at Alexandria. Cleopatra's role as ruler, mother, and consort are examined, revealing a woman very different from her reputation as cruel and promiscuous. Relive her final, dramatic days after Mark Antony's defeat at Actium, and discover her lasting influence on the Roman Empire
