Cleopatra was Queen of ancient Egypt, belonging to the Ptolemaic dynasty and de facto ruler of Egypt from 51 to 30 BC.
Cleopatra revived the Ptolemaic powers through diplomatic skills, in addition to her using her personality to make alliances with Roman rulers, and to have Egyptian competitors murdered. Her fame is connected to a turbulent life of love affairs with the most influential men of her time. Her actual achievements had only importance for a short period of time - with the revival of Ptolemaic powers - but nothing proved to last.
Her life story has inspired playwrights, and movie makers, making her the most famous personality of ancient Egypt.
