o Bio: I have been the queen (pharaoh) of Egypt since I was eighteen years old, when my father, who had been the pharaoh before me, died. My family began to rule Egypt about 250 years before I was born, when Alexander the Great conquered Egypt. One of my ancestors, Ptolemy, was a general in Alexander's army. During the first four years that I was queen, I ruled along with my younger brother Ptolemy XIII. I was also married to him, but that was just a formality expected of kings and queens, and I did not have any children with him. In fact, he was only ten years old when I married him, so naturally I was the dominant ruler. However, we had a fight that started about a year after we became co-rulers. The fight got so bad that I had to flee Egypt to nearby Syria, where I raised an army to go back to Egypt and defeat my brother, who drowned in the Nile River. My true lover around that time was Julius Caesar, the leader of Rome, and he helped me regain my power in Egypt. However, I could not marry him because Roman law prohibits Romans from marrying non-Romans, so I married my youngest brother, Ptolemy XIV, who was only twelve, and appointed him as my co-ruler. Right after that, I had son with Caesar, and we called him Caesarion ("little Caesar"). When little Caesar was three, his father was assassinated, and I decided to poison my brother so little Caesar could become my co-ruler. A few years after that, I fell in love with Caesar's best friend, Marc Antony, and we have been lovers for eleven years. It is now 30 BC, I am 39 years old, and have been queen of Egypt for 22 years. Most people think that I am beautiful, but some people think that I use my beauty to attract powerful men such as Caesar and Marc Antony, so that they can help me be powerful. However, I am not as shallow as some people think I am; rather, in addition to being a powerful leader, I am a scholar, a philosopher, and a chemist. Anyway, my lover Marc Antony has been in a power struggle for control of Rome, and he fled to Egypt. He heard false news that I had died, so he fell on his sword to commit suicide. I am pretty sure that the Romans are now going to take over Egypt, so I am going to commit suicide by letting an asp, a poisonous snake, bite me.
