Rethinking Cleopatra: African and Queen?
The last Cleopatra was the daughter of the twelfth Ptolemy; her mother and grandmother were not of the royal family and it has been suggested that they were Egyptians. The first part of the lecture will explore evidence for Cleopatra’s role and presentation in her home country and consider how she presented herself in Rome. Her traditional Kemetic images are often ignored in favour of European style image of the ruler on coinage, when in fact there are no Greek-style representations of Cleopatra from Egypt. The second part of the lecture will consider the traditional titles used by Cleopatra, who is often referred to by the Greek title of Queen. Finally, we will consider how Cleopatra’s dual heritage, presentation, and reception is still relevant.
