Cleopa`tra, Queen of Egypt, a woman distinguished for her beauty,
her charms, and her amours; first fascinated Cæsar, to whom she bore a
son, and whom she accompanied to Rome, and after Cæsar's death took Mark
Antony captive, on whose fall and suicide at Actium she killed herself by
applying an asp to her arm, to escape the shame of being taken to Rome to
grace the triumph of the victor (69-30 B.C.).
