Historical Description Edit
Cleopatra VII ruled ancient Egypt as co-regent (first with her two younger brothers and then with her son) for almost three decades. She became the last in a dynasty of Macedonian rulers founded by Ptolemy, who served as general under Alexander the Great during his conquest of Egypt in 332 B.C. Well-educated and clever, Cleopatra could speak various languages and served as the dominant ruler in all three of her co-regencies. Her romantic liaisons and military alliances with the Roman leaders Julius Caesar and Mark Antony, as well as her supposed exotic beauty and powers of seduction, earned her an enduring place in history and popular myth.
Attacking Strategies Edit
- Cleopatra can tank up defensive damage and deal damage to enemy defenses/troops.
- AVOID ballistics towers, cannons, or anti-tank towers with Cleopatra. These defense buildings are designed to take out any troop/general that has high hit-points.
- A good way to avoid the Cannons is to rally straight back out of your clean path near buildings, bringing your troops back with your generals to help escort them or for Cleopatra to kill any cavalry, foot troop, or general stalking your troops
- Avoid rallying at 45 degree angles, since your troops are defenseless until meeting the rally point, and it is very possible cannons, towers, and troops can kill Cleopatra and your troops if you pass by the defense buildings.
- If you are attacking without tanks with your troops, Cleopatra can take up some of the damage, and is best used to take out mortar fire. Beware not to rally your troops with Cleopatra to a Mortar that can still hit your troops, since it will turn into that Cleopatra will be the only one alive.
- (Mainly used for Medieval age) If a mortar is in position to wipe out troops, but is easily accessible without Cannons in range, put Cleopatra down and rally her to the Mortar to wipe it out. Then continue your attack with placement of troops and tactics.
- Cleopatra was a daughter of Ptolemy XII
- Ptolemy’s advisers acted against Cleopatra, who was forced to flee Egypt for Syria in 49 B.C.
- On August 12, 30 B.C., after burying Antony and meeting with the victorious Octavian, Cleopatra closed herself in her chamber with two of her female servants. Her death is uncertain though Plutarch and other writers advanced the theory that she used a poisonous snake known as the asp, a symbol of divine royalty.
- Cleopatra’s body was buried with Antony’s
