Cleopatra – Exit Caesar, Enter Antony! – Extra History – #3

Cleopatra - Exit Caesar, Enter Antony! - Extra History - #3



Cleopatra had put all the chips on Caesar and we all know how that played out. So now she has a choice: back Mark Antony or Octavian. For Cleopatra, the choice was obvious. She had a son with Caesar which conflicted with Octavian’s claims to be the heir of Caesar’s legacy. Mark Antony on the other hand was looking for a long-distance relationship and knew how to party. The choice was rather obvious. But will it pay off for Cleopatra in the end?

For the end of 2020 you guys should have the rest of the year dedicated to Walpole’s Life because we all KNOW that it’s his fault

Ceasar got CLEOPATRA around his finger, she was a mere puppet to the Roman Empire — a protectorate. Egypt was bankrupt and in complete turmoil until Ceasar arrived and gave her an offer she couldnt refuse. Also Cleopatra wasnt brown like you've made her out to be, she was Macedonian Greece from the Ptolemies Dynasty. Several scientific journals have confirmed what we already knew and fascial reconstruction of Cleopatra suggested she was also blonde. Extra Credit sure likes revisionism…

Caeser was already the Pontifex Maximus. It's misleading to say that he changed the calendar just to act like a god. He knew the calendar was flawed and went about fixing it, which happened to be his JOB as Pontifex Maximus. You know, the religious official whose position it was to change the days of the calendar to ensure it was working corretly?

Technically it wasn't proven Cleopatra poisoned her brother. The sources which say she did were written decades after the fact, maybe even centuries. It would make sense however.

Wasn't Cleopatra ethnically Greek? The Ptolemys inbred.

Why was the astronomer who helped Caesar fix the calander depicted as native Egyptian? He was called Sosigenes of Alexandria and was a Greek. Like Cleopatra.

You guys might want to go hit the books again. This video is highly inaccurate.

Caesar was pontifex maximus, he was legally in control of the Roman calendar
