A vivid account of two female pharaohs; beautiful Nefertiti (1367-1350 BC) and mysterious Cleopatra (51-30 BC). Both politically adept, they also distinguished themselves in their love for the greatest men of their day: Nefertiti for the sun-worshipping Akhenaten, and Cleopatra for Julius Caesar and Mark Antony. The author has researched museum collections and excavation reports, as well as contemporary writings, to recreate the settings of their domestic lives.
