Cleopatra as a role model and what lessons can be learned from how she lived her life

Cleopatra is arguably the most fascinating woman who has ever lived. The Pharaoh is so captivating that at least 2000 years after her death, there are nearly 200 films, TV movies and documentaries and almost 4000 books written about her listed on Amazon.com! (This compares with 1200 books on Marilyn, 300 written about Madonna and 150 about Coco Chanel). I devour anything and everything I can about Cleo, from documentaries on the History Channel to archaeological articles sent to me online by a friend.

Why? What makes a woman that lived so long ago still irresistible after all this time? I would examine her extraordinary life from a new perspective: Cleopatra as a role model and what lessons can be learned from how she lived her life.

I divided her fantastic biography into four "Cleotes" and how we can apply these quotes and lessons to our own lives.
