Aug 12 30 BC - Cleopatra Commits Suicide

A post taking real life incidents from this day in history and my view of them as if they were happening today and what my honest view would have been then on that day  ignoring hindsight or knowledge of how it ended.

When you have spent your life wearing a beard, murdering your sisters, marrying your brother and taking baths in milk while going through Roman leaders like most people go through sandals, you are never going to bow out quietly and Cleopatra was a drama queen to the end.
Not for her jumping off a pyramid or throwing herself in front of a chariot, she got a poisonous snake to bite her on the breast after her boyfriend, Mark Anthony, fell on his sword, literally.
A warning, if one was needed, that inbreeding and being a bit of a slapper with a fancy for men in togas never ends well.
