THE CLEOPATRAS The Forgotten Queens of Egypt

by | Read by Lloyd Llewellyn-Jones

History • 14.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2024

Lloyd Llewellyn-Jones, Welsh professor of ancient history at Cardiff University, presents a fascinating look at seven Cleopatras, the strong women who ruled ancient Egypt over generations in the last centuries BCE. His Welsh accent is smooth and consistent; even slight variations between British and American English pronunciations of some words flow smoothly. He is up to the challenge as he guides the listener through generations of the Ptolemy dynasty, in which all the royal women are named Cleopatra and the royal men answer to Ptolemy. From Cleopatra I Syra to Cleopatra VII, we meet generations of strong women who used their intelligence and cleverness to survive. A pdf of family trees and other supportive materials is vital to keeping everyone straight. N.E.M. © AudioFile 2024, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2024]
