Cleopatra's death bed. She takes her own life by poison

 

 

 

 

 

ALEXANDRIA, EGYPT

 

In this original work of fiction, Cleopatra is the digitally reincarnated Pharaoh of Ancient Egypt, who is cloned from the DNA of her newly recovered Mummy by John Storm.

 

Before taking her own life with a poison asp, the famous ruler (of Macedonian-Greek [mixed race] origin) left instructions for living in the afterlife, to include the potential for resurrection, to be able to follow through with her plans for an Egyptian/Greek empire. Her ultimate scheme to best the Roman rulers that caused her such pain in her past life, by way of revenge.

 

She need not have bothered, since when she is reborn into the 21st Century, the Roman Empire has long ago ceased to exist, much to her relief. But, the world is still in a warlike state, with different super-powers vying with each other.

 

Bt reason of her desire for revenge, her mummification was to an exceptionally high standard. A factor that materially helps those seeking to see Isis reborn.

She is not considered to be an exceptionally beautiful woman by some historians, but is a seductress with contemporary looks, stemming from her Greek origins. Cleopatra was held to be one of the most intelligent people in the world, in her time. A linguist and scholar.

In the John Storm series, Cleopatra VII Philopator's intelligence becomes DNA enhanced, in her replicant state, her thinking is ultra-fast in addition to being exceptionally strong, thanks to her gene manipulation.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Before taking her own life, she considered herself to be Isis reborn. Goddess of the moon, life and magic, in Egyptian religion. Reborn into a new body, that  description is not far from the truth. 

 

It all depends on how well the coders manage to recreate her past life using advanced AI, given that her brain proves to be beyond recovery. Mostly, mummification involved discarding the brain. But Cleopatra ordered her brain to be preserved, like her heart. Other cloning technology factors come into play. Such as the origin of the donor egg, and the degree of genome patch repair.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Cleopatra is often depicted very revealing

 

 

 

The Egyptian Queen was one of the greatest goddesses of Ancient Egypt. In the modern world, she is going to need all of her acumen to make her dreams come true, such as re-uniting with her true love, Mark Antony. Cleopatra is grateful to Professor Krafenstein for bringing her back from the dead. She is very fond of the kind doctor. Not in any way being held captive, or subjugated. In fact, more the other way around. She wants to see the outside world, but needs her father's (creator's) help to make that happen. Baron Victor is only too pleased to see her spread her wings, though her loves her dearly.

 

Reborn, Cleopatra devotes herself to protecting antiquities, and fighting injustice. Her work is recognised by Blue Shield, who gratefully accept her expertise, as her lover, John Storm, engages more and more in conservation matters.

 

 

 

 

        

 

 

Cleopatra VII Philopator ("glory to her father") was a very popular name among the Ptolemy Dynasty, but the seventh was the most famous, and a legend in her time.

 

Cleopatra VII wasn't an Egyptian. Her bloodlines were Macedonian, Persian, and Greek. Her father was Ptolemy XII Nothos ("the Bastard"), the illegitimate son of Ptolemy XI by one of his concubines. It is said that Ptolemy XI was forced to marry his own elderly stepmother, who was also his cousin. Scholars of Egyptology also believe that her mother was Cleopatra V, the wife and sister of Ptolemy XII, and she died during Cleopatra VII's birth, or soon afterwards, of complications during childbirth.

Cleopatra's ancestry is said to connect back to Alexander the Great, who ruled Egypt in 332 B.C., and founded the city of Alexandria. After Alexander's death on June 10, 323 B.C., his staff officer, Ptolemy, declared himself him in 3-4 B.C., and called himself "Soter I" (Soter meaning savior). Ptolemy I Soter had a strong hooked nose that genetic trait of his line. Ptolemy XII Auletes ("the flute") had Soter's large nose and was Cleo's father. After her mother's death, Ptolemy married his second (unknown) wife and she gave him two sons.

By 305 B.C. Ptolemy became ruler of Egypt and founded the Ptolemaic Dynasty of twelve kings, of the same name, and Cleopatra VII. In this time, wealthy Egyptians tried to gain a Greek education and the Greeks influenced their art and architecture (A. J. Spencer, Death in Egypt. London: Penguin Books, 1991, 25). The Ptolemies continued the old Egyptian ideals and built temples to their gods, and those of Egypt. After Anthony and Cleopatra's death in 30 B.C., Egypt came under Roman rule and they constructed monuments with Roman Emperors as Pharaoh, as in Egypt rule.

 

 

 

 

On meeting John Storm, the reborn Cleopatra, is strangely attracted to him. He sets her heart racing, but does not know why that is, even though he is attractive, that is not it. She falls for her rescuer. John is the spitting image of Mark Antony, but does not know it, or realise his ancestry, since there are no photographs or truly accurate representations from that period. They were fated to be re-united.
