A WELL CONNECTED ROMAN GENERAL; EGYPTIAN ALLIANCE

 

In this original, fictional story based on real events in Rome and Egypt from 40BC to 30BC, Julius Caesar was the lover of Cleopatra VII before Mark Antony.

 

Caesar left Egypt around April 47 BC to deal with matters in Rome. Being married to to a prominent Roman woman, Calpurnia, doubtless he wanted to avoid being seen together with Cleopatra when she bore him their son.

He provided four legions, under the command of Rufio, to secure Cleopatra's tenuous position, and keep her activities in check.

 

Cleopatra and her nominal joint ruler Ptolemy XIV visited Rome sometime in late 46 BC, and were given lodging in Caesar's villa within the Horti Caesaris.

 

Egypt's independence was increasingly threatened by the expanding power of Rome, which had already subjugated several Hellenistic states by the time of Cleopatra's reign.

Power was concentrated in the hands of a few influential individuals, among them Julius Caesar, a military general who had risen to prominence through a series of successful military campaigns.

Caesar was an ambitious man, seeking to consolidate his power and transform the republic into an empire.

Cleopatra was a shrewd ruler who understood the importance of alliances and the power dynamics of the time.

As with their father Ptolemy XII, Caesar awarded both Cleopatra and Ptolemy XIV the legal status of "friend and ally of the Roman people" (Latin: socius et amicus populi Romani), in effect client rulers loyal to Rome.

 

Her journey to Rome was a calculated move, aimed at securing her position as the ruler of Egypt and ensuring the survival of her kingdom in the face of the expanding Roman power.

Caesar, despite his many enemies and the political tensions of the time, openly acknowledged Cleopatra as his consort and their son, Caesarion, as his own.

This was a bold move, as it was a departure from Roman tradition and it further complicated the already complex political scenario.

Despite his successes and popularity with the Roman populace, Caesar had many enemies among the Roman Senate.

His relationship with Cleopatra, his increasing power, and his apparent desire to become a monarch were seen as threats to the Roman Republic and its traditions.

On the Ides of March (March 15) in 44 BC, a group of senators, including Brutus and Cassius, assassinated Caesar in the Senate house.

 

The power vacuum left by Caesar's death led to a period of civil war, which ultimately resulted in the end of the Roman Republic and the rise of the Roman Empire under Caesar's adopted heir, Octavian, later known as Augustus.

Cleopatra's relationship with Rome did not end with her departure. She later formed an alliance with Mark Antony, one of Caesar's allies, which once again put her at the center of Roman politics.

However, this alliance would eventually lead to a conflict with Octavian, culminating in the war that led to Cleopatra's downfall and the annexation of Egypt by Rome.
