Can't a girl just be pretty AND rule the world. This is exactly what Cleopatra VII Philopator (simply known as Cleopatra), the last Pharaohess of the Hellenistic Period, wanted. Up until this point, the Egyptian empire had really been something to be reckoned with. Their sources of knowledge and magic and power was unrivaled. All poor Cleopatra wanted was to rule the world. Is that too much to ask?? Through a series of affairs and birthing of children, she pretty much tried to sleep her way to the top. When that didn't work, she lent out her military assistance to powerful men, ending up falling in love with a Roman general named Antony, who was involved in a Roman Civil War. He was a terrible General I might add and ended up killing himself because he couldn't win.
Along the way, besides sleeping with people, Cleopatra orchestrated a number of plots to kill those who opposed her. Most of the time, she got her own way, too... except for that very last time she butted into the Roman Civil War. Her navy fleet was destroyed and the Romans invaded Egypt. After learning that her not-so-secret lover Antony had killed himself, she decided she was going to do the same thing. She poisoned herself with the bit of an asp and died before the Roman forces could descend upon her.
Cleopatra was an excellent manipulator. As such, she was great at exacting revenge and setting up plots to kill those who opposed her. This is the spin that is taken on this piece. It invokes the presence of the ancient Cleopatra to revenge upon the people and situations in your life that are causing you pain or holding your back. She obviously isn't going to kill for you. We won't allow that. However, she will make sure that all who do wrong to you suffer their karma and bring them to their knees to be humbled. She will also eliminate those obstacles that are in your way of doing what it is you want to do most. Want to be a singer but have a terrible voice, Cleo will reverse that for you. Want to be an artist, but you suck at drawing, Cleo can reverse that for you. Basically this piece is all about revenge and reversing your situations to be able to get what you want out of life, which is something Cleopatra couldn't quite land a deal on in her mortal life. Now she will try three times as hard to get your what you want, while making sure your adversaries are crushed. That's a sweet deal if you ask me!!
This is sterling silver and old.
