Predecessors of Cleopatra


Read by LibriVox Volunteers

(4 stars; 2 reviews)

This book provides such information as was known at the onset of the 20th Century about Egyptian queens in antiquity. Much has been learned in the ensuing 100+ years so this book needs to be considered in the context of the time in which it was written. Queens are covered from Princess Nefert of the 3rd Dynasty through the (in)famous Cleopatra. Leigh North is the pseudonym of Mrs. Elizabeth Stewart Phelps. (Summary by mleigh) (13 hr 36 min)
