There love story was so tragic that William Shakespeare wrote a play about it in the early sixteen hundreds. She ruled y her father and then became the only ruler of their country.
Anthony’s first wife was not happy about this and then tried to attack Octavian. He tried to fix it by returning to Fulvia but the damage was done and then she died.
So to try to win Octavian’s trust back, Antony married Octavia Minor, who was Octavian’s sister.
This all happened just weeks before Cleopatra was getting ready to deliver twins. Since Antony has doubts about the true loyalties of Octavian, he left a pregnant Octavia and went back to Cleopatra.
Shortly after Octavian assembled a military attack on Antony and Cleopatra, while they were in Egypt.
