Julius Ceasar

Julius Caesar had changed the nature of the Roman empire, he had swept away the old, corrupt system of the late Roman republic and had set an example to future Roman emperors as well as other future European leaders to live up to. After his death, Mark Antony had taken control of the empire by giving an emotional speech that that won over Rome's citizens, later on a political alliance was formed with Octavion and Mark Antony, The political situation in Rome compelled Antony to return to Italy where he was forced to conclude a temporary settlement with Octavian, part of which was that he married Octavian's sister, Octavia. Mark Antony took control of the eastern territories whilst Octavian was in charge of western Europe.

Roman Empire In The Time Of Antony And Cleopatra

The roman empire was the post-republican period of the ancient roman civilization, characterised by an autocratic form of government. The empire was establised by Augustus in 27bc. The world was ruled by Rome, one in every four people died and lived under the roman law, the empire in the first century mixed with brutality and could suddenly lurch from civilization, strength and power to terror, tyranny and greed. During this time the men where always the leader of the pact. the different characterization between Rome and Egypt is understood through the "masculinity" of Rome and the Romans and the "femininity" of Egypt and the Egyptians. In traditional criticism of Antony and Cleopatra, ``Rome has been characterized as a male world, presided over by the austere Caesar, and Egypt as a female domain, embodied by a Cleopatra who is seen to be as abundant, leaky, and changeable as the Nile''.
