Depictions of CleopatraCleopatra EssayCleopatra has been represented in numerous different ways and places: plays, movies, poems and stories. What we know of her story is awe-inspiring, but we dont know her full story or the entire context behind it. This lack of accurate archaeological and historical information about Cleopatra has stimulated the collective imaginations of those who have lived after her and resulted in a multitude of representations of her character, both in historical records and in popular culture.The written histories from Cleopatra's time are inaccurate regarding her because of the individual writers' biases, which has created many different depictions of her character. Important historians from and after Cleopatras time such as Cassius Dio and Plutarch were influenced by Octavian, who was trying to ruin Cleopatra's reputation as part of his war agains
