Milk And Honey Bath

Milk And Honey Bath

VAV!/February 4, 2014

Cleopatra, a sensual and wanton woman of mystery and intrigue, was a queen at 18 and ruled most of the entire eastern Mediterranean coast. As a calculating and shrewd leader, she enjoyed the love interests, liaisons and military alliances with the forbidden and the powerful including Roman leaders, Julius Caesar and Mark Antony. She was a declared goddess who revealed her very mystique through a show of pageantry and guile.  Her life, in total, was epic.  Her powers of seduction and sultry exotic beauty were to be reckoned with.  

Despite power and riches, or in spite of these worldly treasures, Cleopatra killed herself on August 12, 30 B.C. The facts of her demise remain unclear....was it the famous asp that killed the queen, or a vial of poison?
