What happened, when ... a few things to surprise you
Sloppy history refers to Strabo's slam about "only the oldest was legitimate". Since Cleopatra VII was born while her mother Cleopatra V was still on the throne, he was dead wrong.
What else is "new"?
Cleopatra VII shared the throne with her father, Ptolemy XII. Know that?
There's bound to be something interesting here. How about Josephus lying? People love to regale in Cleopatra VII ordering murders of her family ... that never happened.
