I don't remember any of that in that Peter Rogers documentary I watched.

LOLIRL Nooks!

I must confess my sources for historical facts and thrilling tales of derring-do from days of yore have always been a tad "trashy..."

Why was Cleopatra a slave queen?

She was a Queen of a client state when Caesar was the dictator of Rome, although technically she was not a slave queen at that time.  When Octavian Augustus the heir of Caesar defeated her and Mark Anthony's forces in 30B.C. he was going to bring her to Rome and parade her through the streets in golden chains for his Triumphal Procession, she would have then been a slave queen.

She committed suicide rather than face that ignominy.

I have played a little fast and loose with the timings for the sake of dramatic and sexy headlines.

I have also yet to recreate the destruction of a mighty barbarian empire or a thundering wild beast stampede but such over the top exaggerations are always derigueur when advertising spectacles of such magnificence and decadence.

So what happened to Betty?

Dunno!  I think there were several Betties at one time or another, so maybe this was one of the times they were between Betties ... or maybe they'd just buried her in the pyramid ...
