Noted scholar Harold Bloom once noted that Cleopatra was the "world's first celebrity." She has been celebrated in song, business names, perfumes, slot machines, and even an asteroid, the 216 Kleopatra. This site includes an engaging article on Cleopatra by Chip Brown, which originally appeared in the July 2011 issue of National Geographic magazine. The article is a jaunty and fascinating look into determining the real location of Cleopatra's grave and this alone would be reason to visit this site. There are some excellent extras here, including a gallery of images, an interactive map of Cleopatra's Alexandria, and a fun quiz that tests visitors' knowledge of Cleopatra in pop culture.
