The might of Caesar. The beauty of Cleopatra. Together they could have forged an empire the likes of which had never been seen before. Tragically, it was not meant to be...but what of the son that came of their passion? Gillian Bradshaw gives us an answer in CLEOPATRA'S HEIR. The son of Julius Caesar and the fabled Cleopatra, Caesarion was seen by some as the hope of Rome and Egypt, by others the folly of a commander's lust for a wanton foreign schemer. For the new Roman ruler Octavius, Caesarion is the threat that could topple his dreams of a safe and peaceful Roman empire. But what if Caesarion had survived the inevitable assassination and went underground to hide his identity? What if he went from a life filled with every comfort and honour to near-slavery and humiliation? Only after he has lost it all does Caesarion come to know friendship, honesty and even love - and the essential truth that a man can be noble and true, even when bereft of land, titles and a name.
