No Homework here (especially seeing that everyones out for Christmas Break)
I just couldn't help but think of just how much the world as we know it today would be changed. The Roman Empire laid the foundation for all of western civilization. All of our aldermen, senators democrats, republicans, almost everything we have was built on what they started.
If Cleopatra had won the war, the Roman Empire would have never materialized and the entire Roman republic would have been absorbed into her Ptolmic Kingdom.
If this were to have taken place, her kingdom (now an empire in its own right) would have had a direct impact on the course that the rest of europe had taken throughout history.
Here we are in the US (1600+ years later). If the US were to have been built upon the foundation of the Ptolmic empire instead of the Roman one, we here in the US would probably have a monarch now (King, Queen, Rolay Family, and maybe even a Pharoh).
Who's to know for sure!
