Measurement Topic Focus: Leadership and how it relates to Conflict

It should have a variety of details that would be typical to a tabloid cover but must feature Cleopatra. Your work should reflect what kind of person she was, her efforts to gain leadership and what she accomplished as a leader.
Apart from that you have alot of flexibility with what you do. Have some fun with it, include as much detail as you can, make it colorful, funny, and put some thought and effort into it. Merge any Ancient Egyptian story into your work.
What does the story tell us about the relationship between sons and fathers?
What meaning is there behind flying too close to the sun and too close to the water?
