Irreverent, inspirational, and a visual delight, What Would Cleopatra Do? shares the wisdom and advice passed down from Cleopatra, Queen Victoria, Dorothy Parker, and forty-seven other heroines from past eras on how to handle an array of common problems women have encountered throughout history and still face today. What Would Cleopatra Do? tackles issues by reminding us of inspiring feminists from the past, telling their stories with warmth, humor, and verve. From sticking up for yourself, improving body image, deciding whether to have children, finding a mentor, getting dumped, feeling like an imposter, being unattractive, and dealing with gossip, we can learn a lot by reading motivational stories of heroic women who, living in much tougher times through history, took control of their own destinies and made life work for them. Here are Cleopatra’s thoughts on sibling rivalry, Mae West on positive body image, Frida Kahlo on finding your style, Catherine the Great on dealing with gossip, Agatha Christie on getting dumped, Hedy Lamarr on being underestimated—to list only a few—as well as others who address dilemmas including career-planning, female friendship, loneliness, financial management, and political engagement. Featuring whimsical illustrations by L.A.-based artist Bijou Karman, What Would Cleopatra Do? is a distinctive, witty, and gift-worthy tribute to history’s outstanding women.

The Romans conquered Gaul (modern France and Belgium) in seven years but it took them seventy-seven years to incorporate two thirds of Britain into the empire. One reason it took so long is the revolt that cost seventy thousand lives, destroyed three major cities and required roughly eight thousand additional troops to make up losses and restore some semblance of order. The shock was intensified by learning that such a humiliation of Roman might had occurred at the hands of a woman. How could such things happen to the world’s only superpower? Seventeen years after the Romans invaded Britain, two figures stepped onto history ́s stage to join in mortal combat. One was Suetonius Paulinus, Rome ́s toughest general and the fifth governor of Britain. The other was a royal woman named Boudicca. Her kingdom dissolved on the death of her husband, her daughters raped and herself flogged in order to cow the Britons, Queen Boudicca gathered her armies and attacked. In a sweep that would have pleased General Patton, she annihilated a legion, destroyed Colchester, London and St Albans and threw the entire occupation of Britain into jeopardy. Then she faced the brutal Paulinus in a final battle and was defeated. Was she outclassed or betrayed? To answer this, Boudicca’s trail is followed as she develops from a young warrior into an immortal Queen-general. As she grows into the role of Arviragus (Commander) of the British armies, she has to deal not only with Roman invaders but also with the treacherous ambitions of her rival, sexy Queen Cartimandua, who loves to scramble men’s brains and aims to get control of Rome’s legions by seducing Rome’s governors. She also has to deal with another invasion by Christian missionaries who spread the disruptive message of peace and love among the armies of both sides. Elsa, the Christian healer whom Boudicca loves, fights her own war against religious hypocrisy, while the evil Druidess Morfudd and her servant the murderous Regan, scheme to gain control over the rival churches being formed to corral Christian converts. As for the men in her life, the elderly Prasu is her legal husband but her true lover is the erratic and hot-tempered Venutius who loves Boudicca but marries Cartimandua and is later discarded by Cartimandua in favor of his servant Velocatus. Owain is a high-ranking Druid who falls victim to Morfudd’s sexual wiles, tries to dragoon the Christians into fighting a holy war against the Romans and offers advice to Paul during a visit to Corinth. Ingenius is a brilliant artisan who tries to become rich by aligning himself with Seneca and Procurator Catus, finally redeeming himself by developing the chariots that break up the Roman legions. Atak, an ex Roman auxiliary commander is Boudicca ́s faithful adviser, who stays with her to the bitter end even though his most critical advice - not to ally herself with Cartimandua in the final battle - is ignored.

This story is a blend of the available historical facts concerning the famed Iceni Queen, with the mythology in Britain at the beginning of the first millennium. It begins four years before the Claudian invasion of Britain, when Boudicca was probably in her early teens, and follows her life through her early training, her marriage to King Prasutagus with whom she has two daughters, and her increasing power with Iceni tribe. The story ends with her death in 61 AD. In the years after the invasion, the victorious Romans become greedy and when the Prasutagus dies, Boudicca is scourged. In the resulting revolt, she leads an army that slaughters all who side with the Romans. In her rampage she very nearly defeats the Roman army, but when victory escapes her, she commits suicide. While allegory, fantasy and mysticism are employed, the story remains true to the mores, customs and beliefs of the Celts, as nearly as knowledge permits. Many of the characters, such as Prasutagus, Caratacus, Togodumnus, Cunobelinos, The Roman leaders and the Roman procurator are documented historical figures who were involved in the four hundred year reign of the Romans.

"This is the first book to concentrate exclusively on texts about Boudica and to cover the full chronological range from the first surviving historical account by Tacitus in AD 98 to the triumphant conclusion of Manda Scott's series of novels in 2006. All our knowledge of the ancient British queen Boudica, and her ferocious yet ultimately unsuccessful rebellion against the Romans, is derived from a few accounts in ancient Greek and Latin. Yet they have inspired a flood of history, fictional narrative, drama, and poetry, and there is no indication that the process has ended. This study illuminates and celebrates the rich variety generated by the creative tensions between writers' knowledge and their individual tastes, beliefs, and political or artistic aims and considers whether Boudica's textual metamorphoses are without limits or variations on a distinctive theme bounded by a flexible yet enduring narrative pattern." --Book Jacket.
