Queen Cleopatra VII dressed as a Pharaoh

In 32 BCE, Octavian declared war on Cleopatra alone. However, ‘the lovers of the Nile’ joined forces. During the naval Battle of Actium, the Queen withdrew her fleet, taking Mark Anthony with her as she fled. Shortly afterwards, Mark Anthony committed suicide. According to tradition, Cleopatra killed herself with an asp bite.
 
After her death in 30 BCE, Egypt became a Roman province and the Ptolemaic dynasty lost its position as the 'King of the South’. - Daniel 11:5-19
