Breaking NEWS Has Always Been Even Before The Birth Of Jesus Christ
In the world of today, if you are not making news, then you are reading news or best doing both
Many people strive to be the first, the first to break news, the first to read the news, listen to the news, watch video clips, and many more. People love making history or recreating history, most importantly when the breaking news is all about Power and more wealth
But how about if we tells you that breaking news did not start today, hunger for power and wealth did not just start with the later day politicians, not in the 21st century but has been with the world long before the birth of Jesus Christ the Christian God
We often think breaking news started with us right but no, it has been even before time immemorial. But, one of the biggest breaking news in the world happened 46 years before the birth of Jesus Christ more than 2000+ years ago when a highly ambitious woman named Cleopatra
Cleopatra considered to be the most beautiful woman in the world, paid a ‘shocking’ visit to Julius Caesar, then the Consul of Rome, the most advanced Republic in the world then, before Caesar appointed himself “a dictator.
Cleopatra was not only beautiful, but she was also indeed the definition of beauty, God, and god’s craftmanship as was reported, she was endowed with power beauty hardly seen in our latter-day generation
She was smart, intellectual, and above all the Queen of Egypt after conniving with Caesar to eliminate her brother and install her as Queen.
No one had ever seen anything like it in Rome, she was too ambitious of getting her blood brother killed and been installed as the Queen, her Majesty
Women were not Queens or as powerful, or even, as rich and as influential. Cleopatra’s visit was a bombshell. Besides, she did not just come to Rome with her beauty and brain and influence, she came to tell Caesar that the last time they had sex, she got pregnant and had brought his son who was by then 1-year-old to Caesar.
It was a BIG shocking news in the entire Rome and Egypt. Caesar had lost his only child and grandchild and was thinking of grooming someone else for the Republic when Cleopatra stormed Rome and unleashed the breaking news that Caesar had a true heir.
The unknown son was the greatest breaking news of that time and Caesar and the entire room was shocked, people were motionless
With his hair, Caesar then decided to appoint himself a dictator, first for ten years, then for life, calculating that only his family will rule Rome.
He soon became unpopular with the senators who stabbed him to death about 23 times. His assassination led to terrible unrest and the collapse of the Republic and the beginning of the Roman empire with an emperor
Which eventually led to dictatorship and the collapse of the Roman empire. After Caesar was brutally assassinated, Cleopatra married Mark Anthony who was a close ally to Caesar.
Both Cleopatra and Anthony committed double suicide in Alexandria, Egypt when war broke out between Egypt and Rome and they were about to be captured.
Cleopatra’s son with Julius Caesar, named Ptolemy Philopator Philopator Caesar, ruled Egypt for just two weeks before he too was assassinated at the age of 17.
Anyway, Cleopatra was so next level that there has rarely been another woman as beautiful, ambitious, smart, and influential as Cleopatra was.
Even to this day, there are still books written about Cleopatra and her visit to Rome. It was huge, IT WAS THE GREATEST BREAKING NEWS THAT HAS lived ahead of time, It was the biggest BREAKING news of their time, with millions of books and reports about the events.
