Events and trendsEdit
- Octavian defeats Mark Antony and Cleopatra VII of Egypt at the Battle of Actium (September 2, 31 BC). On August, 30 BC the victor captures Alexandria. Marcus Antonius and Cleopatra commit suicide, and their young children are raised as Romans, but her son with Julius Caesar, co-ruler Ptolemy XV Caesarion, is executed. Egypt is annexed to the Roman Republic, and Octavianus becomes the undisputed ruler of Rome and her subjects. This would soon lead to the creation of the Roman Empire.
