Welcome to the newest edition of the Kings and Generals! In this video we are going to cover the Final war of the Roman Republic between general Mark Antony (Marcus Antonius) and queen of Egypt Cleopatra on one side and Gaius Octavian (Octavius) Caesar on the other. This war ended the republic and made Octavian the first emperor of Rome. The naval battle of Actium (31 BC) was central in this conflict – it was one of the largest naval engagements of the ancient times and probably one of the most decisive.
