The romance between Mark Antony and Cleopatra is legendary and ended in 30 BCE with the star-crossed lovers committing joint suicide to avoid capture by their enemies. In 41 BCE, Antony, joint leader of the Roman Empire, summoned Cleopatra for a meet to discuss her supplying funds for a war he wanted to wage with the Parthian Empire (North-Eastern Iran).
