The Destiny of Rome (2011): Part 02 – Octavian, Antony, and Cleopatra


History Documentary hosted by Patrizia Pierangeli, published by ZED in 2011.


Filmed entirely using CGI, the series stays as close as possible to historical reality, with characters speaking in Latin and Greek. The Destiny of Rome takes us to the heart of Ancient Rome with its civil wars, and traces the careers of two exceptional leaders: Marc Antony and Octavian. From the assassination of Julius Caesar to Octavian’s triumph over Antony and Cleopatra, this legendary story is told through these two spectacular battles.

Part 02: Octavian, Antony, and Cleopatra

After Caesar, Antony and Octavian divided the empire for a time. But there could only be one successor to Caesar. Ten years later, the supreme strategist Octavian waged a critical naval battle, the Battle of Actium, against his former ally, Antony, who now had the backing of Cleopatra.
