Editor says,  In our history, the conspiracy succeeded: Caesar was stabbed to death on the floor of the Roman Senate.
 And who actually did, in our history.
 Yes, the famous Cleopatra was actually only one of a number of Egyptian queens to bear that name.
 Murdered by Octavian/Augustus in our history.
 In our history, Caesar never acknowledged Caesarion as his son, and there remains some doubt as to whether he actually was.
 In our history, of course, Cleopatra died August 12, 30 B.C., a suicide to avoid an unpleasant death at the hands of Octavian. Upon her death, Caesarion became sole pharaoh, but ruled Egypt for a mere eighteen days before he, too, was killed.
 In our timeline, Octavian assumed the name of Augustus and was the first Roman ruler to be declared divine. Editorial comments are entered in [light green] typeface.
