Mark Antony, a great soldier and, together with Octavius Caesar and Lepidus, one of the three rulers of Rome, is in Egypt, in love with its glamorous queen, Cleopatra. The death of his wife Fulvia and other events force him to return to Rome, where he promises to attend to his duties. He marries Caesar's sister Octavia to cement his friendship with Caesar, but cannot resist returning to Cleopatra. This leads to war. Antony's forces are defeated by Rome, and he blames Cleopatra for his failure. Terrified, she sends him news that she is dead and hides in a monument. Hearing the news, Antony stabs himself, and is taken, dying, to Cleopatra. After his death, refusing to give up to Rome, Cleopatra kills herself with a bite from a poisonous snake.
