When reading this book it uickly became clear to me that the author Julia Samson is enthusiastic about Nefertiti than Cleopatra the section about Neferti take up almost 70 % of the book It also seems to be a bit of an advertisement for the museum where Samson works; the Petrie Museum in London There were some clear differences between the writing in the two parts The Nefertiti part is well explained colourful and with a lot of examples figures and plates used to support Samsons hypothesis' whereas the Cleopatra is narrative and with practically only Shakespeare as a source This is partly a testament to what I wrote before about Samson's main focus but also to the general sources we have about the two different ueens born about 1000 years apart From the time and life of Nefertiti our sources are mainly archeological and therefore open for interpretation at least open that written accounts from Cleopatra's time It must also be noted that some of things that Samson writes as truths have later been widely disputed like her Nefertiti as Smenkhkare theory So while reading this book it is wise to always keep in mind that it is almost 30 years old; new evidence and new theories have emerged
