Mark Antony, Roman politician and general, was an ally of Julius Caesar and the main rival of his successor Octavian (later Augustus). The passing of power between the three men led to Rome’s transition from a republic to an empire. Antony’s romantic and political alliance with Egyptian queen Cleopatra became his downfall.
