Product Overview

Rome in all her glory meets the splendor of ancient Egypt Caesarion was seen by some as the hope of Rome, by others as the folly of Julius Caesar's lust for the foreigner, Cleopatra. What might history have been like had Caesarion survived assassination and gone underground to hide his identity? Penniless and suffering from epileptic seizures, Caesarion changes his name. Befriended by an Egyptian farmer, Caesarion helps the farmer and his family break into the Greek-dominated Red Sea trade. As Caesarion gets to know this lower-class family he originally sneered at, he loses his veneer of noble snobbery and realizes that his secret identity is putting the people he's come to love in danger.

From the Publisher
Annotation The son of the title is Caesarion, the son Cleopatra had with Julius Caesar--maybe. The boy is kidnapped when Caesar's Roman son, Octavian, conquers Egypt, but he escapes, ending up in the caravan of a merchant. The man's daughter falls in love with Caesarion, and it takes a lot of time and incident before he is able to transcend his privileged trappings and relate to a commoner. In the end, the author creates a meeting between Caesarion and Octavian that never took place, but that provides a rip-roaring finale.
Editors Note The son of Julius Caesar and Cleopatra, the fabled Queen of Egypt, Caesarion escapes the assassination plot hatched by Octavius, the new ruler of Rome, and goes underground to hide his identity, journeying from a life of privilege to an existence filled with danger, poverty, and humiliation.
