Queen of Kings by Maria Dahvana Headley was a book about the immortal life of Her Majesty Queen Cleopatra. The book is mostly historically accurate but involves many Egyptian and Roman gods.

Cleopatra was thirty-nine when she died in 30 BC. She’d been a queen for twenty two years and was buried with her lover, Antony. Her high ambitions together with her arrogance ruined Egypt’s future prospects of independence. While she might have of achieved client status for Egypt within the Roman Empire, her utter failure condemned her.
The Roman needs the Egyptian queen in his war against the Parthian Empire, and returns the rule of old Ptolemaic territories to her. 41. an elaborate coronation ceremony in which Caesarion and Alexander Helios were named King of Kings and their mother Cleopatra VII was named Queen of Kings, took place in the Egyptian capital. 31 BCE: Mark Antony and Cleopatra move to Greece, where they are.
Cleopatra VII is usually just known as Cleopatra, though she was the seventh royal Egyptian ruler to bear the name Cleopatra. She was the last of the Ptolemy dynasty to rule Egypt. She, like many other Ptolemy rulers, first married one brother and then, on his death, another.

Basically, Queen of Kings is a fantasy novel, examining what might have happened if Cleopatra hadn't died alongside Mark Antony, but became immortal in the process of trying to save him and her country. It's a fabulously gripping read, and a spactacular fantasy, written in easy, flowing prose.
