Summary
Caesar, in pursuit of Pompey, lands in Egypt, where Pompey's wife, Cornelia, and her son Sextus beg for reconciliation. Ptolemy greets him with the present of Pompey's head, an unwelcome gift. Cornelia is prevented from suicide by her would-be lover Curio and Sextus threatens vengeance. Cleopatra, meanwhile, plots to use Caesar in order to displace her brother Ptolemy. Achillas offers to kill Caesar and make Ptolemy king, if he may have Cornelia as a reward. Cleopatra disguises herself as one injured by Ptolemy and seeks Caesar's interest, while Cornelia and her son are taken prisoner by Ptolemy. Caesar and Cleopatra eventually come together, her identity now revealed, while Ptolemy presses his attentions on Cornelia. Caesar escapes, to avoid a planned attempt on his life. Cleopatra is taken prisoner by Ptolemy but Caesar, returning, promises to rescue both her and Cornelia, with the help of Sextus, who, in an assault on Ptolemy's palace, kills the despot. Caesar now allows Cleopatra the crown of Egypt, as queen and tributary of the Roman Empire
