Cleopatra was born around 69 BC. Her father Ptolemy XII died (in 51 BC) when she was 18, leaving Cleopatra and her brother Ptolemy XIII as rulers. As it happened at that time, Cleopatra married her brother and ruled Egypt.
However, Ptolemy soon banished Cleopatra, leaving her alone. In the year 48 BC. BC, the Roman Empire was in a civil war between Julius Caesar and Pompey. When Pompey fled to Alexandria, the capital of Egypt, he was killed by Ptolemy.
Ptolemy hoped to win Caesar’s favor, but when Caesar arrived in Alexandria, he was angered by the murder of a foreigner who killed a Roman ambassador.
Abbott graduated from Bowdoin College in 1820. At some point in his life, he is said to have added a second “t” to his surname, to avoid being “Jacob Abbot the 3rd” (although (the book says he wasn’t).actually started signing his name with two t’s until he many years later).
Abbott studied at Andover Theological Seminary in 1821, 1822, and 1824. He taught at Portland Academy and then at Amherst College the following year.
