Mark Antony (Triumvir and Imperator, committed suicide 30 BC)

Marcus Antonius was born in 83 BC. One of Caesar's most trusted lieutenants. Following Caesar's invasion of Italy, Antony was given supreme command of the country during Caesar's absences. After Caesar's murder he assembled an impressive army which overwhelmed his opponents, Brutus and Cassius. Antony and Octavian, together with M. Aemilius Lepidus, exercised supreme power by 43 BC. His close association with Queen Cleopatra of Egypt, by whom he had three children, undermined much of his support. He was defeated at the naval battle of Actium in September 31 BC, by the forces of Octavian and Agrippa. Antony and Cleopatra escaped to Egypt, where they committed suicide at Alexandria the following year after learning of an invasion.
