Where did the aphorism 'three can keep a secret if two of them are dead' originate?

Benjamin Franklin, in "Poor Richard's Almanac" and it means that you can trust no one but your self with your own tell nobody -------------- In volume four of The history of the life and times of Cardinal Wolsey Prime Minister to King Henry VIII by George Cavendish, published by Joseph Grove in 1744, King Henry VIII is quoted as saying essentially the same thing: "three can keep Counsel if two be away ; and, if I knew my Cap was privy to my Counsel, I would cast it into the Fire, and burn it" Since Henry predates Franklin by at least a couple hundred years, the attribution to him indicates that the saying was current long before Ben was born. Even the mention of this saying in a book published in 1744 casts doubt on it being original to Franklin.

Who did Cleopatra marry and why?

Ptolemy XII died in March 51 BC, thus by his will making the 18-year-old Cleopatra and her brother, the 12-year-old Ptolemy XIII joint monarchs. The first three years of their reign were difficult, due to economic difficulties, famine, deficient floods of the Nile, and political conflicts. Although Cleopatra was married to her young brother, she quickly showed indications that she had no intentions of sharing power with him. She did not marry her lover Ceasar. n 42 BC, Mark Antony, one of the triumvirs who ruled Rome in the power vacuum following Caesar's death, summoned Cleopatra to meet him in Tarsus to answer questions about her loyalty. Cleopatra arrived in great state, and so charmed Antony that he chose to spend the winter of 41 BC-40 BC with her in Alexandria. On 25 December 40 BC she gave birth to two children Alexander Helios and Cleopatra Selene II. Four years later in 37 BC, Antony visited Alexandria again en route to make war with the Parthians. He renewed his relationship with Cleopatra, and from this point on Alexandria would be his home. He married Cleopatra according to the Egyptian rite (a letter quoted in Suetonius suggests this), although he was at the time married to Octavia Minor, sister of his fellow triumvir Octavian. He and Cleopatra had another child, Ptolemy Philadelphus.
