Weird Things You Didn’t Know About Cleopatra

More than 1,500 years before the reign of Elizabeth I of England, Cleopatra proved that women were capable of ruling nations, and that they could do it with intelligence, grace, and sometimes brutality. But much of what we know about the queen of the Nile comes from history that has been fictionalized, re-fictionalized, and then fictionalized some more, so much that the made-up stuff is sometimes better-known than the facts and the facts themselves are kind of surprising…

    Four political gain Cleopatra had been murdered for political favor they" her enemy" made up the story she off herself .
    Yes fragrance can be persuasive this is why they pump fragrance out at Walt Disney parks. Don't forget about Queen Nefertiti. . Nothing new Under the Sun Idols famous people of today's still Adorn themselves with distracting fashions perfumes and many people worship them as God's today. Leaders rulers political party still act like this today it wasn't just the Romans and Cleopatra. 😉

    cleopatra was macedonian so yes she was white. There is enough art that has been proven to be unaltered for us to know this, we have several records stating she was even from ptolemies family, who were all rich purist macedonians. they didnt breed with nonwhites famously you dumb shits.

    i mean, I'm not black or white but all the people who say she white in the comments are actually providing evidence and reason/logic to their argument whilst people who think she's black are just saying that she was and then accusing people of whitewashing things and being a supremacist

    It's funny how she is always portrayed as this great powerful "female" ruler even though she is the one who lost Egypt to their enemy. She must not have been that great and powerful. Evil b**

    Cleopatra was from a Macedonian Greek dynasty that was purposefully inbred because they thought that other races were inferior but that won't stop some flat-earth morons from trying to tell you she was secretly somehow from Wakanda or some shit.

    Trying to talk history with racial essentialists (Eurocentric or Afrocentric) is a loosing battle. Ignore these people.
