Wasnt pale as snow as you see in whitewashed films and very unlikely to look modern day African - but regarding power you gotta do what you gotta do...

Brother/sisters in line to the throne before her... eeek , incest to solidify claims - something tells me family units were a smidge more complicated lol

(Original post by 13sana)
History is full of powerful men who were oppressive and degrading to women, therefore, Cleopatra was most likely a powerful woman of a darker skin tone who had myths made up about her being sexually promiscuous as it takes the attention away from her many achievements.
I find this hilarious. Your most needed, vital comment is established upon the premise of what 'most likely' was. Hilarious!

As the Queen of Egypt she started pretty close to the top. She didn't have far to go. It's not like she started as a slave in a modest artisan's villa in some provincial Roman town.
