      Learn about Cleopatra more. Look at her historical paintings and statues. What you both don’t know is that Cleopatra is that she was Grecko-Egyptian. She was born In Egypt and came from the Ptolemy lineage but she had pale Greece skin. Which actually made her quite beautiful with her dark hair and dark eyes to contrast. She could speak 9 languages fluently, and studied all sorts of subjects, of which was her favorite being cosmetic. She has a whole book of her cosmetic secrets and I wanna find it one day . -Anthropologist and Egyptologist

        Yeah yeah Cleo wasn’t fully black but she wasn’t all out white either. The whitewashing of history isn’t angering anymore, it;s boring.

          As another passionate historian I want to add, do not mix Ancient Egypt with rest of Africa. Ancient Egyptians were not black people, they might have been tan to some extent because of the hot climate by they weren’t black. Cleopatra especially, as Tori mentioned, was of a Greek descent so she was white.

            Ancient Egyptians weren’t black huh. That’s hilarious. If you were such a passionate historian you’d know that ancient Egyptians didn’t call themselves Egyptians.

        Only Greek? Is that the only part “they” told you or did Cleopatra herself tell you that? I’m the Queen of England, that’s right, I, the Queen…..I said it, so you have to believe me. But don’t take my word for it, ask “them”. If you use deductive reasoning for me, maybe use it with all things. Question EVERYTHING “they” say.

      North Africans Aren’t black….Cleopatra came from the line of rulers left from Alexanders empire. she was Greek….very Greek. (royalty even married only their family to keep the royal line pure.) It has nothing to do with racism. It simply is. In Sub Sahara and southward, the native peoples are black. In the north, they are white. Thats’ why on a racial census they consider white people to be anyone with roots from “Europe, North Africa, or the Middle East”

        My parents are from Libya and you are very wrong Marta, is North African folks do identify with being African or have black blood if you will. It seems as if you are trying to divide us North Africans based on black or light skin tones? As you must know us Africans come in all shapes and all skin tones..

        That’s is a load of b****** , white is considered from Europe and Middle East is Arab. Ancient Egyptians were definitely a lot ‘darker’ in recent times there has been a lot mixing with Arabs who migrated to Egypt or North Africa and throughout the ages tribes or Nomadic people integrating, that is why nowadays they’re ‘whiter’ however that doesn’t make you not from Africa based on your skin tone. I mean North Africa is one of the hottest part of Africa. However I do agree on the basis that Cleopatra was Greek though no one was alive to witness her true features or to decide whether her heritage was purely Greek or whatever.

      I’m sorry but even though Egypt is in Africa, why do we forget that they don’t look 100% like us sub-saharan? They might have had darker skin from others like us, but their hair, their bone structure, a lot of their looks come from middle easterns. It was their relatives who migrated into Africa, Northern Africa. Even if you wanna say “they were black before the migration” well I won’t argue with that. But some pharaohs, especially Cleopatras family, was sent from a European culture to rule in another land. She was so Greek that though she did learn Egyptian, she refused to acknowledge any language but Greek. I have no problem with the middle easterns making their way into Africa. They were trying to get away from something. Some of them may have even taken over and started ruling as pharaohs. What I don’t like is when Europeans through out history have oppressed people into believing they are apart of our culture. They weren’t. They ruined our culture.

      Let’s just be clear. caucasian or “white” people are from the Mt. Caucaus mountains in Europe. Africans or ” black” people are from the continent of Africa. Every person has a country of origin. Egypt is one of many countries on the African continent. Cleopatra was born in Egypt. Therefore, she is African. Some of these convoluted comments just goes to show that Europeans have historically and continue to steal and exploit the African and African/American ways of life. Africa is known as the cradle of civilization. Everything from fashion, to greetings, to beauty, to medicine, embalming, agriculture, food, natural facial features and bodies and everything in between comes from the motherland-Africa. The” White ” Cleopatra is just another fairy tale created by Europeans, just like Santa Claus, the Easter bunny and the tooth fairy. Those characters are fictional and so is the “White” Cleopatra which perpetuates THEIR standard of beauty. Knowledge is power! Know accurate nonfictional history.

    Why does everyone need to make everything about race? She probably used those pictures of takes on Cleopatra because those are the most accessible being that most of them are fromm movies. Just because there aren’t many pictures of black takes on Cleopatra doesn’t mean they want to whitewash history or that ten are racist.

    Not all Egyptian are black the north people are white like Italian people . As you know she was very beautiful that is why Julius Ceaser lovers heels and after his death Antonyo loved her. Sheikspear wrote his play about them “Atony and Caleopatra.

    All I know is, if Cleopatra was so beautiful…she had to have come from African ancestry. Which is why Antony loved her so, (those of African descent take exotic beauty to another level), that and of course Antony being white, well….white men have a history of lusting after black women to the point of rape. Either way, the so called “historians”, really crack me up, trying to change history and nature itself, fleeing all common sense, to make this woman white. Smh, tisk, tisk, tisk, shame on you for backing up such fallacies.

    Actually, I’ve read that Cleopatra was not particularly beautiful, but rather her quality was that she was extremely sensual. No doubt she mastered the arts of cosmetics and skincare as well as seduction.

    Unfortunately for everyone who looked at this website in the hopes that they could be as “beautiful” as Cleopatra. Hate to tell you this but she is not as beautiful as you think. Now before you ask me how I know, go to google images and search Cleopatra on a egyptien coin and there you will find a life like picture of her. They had to put her real face in the coin so people knew it was the real currency. Now that you’ve seen that picture its safe to say that yes, she might of been pretty for that time period. But the beauty of one century is different from the other and if she where to be here in 2016 people would call her ugly. These tips do work for better skin etc but please dont let movies from Hollywood convince you that she looked like Angelina Jolie.

      Angelina Jolie is anorexic and has hi shapeless huge lips that cover most of her face. She is not beautiful. Monica Bellucci on the other hand is mind-blowing

    I don’t know, I’m kind of having fun watching people nitpick tangent topics.

    It would be nice to have money to blow on raw milk to bathe in

    Also, anybody know of a good place to buy rosewater? Or how to make?

    Why is there so much emphasis on Cleopatra being white? Does it even matter if she was Greek,Indian,BLACK!!! or Chinese? What difference does it make? Beauty has no race, there are very beautiful white people and very beautiful black people and then you get the ugly ones, white and black. So……..? Lets get back to the beauty secrets.
