I think I know a great deal about Cleopatra VII. But there is always more to learn. I thought Cleopatra would be a good topic for discussion. Cleopatra was actually of Macedonian decent, not Egyptian (Due to Alexander the Great). Her name means "glory of the father" but of course there were many Cleopatra's before her. The rulers of this time were out for blood when it came to who sat on the throne of Egypt. As an adult Cleopatra spoke 9 languages: Aramaic, Ethiopic, Latin, Syrian, Hebrew, Troglodyte, Roman, Greek, and Egyptian. She was a mistress to Julius Caesar and gave him his only blood son. (Octavian being a great nephew). Then there is the giant sequence of events I could talk about for hours:Marcus Antonius and Cleopatra VII but I'm tired of typing for know. I thought this would be a good topic for discussion and would like to know any cool facts about Cleopatra that I can. Thanks for reading! Smile
