What did Cleopatra Look Like? Facial Reconstructions Revealed, with History.
I'm an artist that uses photoshop to bring old images and statues into the modern day. Let’s talk about Cleopatra, one of the most enigmatic figures of ancient history. She was the first Ptolemaic ruler of Egypt to even speak the Egyptian language, and she routinely outwitted her foes. She seduced two powerful Romans. But what did she look like? What did she do? What ethnicity was Cleopatra? Let’s talk the history & appearance of Cleopatra, now.
Women have been coloring their hair with henna for thousands of years, so Cleopatra could have colored her brunette locks red on occasions. I agree with many other viewers that her redheaded depictions are stunning.
CLEOPATRA: THE EXHIBITION - CLOSED
The most famous woman(Cleopatra) in Egyptian History, was actually descended from A GREEK DYNASTY, The Ptolemies ..." 00:58 - "...The First Ptolemy was the one of the Generals of Alexander the Great took power three hundred years before Cleopatra was born…" 01:06 -
"... She encouraged scholarship and learning, wrote books and was the first Ptolemy of Pharaoh to speak Egyptian as well as GREEK ..." 01:27
Historical accuracy is not whitewashing. After the death of Alexander the Great, Egypt was under the rule of the Ptolemaic Dynasty, who were Greek-Macedonian, and Cleopatra was a direct descendant of Ptolemy I. She was even named after Alexander's younger sister, Cleopatra I.
Oh, there were darker skinned Egyptians, but there were also the Nubians, who were at war with the Egyptians. Go look it up. Egyptians enslaved Nubians and Nubians later invaded Egypt and ruled over it, hence the 20 or so dark-skinned Egyptian Pharaohs mentioned by Herodotus. But you sound like the one who's desperate. Egyptians haven't changed much in 5000 years according to DNA testing. And Cleopatra was Greek-Macedonian, so deal with it.

Taken from Stormfront, Cleopatra was white
According to the most reliable source Cleopatra was 3/4 Macedonian and possibley 1/4 Egyptian. Macedonians were a blond haired blue eyed people back then(I don't know about now). Alexander the Great had blond hair and blue eyes. If she was 1/4 Egyptian we don't know what that was but I doubt that it was black. There were many white Egyptians back then too. But anyway those that claim she was black are full of baloney. OUPblog » Blog Archive » Cleopatra
