Most pharaoh-queens were named Cleopatra; however, when referenced, Cleopatra VII nearly always comes to mind. Modern day depictions of Cleopatra put a strong emphasis on her supposed beauty. Even Ancient Roman historians had much to say in this respect – “For she was a woman of surpassing beauty, and at that time, when she was in the prime of her youth, she was most striking; she also possessed a most charming voice and a knowledge of how to make herself agreeable with everyone.” However, while current standards of Cleopatra grasp onto these words and those alike, most end up missing the influential impact that Cleopatra played on the world’s stage.
