There have been many women in the history of the world who have set an example of their rule. However, Egypt’s Cleopatra was the most powerful and most talked about even after leaving this world. Cleopatra was not only praised for her beauty during her reign but after her death, most people considered her famous for her beauty. It is different than Cleopatra is considered the mistress of unique beauty, but in reality, she was a far more intelligent and clever ruler. It was her sharp politics, the art of making contacts, and her ability to make frequent changes that made her the only female ruler of the ancient world.
Not only attractive, Cleopatra was very intelligent
There is not much historical evidence of where Cleopatro originally belonged and the views are divided. Most believe she was from Macedonia, while others say her roots were linked to Africa. Despite this, she established herself as the queen of Egypt. She was the first person to speak the Egyptian language in the Ptolemaic kingdom of which she became the last queen. Cleopatra was so well-loved by the intelligent, capable and attractive personality that she continued to be worshiped even after three centuries of death. Cleopatra never blindly followed the traditions but kept pace with the changes according to her needs. It is said that she used to dress like Goddess Isis and attend special ceremonies so that she can be considered as the natural entitled to rule. People used to get mesmerized by his manner of speech and speech. Her rule is proof that she was not only beautiful or attractive but was more clever than this.
When Julius Caesar was shocked
During that period, there was always a threat to power. In his own family, he had to avoid coup and foreign attack. In such a situation Cleopatra established strong ties with the mighty Roman rulers. Even in 49 BCE, he went to Syria and prepared an army. After returning to Egypt, he planned to challenge his brother and co-ruler, Pharaoh Tolmi XIII and met the great Julius Caesar for this. It is said that his servant Apollodoros hid him in a sheet and took him straight to Caesar. Caesar not only supported them but also became close to both of them.
No conspiracy to succeed
After this, Cleopatra removed her brother from power and sat on the throne herself. Sometime later in 47 BC, he and Caesar’s son Cesareon were born, who was to succeed him. After Caesar’s assassination in 44 BCE, Cleopatra did not allow her siblings to fulfill their dream of power. His younger brother Tolmi X1V is said to have mysteriously disappeared while his sister Arsino IV was killed by Mark Anthony’s men. Cleopatra continued to govern with Cesarean. When Antony was made the ruler of the eastern provinces of Rome, Cleopatra immediately established political connections with him.
Gold boat, silver paddle …
At the invitation of Antony, she went to Tarasu in 41 BCE, which is located in present-day Turkey. She is said to be dressed like Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of love, and arrived in a gold boat with purple sails and silver paddle. With the power of Anthony’s love, Cleopatra strengthened her control over the throne and kept Egypt free. Both of them had three children, whom Cleopatra later gave the reins of states other than Egypt so that their empire could be expanded further.
Did truth change after death?
However, after his death, his image was more popular than his rule. Octavian, the Roman rival of Antony, is said to have spread the propaganda against Cleopatra, stating that she was only beautiful and used to seduce others for her needs. For centuries, she was shown in literature as a woman who is still accepted as true. However, efforts are now being made to break this confusion. Extensive research and denied successes are being brought to the public.
