My Ancient Egyptian Roots – Cleopatra
Hey Boys and Gals,
I have always wondered where my seduction powers and super confidence and self-esteem comes from, it come from Cleopatra one of the ancient Egyptian – most powerful female queens… 🙂 So today I wanted to educated you a little bit about Cleopatra.. My rolemodel 😉
One of my biggest interests is reading about Egyptian history! I have read the story about Cleopatra many times in many different books, there are endless storys about her. She was a powerful, interesting, manipulative and extremely smart woman.. She spoke 9 different languages fluently and she used it to manipulative men and rule Egypt. She was very smart and always got what she wanted by tricking powerful rules into – falling in love with her.
She was not beautiful, the Egyptians honored her life and therefore they would paint her like she was the most beautiful woman on earth. But the truth is Cleopatra was not beautiful, her looks where average, if you read the history books, you will find out. Her seductive and manipulative powers where so strong – she would seduce any man she wanted and that made her even more interesting. Why? Because it is not difficult to seduce a man if you are beautiful. The challenge is to seduce Kings and Powerful rules if your looks are nothing special. Her personality brains and passion must have been very intriguing.
Below you can read a tiny bit about Cleopatra and her story!! I love ancient Egyptian history, the women at that time had so much power, mystic and passion. They where sexual creatures and used it to their advantage, they seduced men and usually got what they wanted. Egyptians have not always been muslims, they worshipped many different Gods in the ancient times. They respected their women and their Gods. Woman had a very important place in the ancient Egyptian society. Sex and passion was a huge part of their culture and it was out in the open. The ancient Egyptian women did not cover their body, or faces. They would dance, sing and show themselves in amazing seductive costumes and outfitts decorated with lucrative jewelry and beautiful make up.
That is why I feel my Egyptian half must come from the ancient Egyptian’s – My personality is very similar to the ancient Egyptian women. ;)..
Cleopatra VII ruled ancient Egypt as co-regent (first with her two younger brothers and then with her son) for almost three decades. She became the last in a dynasty of Macedonian rulers founded by Ptolemy, who served as general under Alexander the Great during his conquest of Egypt in 332 B.C. Well-educated and clever, Cleopatra could speak various languages and served as the dominant ruler in all three of her co-regencies. Her romantic liaisons and military alliances with the Roman leaders Julius Caesar and Mark Antony, as well as her supposed exotic beauty and powers of seduction, earned her an enduring place in history and popular myth.
About Cleopatras Looks and Personality 😉
Dio tells us that Cleopatra had ‘a most delicious voice and a knowledge of how to make herself agreeable to everyone.” Likewise, Plutarch states that conversation with Cleopatra “had an irresistible charm, and her presence, combined with the persuasiveness of her discourse and the character which was somehow diffused about her behaviour towards others, had something stimulating about it.” He wrote that “there was sweetness also in the tones of her voice; and her tongue, like an instrument of many strings, she could readily turn to whatever language she pleased.”
The message is clear: Cleopatra’s allure had little to do with her physical appearance and a lot to do with her intellect, character and, apparently, the tone of her voice. When you consider how deeply involved both Caesar and Antony became with her, it is obvious that there must have been something more at play than just a sexy young body. After all, both were notorious womanisers and would surely not have fallen for Cleopatra on the basis of sex alone.
It seems likely that Cleopatra’s physical appearance was not more or less attractive than the next woman, yet through her wit, charm and daring she captivated not only two of the most powerful men of the ancient world, but the collective imagination of the entire world for all centuries that followed. That the most renowned beauty in human history was beautiful in character more so than in appearance could be an important lesson for our modern fixation on the purely physical.
