an important factual presentation by me
Cleopatra was a descendant of Ptolomey, a Greek general of Alexander the Great, who got his slice of the pie when Alexander died. She probably tanned just fine, but the Greeks who took over Egypt took up the tradition of incest that the pharaohs they kicked out had had for a couple thousand years. Her skin was probably an olive tone at the darkest. A lot paler than the actual African Egyptians she ruled over.
A probably factual text reply by me.
