    @2000saesthetics Cleopatra VII was of the Ptolemaic dynasty, therefore making her Greek. Alexander the Great of Macedonia conquered Egypt shortly before his death in 323 BCE, and the Egyptian portion of his empire was given to his general Ptolemy. Anybody after Ptolemy's rule was Greek/Macedonian. After Cleopatra's suicide in 30 BCE, Egypt was conquered by the Romans under Augustus so leaders after Cleo were Roman. While Cleo was Egyptian in terms of nationality, ethnically she was Greek/Macedonian and therefore white. Mosaic artwork, coinage and sculptures made during her reign prove this as fact.

    @makaila8674 she didn't once say it was true to origin because her look is INSPIRED by Cleopatra meaning aspects are taken and not entirely copied. She can wear whatever colour contacts she wants because she never claimed that this was a true replication of Cleopatra.

    @dazeblaze Cleopatra was of the Ptolemaic dynasty, which was Greek, and therefore Cleo was white. Alexander the Great conquered Egypt shortly before his death in 323 BCE. When he died, Ptolemy I Soter, a GREEK general took over Egypt. From then onwards, his descendants continued to rule Egypt and since inbreeding was custom in Egypt among pharaohs of ALL dynasties, the Ptolemies, and therefore Cleo remained Greek. Following Cleo's suicide in 30 BCE, the Roman emperor Augustus conquered Egypt, and therefore all pharaohs from 323 BCE onwards were white. This is a fairly accurate representation (eye colour is questionable), and this can be proved by looking at sculptures, mosaic artwork and coinage made during Cleo's reign. Cleo is Egyptian in terms of nationality, but she is ethnically Greek. Now if this we're representing your average Egyptian, then this would not be accurate and Egyptians during her reign were either mixed (due to Greek and early Roman colonization) or were ethnically black. But this is Cleopatra, there is no whitewashing in this video whatsoever. I have studied Classical civilizations, ie. Rome, Greece and Egypt so I am very knowledgable on the subject. Just an FYI.

I'm sorry if you took it as I was actually offended. As long as someone is not hurting themselves or anybody else, they should do what they like.

    @kaniya123_ She is Greek. Are you stupid as fuck? I think you are. While she was born in Egypt and her NATIONALITY is Egyptian, ETHNICALLY she is GREEK. She is a DIRECT descendant of Ptolemy I Soter, a Greek general of Alexander the Great who COLONIZED Egypt. All Pharoahs after 323 BCE were white and either of GREEK (until Cleopatra) or ROMAN origin. Henceforth she was WHITE. But continue to make yourself look stupid as fuck when the archaeological evidence, as well as primary sources prove you WRONG. You clearly don't know how to do research, you imbecile.

    @xxforever_kendraxx Um no? All archaeological evidence/primary points to her being fully Greek. Good try though. Do your research. I've studied Classical civilizations for 6 years, and that includes extensive research on Cleopatra.

    @xteresac I had already done a fully analyzation ...like two years ago then I looked for new updated data before I chose to state facts on your comment . The bones of her sister found in turkey were observed and turns out her , her sister and mother were of African decent ... they created a 3D model of what she looked like and she was of African decent and wore cornrows ...also in tons of renaissance art she was depicted as being of darker tones referred to as "negress" and their art was based on findings before that time ... so uh yes I did my research have been for a while now...

    @xxforever_kendraxx I'm not debating with you but wanted to point out that you are right and wrong. She is of Egyptian descent and probably wore cornrows, but she is also heavily Macedonian. So she would be biracial and neither dark nor light. Her father was Greek and her mother was Egyptian. So yes she is from Egyptian descent, but Egyptians tend to label themselves as Arabian not African. While your research is correct, there are left-out facts. Her ethnicity is greatly debated upon, yet I believe the most clear answer is that she is a mix of races.

  32. 👑's profile photo
    👑

    @xxforever_kendraxx And yet, you are wrong since the sister you are talking about - Arsinoe IV was her half sister. Blood relation on her fathers side. They did not share the same mother, and hence the term HALF. But apparently you like to pick and choose what is valid in your research. Renaissance art is irrelevant as the renaissance was more than a millennium after Cleopatra's reign. Roman/Ptolemaic sources prove that she was white. Those sources are from her actual lifetime. Don't bring irrelevant sources when actual sources of the time prove otherwise. Again, don't argue with someone who has actually has a university degree in the subject.

  33. 👑's profile photo

    @itsmaddiewilson She also left out the fact that Arsinoe is her half sister, and while Arisnoe's mother was in fact either Nubian or Egyptian, they did not share that same mother.

  38. 's profile photo

    @xteresac First of all, quit being so condescending. Just because you claim to have a university degree, does not give you a right to assert yourself as right and think you are superior to others. As someone who is a historian and has studied in an accredited school for almost 6+ years, you do not represent the tone of University students. You are name calling, swearing and continuously arguing with others because they have another perspective. I have studied Cleopatra to a great depth and she is of Egyptian descent. Through no research has there been proven that she is Greek. Just because you assert yourself as someone advocating for white power, as you are doing, does not mean that your "facts" are true. I do not know where you got your sources from but they are incorrect. Jesus for example, through much research, has been discovered not to be a white man either. What I can take from your argument is that you have this stance of white dominance and because Cleopatra was a great figure of her time, you automatically argue with others over your naive belief that she is white. Not all great figures in humanity have been white. We all came genetically originated from Africa...

    @nononosayya Again, you're wrong. All archaeological evidence, as well as primary sources point to her being Greek. A simple, "was Cleopatra VII Greek?" search on google gives you a plethora of sources that prove this. The Ptolemies practiced incest, as did all other Egyptian dynasties to keep their bloodline PURE. This is an indisputable fact. How the fuck are you going to tell all Classicists (historians who studies Ancient Rome, Greece and Egypt) that they are wrong when all sources from the time of Cleo point to her, as well as her family members (born in wedlock and not to concubines) were Greek. She is a Ptolemy. The Ptolemies are Greek. She was Egyptian in terms of nationality. It is the same thing as someone being ethnically Italian, but are American due to getting their citizenship or being born in the US. Coinage for example that dates to Cleopatra's reign showcase her as being white, with a large hooked nose - something that is common in people who are Greek. It's only Afrocentrists who attempt to dispute this fact solely because her HALF sister's mother was in fact either Egyptian or Nubian. As I stated previously, she was blood related to Arsinoe through who father, who was GREEK. Cleo was however the first Ptolemy to completely embrace the Egyptian culture, and was the first to actually learn the Egyptian language among the many languages she spoke. But go ahead and make yourself look stupid by completely ignoring archaeological evidence and primary sources. I don't have a "naive" belief. I am stating FACTS. You on the other hand are twisting history in order to fit your Afrocentrist narrative.

    Lolll I loveee these arguments @xteresac @xxforever_kendraxx @nononosayya but interestingly none of you have actually complimented the girl who did this tutorial. Instead you bicker over who's right and wrong. When will we all just sit back and be able to embrace her beauty, the girl and Cleopatra, no matter if her race is debatable? The world may never know lol. She did a lovely job.

    @k_holtzclaw I know she did a lovely job, and it's pretty evident that she is taking inspiration from Liz Taylor's portrayal of Cleo. Other than the eye colour, since Liz had violet eyes, her look is pretty much identical. But people are claiming that this is whitewashing which it is absolutely not the case. Whitewashing is a serious problem and I absolutely agree with it being called out, but in this case it's not necessary to do so. That's what I take issue with.

    @joystarsx When you get someone who is white to play someone who isn't, even though there are a ton of great candidates of the same ethnic origin to play the role. Like for example, a white woman who is chosen to play Mulan over a woman who is actually ethnically Chinese. I hope that makes sense.
