122 - Cleopatra: Queen. Seductress. Product Of SO MUCH INCEST!
Whopper of a tale for you today. Battles, incest, murder, betrayal, and more! Born in 69 BCE, Cleopatra VII was part of the Macedonian dynasty that took over rule of Egypt in the late 4th century B.C. A dynasty full of a PREPOSTEROUS amount of incest and murder. SO much. During her reign, she forged political alliances and became romantically involved with Roman military leaders Julius Caesar and Mark Antony - bearing sons for month men. She could've ended up ruling Rome. Instead Rome pushed her to her death in 30 BCE.Timesuck is brought to you by Leesa!
