Was Queen Cleopatra black or white? Is Adele James a extra correct illustration of the Egyptian Queen than Elizabeth Taylor? This isn’t the primary and received’t be the final debate over Cleopatra’s race however the quickly to be launched Netflix collection has angered the Egyptian authorities who’re saying it’s a falsification of Egyptian historical past.
In reality, Egyptians antiquities ministry went so far as publishing a prolonged assertion to verify Cleopatra’s pores and skin color and facial options, and reassure that she had “white pores and skin and Hellenistic traits”.
I didn’t know Cleopatra’s race was such a heated subject however the debate has been ongoing for many years apparently. Nonetheless I don’t perceive the Egyptian authorities’ response as there are extra vital historic points worthy trying into as soon as the collection are out.
Let’s wait and see how the collection seems. The discharge date as talked about within the title is Might tenth.
