THE SERPENT OF THE NILE


Though popularly thought to have been an Egyptian, Cleopatra was a Macedonian, the daughter of Ptolemy XI. She married two of her brothers and was the mistress of both Caesar and Mark Antony.

Bay, I can't post using my pc. Thanks for allowing me to use yours. I heard about your webpage from our colleagues, and I got curious. It's really exciting. Your webpage is very neat and orderly.

I didn't know that Cleopatra was not an Egyptian. Many thanks for posting this article. Your other articles are very informative, too! I will always visit your blogspot.

Enjoy! I am using my initials!

I understand KMK. Even I don't use my pc that much for blogging. Only when we get the chance ha ha ha!!!

Many thanks for leaving a comment. You need to review your ancient history. I can always lend you some of my history books.

Visit as often as you can.

... and if Cleo has had a different nose, as they say, all the story/history would have been different !

As a matter of fact : HI !
Hope you and your mate will get that famous visa. You could really enjoy Paris if your holidays last as long as the Ramadan. Don't miss the Belleville area in Ramadan time.

Yes, I read something about the theory of Cleopatra's. It has something to do with Cleo's prominent prow, which enticed Marc Anthony so much that he lost track of time, which led to the collapse of the Roman Empire. But it was just a theory.

I am looking forward to getting a Schengean visa and enjoy Paris, the city of lights.
