an important factual presentation by me
All the facts.
… Cleopatra is actually a terrible example to use for this, though?
Because Cleopatra was a member of the Ptolemaic dynasty, who were Greeks. Usually considered white. And in keeping with Egyptian tradition, Pharaohs married their siblings.
Now, that doesn’t mean Cleopatra was necessarily 100% Greek ethnically, because the Ptolemaic Pharaohs also had concubines and secondary wives who were native Egyptians. We don’t know all of Cleopatra’s lineage - we’re not even exactly sure who her mother was - so it’s easily possible (even likely) that she did have some native Egyptian heritage. (You can read a very good article about this here.)
However, Cleopatra is still a terrible example to use here because she was mixed Greek and Egyptian at most, and we can’t actually prove that she had any Egyptian heritage at all. (Again, it’s very likely that she did - but likelihood is not proof.) The only thing we know about her ethnicity for certain is that she had Greek heritage - which is hardly helping the OP’s point here.
And there’s no reason to use Cleopatra as your example here when there were literally bunches of dynasties before the Ptolemies who were of 100% Egyptian heritage. I know Cleopatra’s probably the most famous Egyptian ruler, but you could have used Nefertiti or Tut (both 18th dynasty) or Rameses the Great (19th dynasty), all of whom are quite well known and all of whom were from indigenous Egyptian dynasties. (Not to mention the admittedly less well-known but incredibly awesome Hatshepsut, lady Pharaoh extraordinaire.)
I mean, the argument here - which is a good and true one - is that the Ancient Egyptians were not white. But using a member of the Ptolemaic dynasty as an example just undermines that point.
Thank you! Ptolemies were not Egyptians, you’re better off using an actual Egyptian like Hatshepsut, Nefertiti, or Nefertari to support your argument.
