Cleopatra VII is an inspiration.


Taking into consideration she lived in a patriarchal society (though Egypt were far more liberal when it came to females), Cleopatra VII capabilities are awe inspiring. Seducing two Roman generals, Julius Ceaser and Mark Antony (both extremely influential, especially Ceaser), with not her looks but her brain. A mathematician, businesswomen, politician and fluent in 9 languages (including Egyptian, the first of the Ptolemies to be so) her life story is just fascinating! I recommend you research into her, regardless of gender, because even if you’re not inspired you will most certainly be intrigued by the powerful heroine.
