Cleopatra ‘of African descent’

The legendarily beautiful Egyptian queen Cleopatra was part African, says a documentary team who believe they have found the tomb of her sister.

It was traditionally thought that Mark Anthony’s lover was of Greek descent.

But remains of the queen’s sister Princess Arsinoe, found in Ephesus, Turkey. indicate that her mother had an “African” skeleton.
Experts have described the results – revealed in a BBC documentary – as “a real sensation.”

The discovery was made by Dr Hilke Thuer of the Austrian Academy of Sciences. He said: “It is unique in the life of an archaeologist to find the tomb and the skeleton of a member of Ptolemaic dynasty.

“That Arsinoe had an African mother is a real sensation which leads to a new insight on Cleopatra’s family and the relationship of the sisters Cleopatra and Arsinoe.”

…………………………………………………

He continued: “It was like a splash of cold water in the face to be confronted by them as human beings.

…………………………………………………………………………….
There was plenty of sibling rivalry Princess Arsinoe and her powerful sister Cleopatra – many believe the queen ordered her Roman partner Mark Anthony to murder her.
The film examines the life of Cleopatra – who had an affair with Julius Caesar – including her murderous intentions towards Arsinoe.

  1. You know, wat they actually said was Arsinoe had an Egyptian mother (African) which you’ve all decided means black. The recon certainly isn’t of a mixed race woman.

    See it here.

    “Dr Caroline Wilkinson, who leads the unit, said: “The skull that was found is not complete but from examining the bone structure and shape we are able to add the lower part of the jaw and then render the skull as a full 3D model.”

    The team also found that the skull and skeleton of Arsinoe may indicate that she had both European and ancient Egyptian characteristics.”

    It’s shocking the amount of outright lies you guys tell. And no-one knows if she had the same mother as Cleopatra

  3. why is it so hard for society to admit great people in history were of african descent. Egypt is located in africa,which means people from egypt are africans.

    1. ONE. IT WILL SHATTER THE LIE OF SO CALLED WHITE SUPREMACY ETC.
      TWO. THE TABLES WILL TURN ON THEM.
      THREE IT SIGNALS THE END FOR THEIR ARROGANT SADISTIC EVIL AND RACIST SOCIAL RULE.

      FOUR. THEY WILL BE IGNORED AND IRRELEVANT

      AND GOOD RIDDANCE…
      FIVE. NO MORE COMPLEXION FOR THE PROTECTION.

  4. The ones they call Black today, wih a frightenening image, Jane Austen (1775-1817) and her circle called, ‘pure of blood,’ proof of nobility,’ ‘distinguished looks, ‘peculiar looks.’ Her Emma Woodhouse in Emma (1816) is quite black of complexion and called: ‘Loveliness itself.’ Austen’s mother had an complexion: ‘without any brightness.’ And she had the noble ancestors. Jane Austen was ‘brown, a rich colour, not a pink colour, and a brunette of complexion with hazel eyes. The nonsense about no portrait for the greatest writer in the world, is because there are portraits but she shows thick lips and prognatism so even a child will see her blackness. Look for my bookcover in google : The eloquence of her blood; Was Jane Austen Black? (2010)
    Elswhere I point out that the US considers all North Africa as whites, so when we discuss this there is a problem of definition. By some freak definition Somali’s are Caucasian African: though never treated as whites when they step out of Africa by their white Caucasian brethren.
    So brothers and sisters, use your brain, when the enemy is trying everything to keep us under. Find out about my International Campaing against falsified, over paints of the European noble and royal elite (1100-1848)
    We can free ourself in 2013 by denouncing all the fake paintings they show us, with the black face under the beige and pink layer. Just go and see them in your local museum. All of them.
