    The photo is of Elizabeth Taylor, who played Cleopatra in the movie of the same name (Cleopatra), opposite Richard Burton as Caeser. There were no cameras in ancient Egypt, thus there are no photos of the real Cleopatra.

    I cant believe that you have an image of a white Cleopatra.
    Egypt is in Africa not on some coast in Sweden.
    White people never want a black person to have anything.
    Look at the White House damn black people built that and yall call it the White House.
    If you want images of Cleopatra i have them by the lots just email me.
    Oh and don’t fro get Jesus was black Ronald Regan was the Devil and the Government is lying about 911
