Consanguine Cleopatra?

on Mon 17 Jul - 19:43
I was reading about the Roman Empire on Wikipedia the other day and found that the acclaimed ancient beauty- Cleopatra was married to her brother!, though it didn't go well. Never knew that before.

Swaraj Lade, i think in the link you will find answers to every relative question. there were 5-6 cleopatras those years. very turbulent and violent years. incest realy a necessaire thing for the family. worth reading.

I think her marriage to her brother was an arranged marriage, in the sense that they had to marry because it was their religious duty as members of the Royal family. Cleopatra however did end up cheating on her brother/husband with Mark Anthony IIRC and thus it brought about the end of the final dynasty of ancient Egypt.

actually incestuous unions among the pharoahs was quite common. at various points they were viewed as gods themselves and it wasn't worthy of them to marry anyone who wasn't. actually it was common among the royalty of europe too. the hapsburgs are a prime example. hence hemophilia and a crop of other hereditary diseases from mixing a limited gene pool over a long period of time.
