Dear Cleopatra

Write an open letter thanking a historical figure for her contributions to the world.

Dear Cleopatra,

Thanks for being so money that you are actually on money! Thank you for being a leader ahead of your time.

Your story has influenced writers, actors, artists. You snagged two of the most influential men of the time. Okay, so they weren’t exactly available.  You married your brother, which is kind of eww.


It still makes for a great story. You almost can’t make this stuff up.

Historians have said you weren’t attractive but you were especially charming and intelligent. Plus, you made your own lipstick, which is fascinating to me. If it wasn’t for you, there might not be lipstick.  I love lipstick so  I am extremely grateful.

The story even made a young girl question her history teacher. He said you were dragged through the streets naked. I didn’t believe him then. I thought he read too much fiction and not enough fact.

Thanks for being a queen bee.

Yours Truly,
