History Cleopatra: The Polyglot Queen of Egypt

At the age of 17, Cleopatra became Queen of Egypt and ruled until she was 39 years old. She was a polyglot, as she spoke nine languages, including Ancient Egyptian and the languages of the Parthians, Hebrews, Medes, Troglodytes, Syrians, Ethiopians, and Arabs. This meant that she was able to read any book in the world.

Cleopatra's Broad Knowledge
Cleopatra's thirst for knowledge extended beyond just languages. She was also very knowledgeable in various subjects such as geography, history, astronomy, international diplomacy, mathematics, alchemy, medicine, zoology, economics, and more. Despite her many books being destroyed in a fire, some of her herbal remedies and beauty tips have survived.

"The ambition to learn was a quality that had set Cleopatra apart since she was young. She always wanted to know more about the world, and her intelligence was one of the key factors in her success as a ruler." - Historian Sarah B. Pomeroy

Access to Lost Papyri
Additionally, her knowledge of languages allowed her to have access to numerous papyri that are now lost. These papyri contained valuable information on various subjects, including medicine and science. Her influence on the sciences and medicine was highly esteemed in the early centuries of Christianity, making her an unparalleled figure in human history.

"Cleopatra's linguistic abilities and her interest in science and medicine have left an enduring legacy. Her influence can be seen in the works of scientists and philosophers for centuries after her death." - Historian Joann Fletcher
Cleopatra's intellect and proficiency in multiple languages contributed significantly to her success as a ruler and her lasting legacy. She remains an inspiration to this day, inspiring many to pursue education and knowledge.
