The Nile is a River in Egypt; it has had an unsurpassed history as it has been the life force of the people of the region for thousands of generations. Being that it is one of the few rivers in the world that actually runs through a desert, many Egyptian civilizations built their homes close to the river banks where they could supply enough water to live, farm and commute. One of the greatest rulers of this region was Queen Cleopatra. Cleopatra VII Philopator commanded most of the lands that surrounded the Nile River thus being rendered as the Queen of the Nile. Cleopatra was known for her enchanting beauty, strength, charismatic personality and even her great sense of style.
The fancy dresses, robes and jewelry that Cleopatra wore regard her as a fashionista of the times. Many statues and paintings of the great Queen depict her wearing vibrant colors in her clothing and precious stones that set her aside from any other woman in history before her time. Celebrate the grandeur of one of the most iconic women in history by dressing up in the glamorous attire that made Cleopatra so famous.
