Maria Viegas, Alexander the Great conquered Egypt. When he died his Empire was divided among his generals.Ptolemy for Egypt. His descendants, who were Greek, ruled Egypt until Rome came along. The Ptolemys kept the bloodline Greek. Cleopatra was probably a blonde.

In Number 6, You Forgot To Mention That Along With The Parts Removed From The Body Being Mummified, (Except The Heart,) The Brain Was Pulled Out Of The Skull Through The Nose With A Long Thin Hook! In Number 8, Not Only Do The Family Goes Into Mourning At The Lost Of Their Cat, But They Show Their Grief By Shaving Off Their Eyebrows!-That, And If The Cat Was Accidentally Or Deliberately Killed BY Someone, The Penalty Was DEATH!!! As There Was No Word For "Queen" Or A Female Ruler In The Language, One Of The First Queen Of Egypt, -Or Seemingly Anywhere Else At All At The Time,-Wore A Fake Beard As A Symbol Of Her Authority!
