There were 7 Cleopatras of Egypt. Cleopatra the 7 had a Macedonian Greek mother and the Egyptian Pharoah was her father, and everything else is a pure lie.

Got 2 wrong. Never heard of the beer flood. And surprised that Genghis Khan was actually tolerant of other religions.

That was interesting! Re Genghis Khan, I think in SOME ways some of the historical figures that have become comic book villains were actually more tolerant than in the centuries after. Note I only said some!

Cleopatra was born in Egypt (Alexandria) therefore she was Egyptian from a Greek family. Also slavery existed long before the Americas were even thought of, not a very well thought out question either.

After the Revelutionary War the Northern States of the newly formed United State set out to abolished Slavery of any kind in 1789 by 1805 there were absolutely no slaves in the north. Including our nations capital. It was in fact only the Southern States that insisted on keeping their slaves. That lead to the Civil War and the final abolition of slavery in 1865.
