Cleopatra VII, daughter of Ptolemy XII, was the famous Caesar-loving, Mark-Anthony-loving Cleopatra. She may have had a brother killed, she certainly fought another brother, and allowed Caesar to bring a sister, Arsinoe, in a triumph in chains through Rome, later having Arsinoe gutted in a temple sanctuary.
The Cleopatra family name was found in the USA between 1880 and 1920. The most Cleopatra families were found in and the USA in 1880and the USA in 1920. In 1880 there was 1 Cleopatra family living in Pennsylvania. This was 100% of all the recorded Cleopatra's in the USA.
Cleopatra was determined that she would not be paraded through the streets of Rome before being executed in a triumph and so she began to test poisons on condemned prisoners to see which one would be best. Deciding that the fast poisons were too painful and the least painful were too slow she apparently turned to animal venoms and settled on.

One hypothesis contends that possibly they (and perhaps Cleopatra VII) were Ptolemy XII's children with a theoretical half Macedonian Greek, half Egyptian woman belonging to a priestly family from Memphis in northern Egypt, but this is only speculation.
