Cleopatra's cult to Aset

Post by AndreiaLi on 05.05.10 19:09

I have a doubt I would like to share. The cult of Cleopatra to Aset, is well known. Could it be, that Cleopatra was in fact an Asetianist, or even an Asetian?

Personally I have no idea. I don't have enough information to give a valuable opinion. But I believe both options are open, and not just Asetian. There were certainly many important Asetianists throughout history.

I am also a little rusty and need to learn more on Egyptian history. Cleopatra always appealed to me too, and one of my favorite stories is Shakespeare's Anthony and Cleopatra. Maybe it appeals because of the connection with Egypt.

  • Cleopatra had four children, namely Caesarion aka Ptolemy Caesar (son of Julius Caesar) and Alexander Helios, Cleopatra Selene II and Ptolemy Philadelphus (children of Mark Antony)

  • *Cleopatra believed that she was the daughter of Isis


  • Cleopatra was a very intelligent woman, with oodles of charisma and amazing powers of persuasion.


  • Cleopatra was not an Egyptian. Rather, she was a Macedonian Greek who descended from Ptolemy I, a Greek general of Alexander the Great. Ptolemy I became the king of Egypt following the death of Alexander.


  • In the entire 300-year old Ptolemaic dynasty, Cleopatra was the only Pharaoh who could speak Egyptian. Infact, she was the master of nine languages in totol
  • .
  • Cleopatra was one of the seven women named Cleopatra in the dynasty. This is why she was officially known as Cleopatra VII.


  • Cleopatra was the mistress, and probably the wife, of Julius Caesar. She was married to Mark Antony, apart from a few of her own brothers.
An off course she was famous for her milk bath Smile
*Milk Baths:

The history of the milk bath begins with Cleopatra, who was renowned in antiquity for her radiant beauty. This beauty was said to have been because of the Queen bathing in milk scented with honey, lavender, or rose petals. Some sources even suggest that strawberries and raspberries were used on occasion to scent her bath. It is said that Cleopatra's boat was so fragrant with rose petals that Mark Antony smelled the perfume before he saw the vessel itself. It is no stretch of the imagination to consider the fact that Cleopatra probably shared baths with both her lovers- Caesar and Antony. Science has reinforced the legend of Cleopatra's beauty, showing that bathing in milk relaxes the body and softens the [color:194e=#009900 ! important][color:194e=#009900 ! important]skin, the early scientist Pythagoras being the first to recognize the positive effects.

First fact regarding milk:

*Is from a cow or some other mother mammal

*The cow represents,( in symbolism ) mother .

*Milk is the first thing every child of a mammal eats/ drinks when it is born.

*mothers milk is mainly the best nourishment a child can have, because the body takes only the best nourishment from the mothers body .

*and the child also gets the mothers immune system while the Child still consumes her milk .
