Cleopatra VII

Cleopatra VII: The legendary last pharaoh of ancient Egypt known for her power, seduction, and ruthlessness. Why she's scandalous: Cleopatra knew how to use her sex appeal to get what she wanted, including having herself delivered to Caesar rolled up in a Persian carpet before becoming his mistress. She then famously became Mark Antony's lover — which ended with him taking his own life and her allegedly killing herself with a snake bite.
