Did you know Cleopatra’s net worth was estimated to be more than Bill Gates and Elon Musk combined?
Cleopatra gained unimaginable wealth through long time trade with Greece and Carthago in the past made the 31th dynasty rich and when Cleopatra became queen she inherited it all.
The economy of Egypt during Cleopatra’s reign was robust and efficient. This made Cleopatra fabulously wealthy and one of the wealthiest monarchs in the world. She was wealthier than Caesar, but had no standing army, and was highly coveted by and vulnerable to Rome.
While her actual worth is impossible to accurately pinpoint it is estimated that she was worth anywhere from $95 Billion to and some have estimated that over $400 Billion dollars in today’s times. Any way you look at it, that’s a lot of dough.
