The Most Powerful Women In History Ranked

4. Cleopatra (69 BC-30 BC)

She used her power over them both to ally herself with the Roman Empire and influence political and military decisions. Both men had people killed at Cleopatra’s request. Cleopatra was more than just a pretty face. She spoke several languages fluently and was an accomplished diplomat and naval commander.

She was highly educated and well-read…she was an author and dabbled in medicine. Among her greatest accomplishment is demonstrating to the world that a woman is capable of being a powerful and effective leader.
