Turkish coffee.

Or Greek coffee, or Arabic coffee, depending on where you are. Traveling through North Africa, the Mediterranean, and the Balkans, it is important to make the distinction so as not to offend people. Also so that you actually get your coffee. Servers and shop keepers will sometimes refuse to bring it to you until you call it by the regionally correct name. <—personal experience

(This one is Turkish.)

HISTORY MEME - nine rulers: cleopatra vii [8/9]

Cleopatra VII Philopator was the last queen of Egypt and a member of the Greek Ptolemaic Dynasty. Although she originally was co-ruler with her father, and later with her two younger brothers, she eventually became sole ruler of Egypt. She was the first member of her family to learn to speak Egyptian, and she spoke several other languages as well. She became queen at age 18, but was forced to flee Alexandria after relations between her and her brother, Ptolemy XIII, broke down. Famously, she smuggled herself back to Alexandria in order to meet Julius Caesar, who had seized the Egyptian capital. Caesar and Cleopatra became lovers during the time of his stay in Egypt, and she bore him a son, Caesarion. Eventually Ptolemy was defeated and Cleopatra was restored to the throne as co-ruler with her other brother, Ptolemy XIV. Cleopatra visited Rome, where she stayed with Caesar, and after Caesar’s assassination she returned to Egypt with Caesarion. She was summoned to meet Mark Antony in Tarsus, and she so charmed him that he spent the winter with her in Alexandria. Four years later, Antony returned to Alexandria, this time for good. It is suggested that the couple were married in the Egyptian rite, and they had three children together. Relations between Antony and Octavian eventually broke down, and the ensuing war with Rome culminated in the Battle of Actium, where Cleopatra and Antony’s forces were defeated. Antony committed suicide, and Cleopatra did likewise, reportedly by having a poisonous snake bite her. Caesarion was killed by Octavian, though her children with Antony were taken back to Rome and raised by Antony’s wife, and Egypt became a Roman province. (x)
