Anne Boleyn & Cleopatra 
Both were Queen’s in a male dominated world, both succeeded and created powerful kingdoms, and both had tragic endings… 

Anne Boleyn didn’t create a powerful kingdom nor did her marriage to King Henry give birth to Protestantism (seriously every time I hear this I feel like screaming). Cleopatra on the other hand also didn’t create a powerful Kingdom but destroyed one.
I actually had meant to put that one helped created a powerful kingdom, so sorry about that. Also I never said anything about Protestantism, and Cleopatra helped re-establish a common connection between the Crown and the people, which I see personally as a triumph.
