    Pocahontas was not a "sex symbol" until those pervs at Disney made her one. Actual contemporary paints of her showed a rather unattractive woman. They also showed that her husband, John Rolfe, was not terribly attractive either. They were perfectly matched, frankly. And that's just sad.

    Sex symbols, male or female, are typically forgotten when their day in the sun passes.

    Cleopatra is well known for being a tyrannical queen, not a sex symbol. Pocahontas isn't known for being a sex symbol either nor was she apparently very attractive.

    Cleopatra actually did change the world and was the leader of a great monarchy. But plenty of non-sexy women have gone down in history for their deeds. I don't think anyone has ever considered Queen Elizabeth I, Indira Gandhi or Golda Meir sex objects. Ditto Susan B. Anthony, Eleanor Roosevelt and Florence Nightingale. Pocahontas was never considered "sexy" until Disney reinvented her as a wasp-waisted "princess".

    Pocahontas was a sex symbol???? You must be thinking of the glamorous Elizabeth "Think I'll Have a Beer" Warren.

    What about Queen Sigríð?

    She (pbuh) was instrumental in preventing (or at least delaying) the take-over of her country by the savages led by Olaf the Butcher. Do you regard her as a "Sex Symbol™"?

    Yet surely she and her achievement are very well known to everyone.

      Queen Sugar? With both Oprah & Ava DuVernay as executive producers?
      Was this based off of a true historical figure from the past?
