My name is Arienne King. I am an active member of the Royal Heraldry Society of Canada (RHSC) and the National Writers Union (NWU). I have a lifelong fascination with history which has inspired my current studies in the fields of history, anthropology, heraldry, heritage, sexuality, and identity.
My studies tend to focus on Hellenistic and Egyptian history although I am also fascinated by African and Roman archaeology. Of particular interest to me is public misconceptions about ancient history and combating these by disseminating knowledge through easily accessible and engaging formats.
I actively contribute to AskHistorians as a moderator and panelist (under the username cleopatra_philopater) which has given me the opportunity to work with academics and history enthusiasts from a broad range of fields.
I have also contributed to a number of history-related projects ranging from research for historical fiction novels to education-based YouTube channels, and I try to take an active role in sharing a love of ancient history with as many people as possible.
