I Am Cleopatra is an episode of Xavier Riddle and the Secret Museum.

Synopsis

Xavier is stoked to see a super awesome super moon in real life! There's just one problem: he'd have to stay up past bedtime. How can he ask his parents? What if they say no? To the Secret Museum! Our heroes go back in time to meet someone who was skilled at the art of negotiation: Cleopatra. They arrive in Ancient Egypt and find Cleopatra just as she's preparing to ask her father a big question of her own: she wants to end her daily lessons a full hour early so she can attend a festival in town. Luckily, Cleopatra knows exactly how to ask! You have to be prepared, confident, and polite. Seeing how well Cleopatra's strategy works shows Xavier how important it is to ask for things the right way.
