Who are femme fatales and why are they called that? The fact is that the word rock means fate, and they are called that because they played an important role in someone’s life.
There were those whose advice was heeded by the strongest and greatest men in history. For example, in ancient Greece there were hetaerae, who were specially brought up from childhood specifically for the seduction of men.

However, she managed to get the best husbands of Rome — Caesar and Antony. The historian Plutarch writes that she had an amazing gift of seduction.
Her real name is Margaret Zelle. From childhood, she got used to a luxurious life, however, by the will of fate, her family went bankrupt, after which she unsuccessfully married. After a series of failures, she took on the pseudonym Mata Hari and began to practice exotic dances.
