Was Draupadi really a black beauty, as her original name was Krishna?

Draupadi was born of fire and so was dark, which gave her the name Krishnaa.

Shivaji Sawant's Mrityunjay describes Draupadi as a dark beauty with big eyes who carried a strong fragrance of Jasmine with her by birth.

A mysterious prophecy resounds, and the bewitchingly beautiful princess Draupadi arises from the sacred fire in Panchala. Draupadi is also said to be dark in color like Krishna. Hence, the name Krishnaa is said to have been given to her to represent her color, similar to Krishna, who is described as dark blue, resembling a rain cloud. She came out of the sacred fire Yajna so she is also called Yajnaseni.

According to Mahabharata, She was an astonishingly outspoken woman, who is abandoned at every turn, and forced to make the difficult choice between revenge and compassion.

Draupadi the princess is in love with Arjuna, the Pandava prince. But fate weaves strange events, and Draupadi finds herself wedded to five men--Arjuna and his four Pandava brothers. Draupadi's life is complicated further by the Kauravas--her husbands' wicked cousins--who try everything in their power to harm her and the Pandavas. As the fiery princess Draupadi's terrible destiny begins to unfold, she goes from majestic queen with five warrior husbands to a poor servant girl. Evil waits around every corner and a terrible war looms overhead.
