There are lots of stories about Cleopatra VII, her affairs with Julius Caesar (with whom she had children) and Mark Anthony. Cleopatra ruled Egypt between 305 and 30 B.C. The one mystery that remains around Cleopatra is her final burial place. We know that Cleopatra and Mark Anthony committed suicide after their defeat at the Battle of Actium in 31 B.C by their former ally Octavian. All we know about Cleopatra’s burial is that she was buried with her lover Mark Anhony. It is believed that they were buried near a temple dedicated to the Egyptian Goddess Isis, but the exact whereabouts of this tomb are yet to be discovered. Although, if someone does find the tomb one day, it may be discovered empty as grave robbing was very common in ancient times.
