After 2000 years, the tomb of Queen Cleopatra is believed to have been discovered as the experts found a strange place near Cairo. The Ancient Egyptian pharaoh’s tomb may have been located in a remote area on the Nile Delta, according to a recent documentary. At the moment, archeologists are digging at Taposiris Magna only 60 miles from Cairo, with the optimism that the secret behind the mysterious queen will be unmasked. Their quest will be exhibited on the “Cleopatra: Sex, Lies, and Mysteries” Science Channel Special and will premiere on June 21 at 8 p.m. ET/PT.

An Ancient Egyptian pharaoh, King Tut’s tomb was the most recent discovery alongside a treasure trove of jewelry and gold, hence labeling him the “Golden King” because his tomb was found intact. Whenever they discover the remains of the Egyptian pharaohs, they also find relics and riches buried with them, only if the gold thieves did not raid the tomb.

“In Egypt, on the edge of the Nile delta, a massive archaeological dig is underway as experts search for the tomb of Egypt’s most famous pharaoh. A theory about Cleopatra’s burial ground, introduced by archaeologist Dr. Kathleen Martinez, suggests her tomb may be found in a place known as Taposiris Magna,” explains Science Channel in a statement.

Queen Cleopatra Killed Herself Through Snake Bites

Creepy and scary as it sounds, the brilliant and fearless Pharaoh, Cleopatra, was the last queen of Ancient Egypt who committed suicide through poisonous snake bites. Legend has it that Cleopatra forced her servants to smuggle venomous snakes in her temporary cell so that they bite her to death. She is one of the most prominent women leaders in history. Her husband, Julius Caesar, was the Roman Emperor. Cleopatra is well-known for marrying the Roman Emperor.

Cleopatra VII was one of Egypt’s greatest popular pharaohs and was born in 70 BC or 69 BC. Roman emperors conquered Egypt after her death. In 53 BC, the Queen died after her capture and imprisonment by the Roman Emperor, Octavian, in the Egyptian city of Alexandria. The empire collapsed at 3,000 years old. The fact that the pharaohs frequently established massive tombs to be buried in, it is probable Cleopatra was given a lonely funeral in an austere tomb at her moment of death.

Tomb of Queen Cleopatra Soon Discovered

Archeologists have never found Cleopatra’s tomb, but they know it is somewhere near Alexandria. Taposiris Magna has generally been known to be the last resting spot for Cleopatra, but archeologists still have to dig up her grave. The same-named temple was a famous harbor city during the age of Cleopatra located outside Alexandria.

“Built over 2,000 years ago, the grounds of Taposiris Magna are honeycombed with hidden passages and tombs. When experts astonishingly uncover an undisturbed tomb decorated in gold leaf, it could be the answer to the 2,000-year-old, the mystery of Cleopatra’s final resting place,” Science Channel said.

Why Ancient Egypt was and is Still Famous

Here’s all you need to know about the pharaoh’s famous classical world. The ancient Egyptians were a powerful civilized empire that ruled an overwhelming chunk of the earth at one time. Around 5000 years ago, civilization started as ancient people began to construct settlements along the River Nile. It extended for 3,000 years and had the development of large settlements, as well as the prominent Great Pyramids, centuries ahead of time. The ancient Egyptians were agricultural and building experts. They created solar calendars as well as ‘The Hieroglyph,’ one of the earliest writing systems on the planet. Kings and queens appointed as pharaohs governed the Egyptians.


Religious ideology and afterlife were an enormous part of the culture of Ancient Egypt. More than 2,000 gods were worshiped. Pharaohs constructed massive, extensive tombs, most of which were pyramids, some of the largest structures on the globe those days. The ancient Egyptians believed in the afterlife, and corpses of important authorities were mummified to maintain their bodies for life after death. A combination of aspects along with wars with several other kingdoms and a 100-year dry-hunger timeframe resulted in the collapse of the ancient Egyptian empire.
