Cleopatra is one of the most famous rules in history. She ruled Egypt, and she was brave enough to challenge Rome, at a time Rome was the strongest empire in the world.

When Roman armies arrived in Egypt, Cleopatra tried to fight them off with the help of her lover and former Roman general, Mark Antony. But their armies were defeated.

Rather than submit to capture, both Mark Antony and Cleopatra committed suicide. Mark Antony used his sword, while Cleopatra drank poison.

They were buried together, but their tomb remains unknown somewhere near Alexandria, Egypt. According to Roman historians, Caesar allowed the two to be buried together, but the tomb was never found.
