Hey,

Was Cleopatra V11 tomb ever found? Did the romans not hold a burial for her? Was she buried in Egypt, or Rome?

Need answers please. :?: :?:

Thanks

Mariah :roll:

She wasn't buried in Rome I believe we can be sure about that, and my guess is that if there's any place were she could have been buried it would be Alexandria.

Nice Avatar by the way

For as far as I know Cleopatra had a mausoleum built in Alexandria. I think that the under water excavations by Goddi (sp?) have uncovered some artifacts that may possibly belong to the mausoleum. (according to a blurb on the discovery channel site anyway)

The story goes that Cleopatra was allowed to bury Anthony, and after that she managed to commit suicide by snake bite.
Was Anthony buried in Cleopatra's mausoleum then?

I'm curious if there are any descriptions of the building from antiquity. Considering Cleopatra's character it must have been a grand structure. (Can't see her planning her burial in some small annex Laughing )

I might not have expressed myself clear enough while I wrote:

Cleopatra was considered as public enemy numero uno for the Roman republic, at that stage Rome didn't want a monarchy again and because G.Julius Caesar gained so much power and had a son with Cleopatra, they even got rid of Caesarion (the son of Caesar and Cleopatra).

And the Senat was right for fearing the lost of control of power because only 16 year later Caesar's nephew Octavianus succeeded in what Caesar might have tried and became emperor. (Tell me if I'm wrong)

By the way I once read that Augustus (Octavianus) was the only Roman emperor who died by natural causes.

Just out of interest did you know that the Caesarean section is so called because, according to folklore, Julius Caesar was deliverd this way? Sorry - it's just Psusennes III post made me think so I looked it up Smile ( plus it's way past my bed time but I'm doing my tax return so I don't need much excuse to be distracted Laughing )

I was going to say you have way too much time, but anything's better than taxes indeed. Rolling Eyes
Tom, actually there were some other emperors who died of natural causes as well. Augustus was one of them, Tiberius, Vespasianus, Titus, Nerva, Trajan, Hadrian, Lucius Aelius, Antoninus Pius, Marcus Aurelius, Lucius Verus, Tetricus I, Tetricus II, Septimius Severus, Valerian (died in Persian captivity though), Claudius II Gothicus, Diocletian, Constantius I Chlorus, Galerius, Constantine the Great, Maximinus Daia, Constantius II, Jovian, Valentinian I, Theodosius I, Arcadius, Honorius, Olybrius, Glycerius (died as a bishop), and perhaps Romulus Augustulus as well (he died after 510).
The other ones... I think some 60 to 70 of them got lynched by their own soldiers. Smile
My favorite emperor not to die of natural causes is Carus: got struck by lightning. Confused

Was that just now a record for highest number of changes of topic per number of posts? Twisted Evil

Considering our track record that may be hard to believe, but still....

Well I just took out my copy of "Chronicle of the Roman Emperors" and I realized that I should have done that before I posted this on this forum.

Thanks for putting this right Segereh
