Cleopatra's Lost Palace
Cleopatra 7 was born in 69 BC in Alexandria, which was then the capital of Egypt. Her father was Egypt's pharaoh, Ptolemy 12 a.k.a. Auletes. She was only 17 when she became the queen of Egypt. Cleopatra 7 was the last pharaoh; after her death Egypt became a Roman province. In 1994 obscured by murky water for more than 1,500 years, remains of the ancient capital of the Ptolemies were found in Egypt's Port of Alexandria.
