There is a mounting pile of evidence that demonstrates Cleopatra was in fact, murdered. One need only to study her personality to see that suicide was not really in her psyche. The question that is arising from this debate now is, was she killed by Octavian or someone else. Even the oldest know account is not clear on how she died, by poisoning herself or allowing an asp to bite her, neither of which do I think are true. For starters, no snake was ever found in her room, so where did it get to? Also, two handmaidens were also killed, that is one busy snake. Recently, however, a Criminal Profiler with the FBI (Pat Brown) and a diverse team re-examined this issue. They discovered there was no family history of suicide, nor any indication she would do such a thing, it was out of character. This then, opens the door for other possibilities, such as murder. We also must remember, the Romans wrote the history of this as victors usually do. It would be in their (Octavianís) best interest to tell the world she committed suicide rather than they had her executed. This is only the tip of the iceberg for this story; it is a fascinating area to look into. Will we ever know?

I agree with you Mister Bones, Cleopatra Had Julius Caesar's and Mark Anthony's Kids , that were killed By Octavian.
