The Mysterious Death Of Cleopatra

aka Who Killed Cleopatra?

Shedding light on an ancient legend, a special investigation uses recent discoveries to reveal that Cleopatra’s death may not in fact have been suicide.


Egypt’s last Pharaoh, femme fatale, romantic icon; the ancient world’s most famous woman; the lover of Julius Caesar and Marc Anthony, the ruler of the Egyptian empire. This is the historical image of Cleopatra - a woman who died for love, the victim of a self inflicted snakebite. Now 2,000 years after her death, this special investigation penetrates the distant past and sheds new light on Cleopatra’s extraordinary life and her mysterious death. Top US Criminal Profiler Pat Brown, and a team of experts in archaeology and toxicology, psychology and Egyptology, re-examine the suicide story and find that all the leads point to a very different story – the murder of the Egyptian queen. The team identify a prime suspect, a man who had everything to gain by Cleopatra’s death.

From the makers of Richard The Lionheart & Saladin: Holy Warriors and Khubilai Khan’s Lost Fleet, this film combines modern criminal profiling techniques, stylish dramatisations and state of the art CGI to investigate the most famous suicide in history. History is rewritten as a compelling case for murder is presented in The Mysterious Death of Cleopatra.
