In 2019, Zahi Hawass publicly revealed that they had discovered evidence of Cleopatra’s burial somewhere inside the temple of Taposiris Magna, around 45 kilometers from Alexandria.
However, after a misunderstanding occurred, it became very evident that fewer and fewer people wanted to be a part of this entire discovery, to say the least.
That is, until 2020, when the team made a remarkable discovery that fully reignited their hopes of uncovering Cleopatra’s grave.
After all, two of Egypt’s highest-ranking priests were discovered mummified in a secret lair inside the temple, implying that the alluring queen of Egypt is still alive and well.
These two priests, one female and one male, were covered in gold from head to toe, and more crucially, they wore the scarab insignia on their necklaces, proving that they had been working for Queen Cleopatra all along, as it was her sigil.
There is even evidence that she had frequently interacted with them, even going so far as to discuss private topics with them.
Kathleen Martinez, the leading archaeologist in charge of the excavations for the past fourteen years, recently scheduled an interview with Channel 5 in which she stated that she will be releasing all of the newfound information regarding the state of the two mummies’ bodies, as well as more information regarding their quest for Queen Cleopatra’s tomb.
