cleopatra committed suicide after hearing that her lover Mark Anthony had also killed himself after losing a Battle . She killed herself by enticing two Asp's (Venomous snake) to bit her after discovering that the Asp's venom caused little discomfort and instead sleepiness without the spasms of pain normally associated with a snake bite. She dies on August 12, 30 BC.

She was supposedly bitten by a snake or two, called a asp, if my spelling is correct. When she found out that Marc Anthony was dead and the Roman legions were coming for her. Supposedly, she and two of her maidens committed them selves to death by their own hands.

She had thought that Mark Antony had died in in middle of a battle...her depression led to suicide by letting a snake bite her, her servants layed down to die with her because they believed that the Pharaohs needed to be served in the after life too.  Mark Antony never really died, he got depressed that Cleopatra died and so he killed himself too.

Actually ... Antony Received a False Report Saying that Cleopatra had Committed Suicide So Antony Killed Himself.. Then Cleopatra Learned Octavian Planned to Exhibit her in Rome as Proof Of his Triumph So she Committed Suicide by Taking Poison .. Although Another Traditional Story says she died from the bite of an Asp .. Atleast thats what I read ..

Mark Antony heard she died and killed himself. Then she heard about his suicide and got an asp, a poisonous snake, to bite her on August 12, 30 B.C.E.

She was killed her-self by using a snake 'Asp', which founded near of Nile.
She preferred to committed suicide rather then killing by Romans..

Nubs. This is the correct answer. She had a poisonous snake (asp) bite her. She had her maids put it in a basket of figs that was going to her cell. Than all three died.

Oh my god people plz read your history books right. Okay she died because she let a snake bite her. But also remember she was given a false information saying mark anthony had killed himself when he actually wasn't died.  When she found out that he was "dead" she went to her room and her maids gave her the snake and let them bite her. After she died. News got to mark anthony ear's and he felt so dead inside he killed himself has well in order to be with her in the "afterlife"

She committed suicide after her husband did. She refused to be Octavian's slave, therefore she aged on a snake to bite her.

Cleopatra the Queen of Egypt is famous in history for her affair with the Roman general Mark Antony. Antony who was married to Octavia the sister of the Roman Emperor Augustus deserted her for Cleopatra; later on the Roman lands in the east became part of the dominion of Cleopatra. Augustus who was then known as Octavian and was yet to become Emperor declared Antony's acts as treason and convinced the Roman senate to declare war on Egypt.

Accordingly the naval Battle of Actinium was fought in 31 BC in which the forces of Augustus defeated the fleets of Antony and Cleopatra; Antony's men deserted him after which it is assumed that he committed suicide. According to popular legend Cleopatra too committed suicide by inciting an asp, a poisonous snake, to bite her. Cleopatra's death has been described vividly by the world famous dramatist William Shakespeare in his play Antony and Cleopatra.
