11. Cleopatra’s Sunken Palace
Alexandria was founded by Greece’s Alexander the Great in 331 BC. It was the seat of the Ptolemaic dynasty. Although for decades some scholars argued that it was more Greek than Egyptian, archeologists in 1998 found the remains of Cleopatra’s royal palace. The palace had been buried beneath the Mediterranean sea for 1,600 years. This was more evidence that Alexandria was part of the Egyptian Empire. Cleopatra was the final great Egyptian leader.
