Archeologists have identified the skeleton of ancient Egyptian Queen Cleopatra's younger sister, who was murdered on the orders of Cleopatra herself over 2000 years ago.
Archeologists and forensic experts believe they have identified the skeleton of Cleopatra's younger sister, murdered more than 2,000 years ago on the orders of the Egyptian queen. The remains of Princess Arsinoe, put to death in 41BC on the orders of Cleopatra and her Roman lover Mark Antony to eliminate her as a rival, are the first relics of the Ptolemaic dynasty to be identified.
