A parade in Alexandria called 'Cleopatra's Dream', was held to promote the sunken city and attract more tourists.
She ruled more than 2,000 years ago – but Cleopatra remains one of the most famous regents in the world.
Now, the queen's reign has come alive in Egypt's second-largest city.
Egyptians parade through the city's streets dressed as soldiers and servants of the queen.
TRT World's Nicholas Morgan has the story.
