Cleopatras needle was made in ancient Egypt somewhere areound 1000 BC but it is not known by who. Cleopatra lives about 1000 years after it was made, so while it has been given her name she was not the one who had it made.
The Cleopatras was created in 1983.

Cleopatra's needles were quarried and built at Aswan. That's where the red granite is obtained. They then could be floated down the Nile to any city the pharaoh ordered.
Cleopatras needle is the common name for 3 obelisks which stand in London near the River Thames, in New York City and Paris France. These obelisks were not commisioned by Cleopatra. They were originally built by Thutmosis the 3rd and located in Heliopolis, Egypt. Cleopatra moved one of the obelisks to Caseaream in honour of Mark Antony and this is why the are called 'Cleopatra's' needle.
