Why did Cleopatra kiil herself?

Cleopatra was a very proud woman and simply could not face the certainty of the humiliation she would have to endure by being exhibited in Octavian's triumph in Rome. By her suicide, she redeemed herself in the eyes of some Romans, as suicide was an honorable way for a defeated person to make their permanent exit.
