its famous all over the world in books by napelon french expedition but its wrong the right during the Islamic time .
The story is that Napoleon's army were respnsible for the loss of the sphinx's nose, but this is just a story. The sphinx is carved out of sandstone and over the centuries it has been eroded by the weather,and as the nose was the most fragile part it got so wethered that it eventually fell off, but no one knows exactly when.

Napoleon and that was at the end of the 18th century, between the years 1798 to 1800 but cant tell the real date and the announced reason that he was searching for a treasure inside it, some ppl said that did not want any civilization marks that is not in france.
