Wait, there are people who don’t know Cleopatra was Greek? https://t.co/9CN1wktGtU

Eh, Milena, most people know almost nothing, and what they do “know” is just wrong, as in this case. But indeed, Cleopatra was not Arab but was Macedonian Greek. It’s very unlikely that the royal line would’ve intermarried with the local Egyptian Arabs, so, not so shockingly, she would’ve looked like a Macedonian Greek.
