I love fun facts like this.

Also, an addition to the fact about Cleopatra. Not only was she not Egyptian, but her family (The Ptolemies) were Macedonian/Greek. This is super cool to know, because the Ptolemies descended from Alexander the Great's general, Ptolemy I Soter. This family had a horrific habit of looking at their Greek heritage as being superior to the native customs and language. Cleopatra was the first one in her entire dynasty to actually learn the Egyptian language so she could communicate with her subjects.
