What Queen of Greek linage ruled Egypt?

Born in 69 B.C., Queen Cleopatra was a descendant of Ptolemy I, a Macedonian Greek and companion of Alexander the Great. After the conquest of Egypt in 332 B.C., the Ptolemy (TALL-uh-mee) dynasty remained Macedonian Greek until 30 B.C. Cleopatra's grandfather may have had a concubine, so it is possible that her ethnicity included Egyptian.
