    She was certainly Caucasian.  Most people consider that white, but, there are many that make distinctions amongst peoples of Europe, not to mention other places where Caucasians live, like the Middle East, and India.

    Hell no she wasn't.

    Yes, but she wasn't a true Egyptian. She had Greek ancestry.

    Her ancestors were from Greece-Macedonia (her father was a general of Alexander the Great). And they always married within their family. So yes, she was Caucasian.

    No. She was Greek. Therefore not white.

    Yes if you mean Cleopatra VII Philopator . She was Greek. She was the last of the Ptolemaic pharaohs who were crowned by the Egyptian High Priest of Ptah at Memphis, but resided in the multicultural and largely Greek city of Alexandria, established by Alexander the Great of Macedon.They spoke Greek and governed Egypt as Hellenistic Greek monarchs, refusing to learn the native Egyptian language In contrast, Cleopatra could speak multiple languages by adulthood and was the first Ptolemaic ruler to learn the Egyptian language.

    I believe she was of Greek decent. She spoke 9 languages and was very a brilliant speaker.

    She was Macedonian, from northern Greece.
