Cleopatra was afraid to open the door because of the approach of Octavian's army, but she and her two serving women let down ropes from a window and pulled him up.

Egyptologists say that Cleopatra was descended from the Ptolemies, a Macedonian family, whose patriach was once a general for Alexander the Great.
In light of the matrilinear nature of Egyptian succession, it is unlikely that her father would have named her as his heir had she been the offspring of a concubine considering she had a legitimate sister Arsinoë.
The belief is clearly based on a stereotypical myth of Cleopatra as an exotic eastern queen rather than the historical reality of her as a red-headed Macedonian.

 Berenice III
Only if she was a daughter of Cleopatra Selene could there be no doubt about her legitimacy, since Cleopatra IV, unique amongst Ptolemaic queens, was married to Ptolemy IX before his accession, and her divorce was a condition imposed by Cleopatra III for accepting him (Justin 39.3).
2, in preferring Cleopatra IV as her mother, notes that Berenice III could then have been born as early as 120, making her as old as 40 on her accession.
are a formulaic error, the examples of the children of Ptolemy II by Arsinoe I posthumously adopted by Arsinoe II, Cleopatra III as "daughter" of Ptolemy VIII, and the sons of Ptolemy IX probably by Cleopatra IV and adopted by Cleopatra Selene suggest that the possibility of adoption is real.
