If you thought that Lebanon’s only claim to fame was its world-famous hummus, halloumi, falafel and tabouleh, it is time to up your information quotient about the land! Home to world’s most loved cuisine, Middle East’s most glamorous city, Beirut and a string of beach resorts (things that will immediately put you into a holiday mood), Lebanon has also been home to fiery orators, fine entertainers, world-class diplomats and politicians, and, exceptionally talented sportsmen, musicians, artistes, innovators and many more. That’s right! We bet you did not know that the “Matrix” star Keanu Reeves was from Lebanon? Or that George Clooney’s lawyer wife Amal Clooney too called Lebanon her home? Or that the writer of “Broken Wings” Gibran Khalil Gibran was born in this Middle Eastern country? With so many important names to its claim, Lebanon stands as a mine of famous men and women. To know more about famous Lebanese people, delve deep into their biographies and learn all about their timeline, trivia, and interesting facts.
