    He sabido quién eras porque te pareces mucho a tu padre

    we coul traslate this sentence to English saying

    I’ve known whom you were because you look very much like your father?

    If I an wrong, give me an alternative, please

    We really need context here, but I would say it sounds more natural as "I realised who you were because you look like your father". "He sabido" has an element of action that "I've known" just doesn't have, and in English it would be more natural to use the past simple if this is a past event.
