Pub. Date:
A pharaoh who ruled Egypt more than 3,500 years ago is one of the most intriguing mysteries of the ancient world. Hatshepsut, the world's first and most powerful female pharaoh, was virtually unknown until the mid 19th century. Although there was a conspiracy to erase Hatshepsut from history, an amazing amount of factual details about her life have emerged. Depicted both as a man and a pharaoh in the hieroglyphs of her temple, she built monuments and sent out expeditions that would enrich Egypt’s culture. But how did she manage to become pharaoh? Will her mysteries ever be solved?

display_description The daughter of Thutmose I, a powerful Egyptian pharaoh, Hatshepsut was not destined to take the throne because of her gender. When the death of her father and his successor left Egypt without a pharaoh, she stepped into a powerful position unlike any woman before her. Despite an attempt to remove Hatshepsut from history, her legacy remains as Egypt's first female pharaoh.
