Hatshepsut was a
female pharaoh of Egypt for 22 years from 1472 B.C.
A powerful and successful woman, Hatshepsut
helped rule Egypt as his ‘Great Royal Wife’. When
her husband died, Hatshepsut was named regent for
her step-son, who was still a young child. She took
the throne herself after a message from the gods
sanctioned her right to rule, and decided to wear
the complete regalia of a male pharaoh, including a
false beard, possibly to gain respect from the
Queen Hatshepsut ruled for 22 years,
longer than any female ruler before or after her,
and left behind a remarkable record of buildings and
sculptures, including her mortuary tomb Djeser-Djeseru, a marvel of architecture.
During Hatshepsut's reign
she took on a challenge and commissioned the
building a sea-faring ships which sailed down the
Red Sea to the port of Punt, a wealthy trading city,
which has been left to legend as its actual location
has been lost to our knowledge.
