    Second Intermediate Period. Hatshepsut, one of the most well-known female kings of Egypt, is a clear outlier to what one would expect from a typical pharaoh. Her story, in summary, involves her gaining control over administration after King Thutmose II, her husband and step-brother, dies, and using that as a stepping stone to claim solitary kingship rather than continuing a life of co-regency – meaning, shared kingship – with Thutmose III, the originally intended male heir and her step-son.
