    Still, we do not know her name. Not even the egyptologists knew much of her until recently. This though, is not entirely our fault. Shortly after her death, Hatshepsut’s legacy was destroyed. Historians argue on who erased her face from history, but the most common belief is her stepson, Thutmose III. Not because she was a horrible pharaoh, not because he wanted to take credit for her accomplishments, not even because he was angry she held the throne for so long. He removed her image from history because she was a woman. He planned to steal the thought from anyone’s mind that a woman could rule with such power, and to close the gap in the dynasty’s line of male rulers. Luckily, Thutmose III was not thorough enough in his ventures, and we know The King…

    history (Arnold, 291). In her early years, Hatshepsut used to sit in on her father's meetings with government officials. He apparently liked to keep her there, because she paid attention to what was going on around her, and learned from what she saw (Bridges, 4). When it came time for her father to think about a successor, he had little choice other than Hatshepsut, as his two sons died before they could take over the kingdom (Bridges, 6). Thutmose I decided to marry his daughter to his half…

    Hatshepsut’s father was the Pharaoh Thutmose I. Along with her sister and two brothers, she grew up in the royal courts of Egypt. Her siblings passed away while they were still young, so she became an only child. Her father became worried of who would become pharaoh after he died since there wasn’t a son anymore to inherit the throne, so he named one of Hatshepsut’s step-brothers as inheritor. Cleopatra’s father was the Pharaoh Ptolemy XII. Her family ruled Egypt for hundreds of years. They were…

    History project A: Hatshepsut- Although the status of women in ancient Egypt was higher than in any other ancient civilization, the notion that a woman could be king was abhorrent to the Egyptians. Yet, a woman did become king and not just an ordinary king. Her name was Hatshepsut and she ruled as pharaoh for fifteen years. Sadly, after her death the Egyptians, who were a deeply conservative people, obliterated her memory so that later pharaohs such as Ramses II and Cleopatra would have been…

    I will compare and contrast the Sphinx of Hatshepsut with Haremhab as a scribe of the King. The Sphinx of Hatshepsut is particularly interesting to me for the fact that she was a women pharaoh in Egypt in a time where men and women were not considered equal. Hatshepsut means “The Foremost of noble ladies.” She reigned from 1508–1458 BC and was the fifth pharaoh of the eighteenth dynasty of Egypt. Hatshepsut came to the throne of Egypt in 1478 BC. Officially, she ruled jointly with Thutmose III…

    However, history has forgotten Hatshepsut due to the fact that a woman who is successful is automatically distrusted, it is assumed that she will only care about herself and close family members, instead of being able to make far reaching political decisions. An ambitious woman leader is usually seen in history as a conniving, scheming seductress who foolishly brings down the men around her. During Hatshepsut’s 20 year reign she was able to recruit influential supporters, and many of whom were…
