Hatshepsut: The Queen Who became Pharaoh

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


Pharaoh Hatshepsut

Hatshepsut was the longest reigning female pharaoh. Under her reign, Egypt prospered. Known as “The Woman Who Was King,” the Egyptian economy flourished during her time as pharaoh. She directed the construction and repairs of many buildings, memorials, and temples. However, upon her death, Hatshepsut’s successors tried to erase any memory of her. While the goal may have been to eradicate her from memory, these attempts only fueled the desire of modern civilizations to know more about her. More than 3,000 years after her death, archaeologists were intrigued and mystified as they attempted to locate and identify her remains.

Born to a Pharaoh and Rose to be Pharaoh Herself

Born in 1508 BC, Hatshepsut was the only child born to Egyptian king Thutmose I and his principal wife and queen, Ahmose. When Hatshepsut was 12 years old, her father passed away. She married her half-brother Thutmose II, and assumed the role of principal wife and queen.
