Understand the Significance of Queen Hatshepsut.
Hatshepsut was born around 1508 B.C. in Thebes, Egypt, during the 18th Dynasty. Her father was Tuthmosis, or Thutmose the 1st, and her mother was Abmose.

Hatsheput was the daughter of a Pharaoh and the wife of another Pharaoh.

When Hatsheput's husband Thutmose the 2nd died, their only child (Neferure) was too young to rule, so having the chance Hatshepsut made herself queen.

Question One
Hatshepsut ,the women who was king, did not have a lot of supporters, because they did not accept the fact that they had a female ruler.

To gain their support Queen/King Hatshepsut sometimes put on
a fake beard
that was a symbol of a Pharaoh's power. She even gave rituals that were a king's duty and wore men's clothes.

Although Queen Hatshepsut sometimes referred to herself as a "he", she still had female interests such as creams, perfumes, jewelry, and accessories.
Hatshepsut was so pleased that she had their adventure carved on the walls of her gigantic temple (called Djeser-Djeseru) which still stands to day.

Hatshepsut also built 2 tall, towers (obelisks) and one still stands today.

Interesting Facts
Around 1458 B.C. Hatshepsut died between 35 and 55 years of age. She lived an extremely long time (for that time period) and lived a life of great health.

Many scientists believed that Hatshepsut was poisoned by putting on some moisturizer (cream). They also believe that she might have had diabetes and cancer as well. Some Historians believe that she was murdered by her step-son Thutmose the 3rd.

When Hatshepsut was buried, she was buried in the Valley of Kings instead of in the tomb that she had prepared when she was a queen.

Someone tried to erase all known existence of Hatshepsut 20 years after her death. They chipped images off walls and crushed her statues. The reason for this is still a mystery but, some historians believe it was either her half-son Thutmose the 3rd or some Egyptians felt some-what embarrassed for once having a female ruler. Since they failed, scientists now know the story of the little princess who became a great wife who much later became Pharaoh.

Understand the Significance of Queen Hatshepsut
Queen Hatshepsut's ruling was very peaceful, and frequently she was called "Good Queen Hatshepsut".

During her 20 years on the throne she built Egypt's wealth and power by trade. Because she sent her crew to discover a strange land, once called Punt, in East Africa, the crew brought back many riches such as ivory tusks, gold, and myrrh trees. This is why Hatshepsut is so important to Egypt.

Her crew brought back ivory tusks, gold, and myrrh trees.
