When Pharaoh Thutmose II died, he left an heir far too young to rule Egypt. His widow Hatshepsut stepped up to take his place. For at least the next 20 years, Hatshepsut ruled as Pharaoh King of Egypt in an era of prosperous growth and peace. When she died, her nephew Thutmose III attempted to smear her good name and wipe her memory from history. However, despite his efforts, his aunt Hatshepsut holds the title of most famous native Egyptian woman to ever rule as pharaoh; she also retains a legacy as one of the most successful female leaders in early history.
Hatshepsut was an amazing woman. She knew exactly how to play her cards right to achieve the outcome she desired. I loved learning about her and her reign. She was tough, smart and unique for her time. The Egyptians were full of traditions about their Pharaohs. And because of this, a woman pharoah was not an ordinary queen. So, she helped pave the way for other Pharaoh-Queens.
Well! This is a great concept. A non-fiction book in 60 minutes is a great way to learn. I actually read this in less than an hour and enjoyed it immensely. It is packed full of information about Hatshepsut, Egyptian royalty and traditions.
