Hatshepsut was the daughter of a King, the wife of a King and Pharaoh in her own right. In addition, she held the religious position of the God’s Wife of Amun and handed this role onto her daughter. This day school will examine her remarkable reign, one of the most prosperous in New Kingdom Egypt, although subsequent rulers attempted to erase her from history. The changing nature of her self-presentation will be examined and the monuments of her reign in order to understand her legacy.
