For over 3,000 years Egypt was ruled by pharaohs, yet during this time only a handful of women reached this position. This lecture will explore the life of Hatshepsut, first as a queen to her husband Thutmose II, second as a regent to her step-son Thutmose III, and finally as the pharaoh of Egypt. Attention will be paid to her celebrated mortuary temple at Deir el-Bahri, with a recent discovery in the Egypt Centre particularly highlighted.
