Hatchepsut : The Female Pharaoh, Paperback Book

Description

Queen - or, as she would prefer to be remembered King - Hatchepsut was an astonishing woman.

Brilliantly defying tradition she became the female embodiment of a male role, dressing in men's clothes and even wearing a false beard.

Forgotten until Egptologists deciphered hieroglyphics in the 1820's, she has since been subject to intense speculation about her actions and motivations.

Combining archaeological and historical evidence from a wide range of sources, Joyce Tyldesley's dazzling piece of detection strips away the myths and misconceptions and finally restores the female pharaoh to her rightful place.
