  • Before, all of that happened...
  • The first female pharaoh, Hatshepsut, was a noble and powerful leader even though she was a woman. 
  • Hatshepsut was different, she didn't want to conquer lands she instead wanted to enrich Egypt by building and helping Egyptians.
  • After she died...
  • In order for people to accept her as pharaoh, Hatshepsut began to dress like a pharaoh. She even wore a fake beard and a short kilt like the men wore.
  • What really happened to cause this...
  • She had a husband (her half-brother) and he died when he was 56, though she had a step-son (Thutmose III) that couldn't rule due to his age. That is why she became Egypt's first female pharaoh for an act of regent.
  • Little things remained surprisingly because usually there would be a lot that remained, though archaeologists found out that someone almost erased her from history.
  • Though, the one who almost erased her from history might have been Thutmose III, her son in law.
