Storyboard Text

  • A Day In The life of Queen Hatshepsut
  • Everyone Had Different Opinions On Hatshepsut
  • I like her. She seems like a strong leader.
  • This "Queen Hatshepsut" is breaking Tradition! Only men should be pharaoh!
  • It Was Not Easy Being The First Woman Pharaoh
  • But you're just a woman! You will never last as a pharoah! 
  • Queen Hatshepsut was the first female pharoah to rule Egypt. Hatshepsut began to rule Egypt on behalf of the death of her brother/husband, Thutmose II. She ruled in pace of her infant stepson, Thutmose III.
  • Hatshepsut Led Her Army In Battles
  • Some people thought it was bad that Hatshepsut was breaking tradition. Others thought she was a strong, trusting leader.
  • Hatshepsut Expanded The Trade Routes of Ancient Egypt
  • Thutmose III (Hatshepsut's stepson) grew angry. He thought he should be ruler, and not is stepmother, Queen Hatshepsut. Many people did not like that she was breaking tradition.
  • The Queen Died Early February of 1458 BC 
  • Hatshepsut was still worried about her position. In particular, she had to deal with her army, which was led by her stepson (and rightful pharaoh),Thutmose III. She had a problem: if she led them into battle and lost, she would be blamed and could lose power. If her army won the battle, Thutmose would get all the credit and she could lose power. 
  • One of Hatshepsut's major achievements was expanding the trade routes of Ancient Egypt. Most importantly was an expedition to the Land of Punt, which became a major trade partner supplying Egypt with gold, resin, wood, ivory, and wild animals.
  • Here lies one of Egypts greatest pharaohs, Queen Hatshepsut.
