In “Hatshepsut, His Majesty, Herself,” by Catherine Andronik, she informs the reader about Hatshepsut and her role as an effective female pharaoh in ancient Egypt. One supporting detail of Hatshepsut’s effectiveness as a pharaoh is that she was a regent. In paragraph eight, the author tells us that a regent is “an adult who could take control of the country.” In addition, the author states,”...had been training for since her earliest days by her father’s side. Women had acted as regents for infants…” Because Hatshepsut had been ready for this job, and was familiar with Egypt, she was now regent for Tuthmosis III because he was not mature enough to rule. Further in the text, we learn that Hatshepsut assists Tuthmosis III, but she is starting
Hatshepsut was an effective religious leader. She credited her place to Amun through her Heavenly Birth. She followed the god’s command by acquiring an expedition to Punt and gave gifts to the gods; she gave praise to Amun for her military victories and triumphs. Hatshepsut also kept religious festivals and contributed numerous respect and influence to the Amun priesthood. Hatshepsut made sure Egypt was safe after her death. There is no surprise that Thutmose III became one of the supreme pharaohs of the New Kingdom given the leadership and opportunities afforded to him through his co-regency with Hatshepsut. In truth, judging from the attack on her monuments, Hatshepsut was perhaps a little too good in concerns of being a pharaoh.
Hatshepsut, daughter of King Thutmose I and the pharaoh of Egypt, is a controversial figure who instigated diverse interpretations from historians over the years. As the longest reigning female pharaoh in Egypt who had ruled over twenty years in the 14th century B.C., Hatshepsut contributed greatly in her building program and had ensured the economic prosperity of Egypt during her reign after the death of her husband, Thomose II. Despite her achievements, Hatshepsut still remains to be a questionable personality to historians, evident in both ancient and modern interpretation of her in relation to her royal image and her involvement in foreign campaigns.
Throughout history, Egypt was one of the greatest societies for many reasons. The Egyptian society lasted from 3100 BCE to 30 BCE. It was ruled by multiple pharaohs, one of the most important being Queen Hatshepsut as she was the first female pharaoh in Ancient Egypt. In addition, the geography of the region helped the Egyptian people immensely as the Nile River provided a way of transportation improved soil conditions. Lastly, their architectural advancements made their society great as it created a way of spiritual life for all people. The aspects in which made Egypt great were Queen Hatshepsut, the geography of the region and their architectural advancements.
Ancient Egypt was ruled by a person called a Pharaoh. These Pharaohs were like kings and emperors. The Pharaoh in ancient Egypt was the political and religious leader of the people. They were about 170 pharaohs and they ruled from 3150BCE to about 31BCE. Out of 170 pharaohs, they were a few of them who stand out because of their accomplishment. A few pharaohs who stand out are Ramses II, Khufu, Hatshepsut, Akhenaten, and Senusret I. While these pharaohs were alive they contributed to their people by building pyramids, temples, sculptures, and creating literature. King Tutankhamun stands above the pack and is considered today by the majority of people as being the most famous and most well recognized Egyptian Pharaoh.
Archaeological images that convey Hatshepsut and Thutmose III effectively co-ruling and delegating Pharaonic responsibilities are indicative of their mutually supportive relationship. Hatshepsut acted as a co-regent to her stepson/nephew for at least fifteen years, and it is believed that they shared a peaceful and harmonious relationship. Thutmose III’s mother was of an unacceptably low status, hence allowing him to become a young King under the supervision of his stepmother, Queen Hatshepsut. The Kings eventually shared administrative, religious and military responsibilities, demonstrating that their relationship was cooperative and interdependent. Hence, the desecration and concealment of Hatshepsut’s building activities is not indicative

In addition in paragraph 14 it states,” So the people of egypt would take her seroucly she made herself look like a man in her role as pharaoh.” This quote shows the determination of hatshepsut and that she
In “Hatshepsut: His Majesty, Herself,” by Catherine Andronik, she informs the reader about Hatshepsut and her role as an effective female pharaoh in ancient Egypt. One supporting detail of her effective rule of Egypt is that she was a regent who became pharaoh. In paragraph eight, the author states, “Until Tuthmosis III was mature enough to be crowned pharaoh what Egypt needed was a regent, an adult who could take control of the country.” Another supporting detail that is in paragraph eleven, the author states,”As Hatshepsut settled into her role as regent, she gradually took on more and more of the royal decision-making.” Hatshepsut was more experienced then Tuthmosis because she had been training for it and made all of the decisions for Egypt. In paragraph eleven, the author states, “She appointed officials and advisors; dealt with the priests; appeared in public ceremonies first behind, then beside, and eventually in front of her nephew.” The
Determination, strong alliances, and keeping her family's dynasty alive were all the key components Cleopatra needed to restore Egypt. According to Grochowski “Cleopatra used any means necessary to complete her goals and protect the country she loved, known as Egypt” (Grochowski 1). Cleopatra acquired a bad reputation because of her background but she did many things to make Egypt her top priority. Although she was not fit to be the ruler of Egypt, Cleopatra did restore Egypt to former glory because of her determination, strong alliances, and hunger to keep her family’s dynasty alive.
Due to Cleopatra efforts, she made Egypt wealthier and more powerful. Cleopatra was misunderstood, thinking she was an evil temptress, the Romans refused to trust her. They believed she was a bad negative influence on the civilization. Cleopatra is of the ten queens portraits of women of power, Cleopatra is also known the evil woman in history. The evidence that the archeologists have been saying that Cleopatra was a women of powerful achievement. Since the fortune had it that Rome’s imperial regime was born from her defeat, Cleopatra played the role, as a unique as it was involuntary, of link between the Hellenistic and the Roman world. Her relationships with Julius Caesar and Marc Anthony permanently have impacted on Ancient Rome and Egypt. Her being with Caesar and Anthony led to deaths, Cleopatra had been part of Julius Caesar and Marc Anthony deaths. He began to make unwise decisions. Cleopatra was thus heir to a line of determined women who were often the object of sincere devotion on the part of the Egyptian people of inept or discredited. The early Cleopatra’s have not enjoyed the fame of their last ancestor.
Yes, she served politically as well, but there was no other motive. She only wanted to make Egypt an eminence amongst the other countries, and to follow her family’s legacy as the dynasty of Egypt’s rulers. Her main goals were to unify her country by stabilizing it and to enlarge her territories. She also managed to take all the power from her brother(s) and become the sole ruler of Egypt. This is important because it proves that she really was an ambitious leader. Cleopatra was in it for the fame and glory, as well as for the power that came along with it.This made her a fierce and respected leader of her time.
