This book didn’t just cover the lifespan of Cleopatra itself but also quite resourcefully shows the historical aspects of events that happened before and after Cleopatra’s lifetime. With Cleopatra being such central and well-known figure, not just back in her time but even now, she had a very strong impact on history herself and through her relationships with Caesar and Mark Anthony. Michael Grant went back as early as 323 BC to the death of Alexander the Great to explain the rise of the Ptolemaic Era through Ptolemy I and to show the proof of Cleopatra’s Hellenistic heritance. In detail he showed the hardships Caesar had to face while staying in Egypt with the Egyptian Queen but he also explained the happenings that lead to Caesar arriving

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.
This inspired colonists to want to break away from Britain and become their own country. However as the war progressed it became a civil war because colonists divided between loyalists and patriots and fought almost themselves. This was the result of colonists disagreeing on the decision to cut ties with Britain, since many colonists thrived off of economic ties to them. As the war ended it became an ideological revolution. Colonists inspired by Enlightenment thinkers fought for these ideas and by the end of the war they were focused on forming a new government.
In “Hatshepsut: His Majesty Herself”, by Catherine M. Andronik, she informs the reader about Hatshepsut and her role as an effective female pharaoh in Ancient Egypt. A supporting detail of her effective rule is in paragraph 8, when the text states, “what Egypt needed was a regent, an adult who could take control of the country.” This shows that Hatshepsut had practice as a regent before becoming a pharaoh. Another supporting detail that shows that Hatshepsut had practice before her reign.”she was fit for the job, Hatshepsut, perhaps just fifteen years old, had been training for since her earliest days by her father’s side.” says paragraph 9. This shows that Hatshepsut would be an excellent regent, since she had been trained by an accomplished pharaoh, Tuthmosis I.

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
In paragraph 11, the text 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.” This quote explains she was a good leader because she took all the responsibilities a pharaoh would take. Also in paragraph 12, the text states, “Egypt required a strong pharaoh to ensure maat. Hatshepsut could be that pharaoh—even if she did happen to be a woman.” This quote explains that Hatshepsut was a strong pharaoh because she was willing to take the responsibility a leader or pharaoh would do. In conclusion, Hatshepsut was a strong leader because she took the responsibility that any pharaoh would

That brand new idea was partially her leading as the first women president, but also the encompassing idea that we need to break down social barriers in America. Her rhetoric focused around this idea throughout her entire campaign. A perfect example of this would be in Mrs. Clinton’s concession speech. In her speech Mrs. Clinton remarks, “It was about the country we love and building an America that is hopeful, inclusive, and big-hearted.
The inscription on Matilda 's tomb at Rouen, France, reads: "Here lies Henry 's daughter, wife and mother; great by birth, greater by marriage, but greatest in motherhood." Matilda the Daughter- Great by Birth This quote above is fact all true though still debated. Matilda (also known as Maud) was the only daughter of Henry I of England. Her mother was Queen Matilda and she was the older sister to William the Atheling, heir to the English and Norman thrones. Although there are whispers of how legitimate Henry I claim for the throne is, one such that he killed his brother for it, there is no dispute that he now has it and is the king of England and Duke of Normandy.

Thutmose II and Hatshepsut ended up having a daughter named Neferure, but the male heir was an infant that a concubine named Isis. A concubine is pretty much like a mistress. The male heir was named Thutmose III, who was Hatshepsut’s nephew and who she would later on marry after Thutmose II dies. Hatshepsut would later on rule jointly with Thutmose III as his regent. Hatshepsut was actually Egypt’s first
Yet, in the graphic novel there is no such thing as Phil, it never stated how he became so strong. Speaking of no Phil, there also wasn’t a Meg in the graphic Novel.

In 1479 B.C.E. Thutmose II passed the power of Pharaoh to co-ruler Hatshepsut-his sister/wife-because his son, Thutmose III, was too young.

Scholars found defaced statues and portraits of Hatshepsut.
