I connected FU HAO to the Egyptian pharaoh Hatshepsut. She was one of the first female pharaohs and ruled over her people for 20 years. Some believe that Hatshepsut was one of the most successful rulers of her time. I felt as if she shared some similarities to FU HAO because she held important roles not usually given to females, and after her husband had died she assumed full power. Hatshepsut focused on ensuring economic prosperity, building and restoring monuments.
The Ruler after Hatshepsut removed all evidence of her reign, but we still found her body. It is important to remember her because it shows how much she did for her people, and she demonstrated what a good leader really should be. The leader also made many temples and monuments in order for many people to come and observe. Through the building of these temples the economy heavily prospered and the citizens grew to like her. In these temples Hatshepsut also wrote many inscriptions of her ruling which helped the new kings know what to do and what not to do, as history repeats itself.
She was the wife of Akhenaton who is famous for the changes he made during his rule over Egypt. Even so, many people don 't know that my mother was the true power behind the throne. Her political importance is evident in carvings made of her accompanying the king
Both of the associations led by very powerful women wouldn’t stop until they could see the bigger picture where although you were a different gender you were treated equal as men and had the same rights.

Hatshepsut is considered to be Egypt’s most successful pharaoh in history. Hatshepsut is really interesting because she rose to power in a male dominant area. Egyptians had been so used to male pharaohs, that when Hatshepsut became pharaoh she had to change the way she dressed like how she wore the fake
He was a general in the army, one of the best, and the pharaoh at the time Amenhotep I had no sons. Amenhotep believed that Thutmose was a very intelligent and powerful, he thought that he was a perfect fit for pharaoh, so he became pharaoh. He was wed to Ahmose, and she only gave birth to girls. The names of the girls were Hatshepsut, and Nefrubity. Instead of making one of the girls the pharaoh, he made his other son (that he didn’t have with Ahmose), Thutmose ii.

While the Ishtar gate had many religious beliefs it also shows off the accomplishments that the society had and was able to reach. For example, Nebuchadnezzar had issued this wall to be built because he believed that Babylon had the potential to become one of the most beautiful and powerful cities to ever exist. They we 're not able to become as powerful as they wanted and their society was shadowed by the great Egyptian culture.

For Babylon this wall was an accomplishment and showed that they had many intellectual ideas along with the ability to express themselves, which earlier societies we 're not able to do as they were too busy focusing on staying alive with what they had in life.
Polygamy, the practice of having multiple wives, was the most common form of marriage in early civilizations. Polygamy was common for many reasons, such as, having more wives increased the amount of children one could have which was necessary as children provided help around the home, Polygamy was also common as there were more women compared to men and in the past women were believed to have needed a man to help them. The case for an autonomic association between Christianity and monogamy is weakened further by the fact that socially imposed monogamy was first established in ancient Greece and Rome, centuries before Christianity even existed. Greek and Roman civilizations practiced Monogamy, the practice of having one wife, but their form of monogamy included the men having lovers on the side, which they often preferred over their wives. Even if Greek and Roman laws prohibited any man from having more than one official wife at a time, the practice of having partners on the side of marriage was still tolerated.
