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.
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.
Hatshepsut’s reign as pharaoh strongly emphasised her close relationship and devotion to the god Amun. According to Lawless, Hatshepsut did more than any other Pharaoh to raise the status of Amun beyond all other gods. She achieved this by emphasising her filial relationship with the god, most evident in the divine birth scene in her mortuary temple at Deir El Bahri and through the Oracle, which was later inscribed on the walls of the Red Chapel at Karnak. These pieces of evidence are vital in explaining Hatshepsut’s devotion to Amun. However, the relationship between Hatshepsut and Amun was a reciprocal arrangement as through the glorification of her father she promoted the priesthood and rewarded them for their support towards her legitimacy which led to their growth in wealth and political power during her reign.
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 proving her leadership was she acted as regent,” an adult who can take control of the country.” Another detail to support her leadership was in paragraph eleven,” She appointed officials and advisors dealt with priests.” This quote explains that Hatshepsut was a great regent who tackled obstacles head on and with a lot of maturity. Another detail about Hatshepsut's successful reign was in paragraph 17 it states,”Hatshepsut reign was peaceful. Instead of war and conquest, Hatshepsut built monuments within her country to proclaim its power.” This quote that she wanted to work on the inside of egypt and make it peaceful instead of war and conflict. 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
All of the pharaohs had a serious impact on Egypt. Hatshepsut was the first woman pharaoh. Ramses II was made a god. King Tut was a very famous ruler who was crowned at the age of nine. In fact, He was the youngest pharaoh. The most significant pharaohs from the new kingdom were Ramses II, King tut, and Hatshepsut.
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.
Cleopatra and Joan of Arc are two of the most powerful and influential women to ever have lived. Although each one led for their own purposes, and in their own style, the consequences of their actions still have ripples in today’s world. Whether it be because of Cleopatra’s beauty or ruthlessness, or Joan of Arc’s faith and purity both women are considered iconic figures in the global community. Throughout time both Joan of Arc and Cleopatra have been documented as extremely influential characters in history. Cleopatra and Joan of Arc were iconic in different ways, for different reasons but it is undeniable that without them, the world wouldn’t be as it is today.
I’m soon to be Pharaoh Dalton of Dank Memes, and i’m going to compare and contrast Pharaoh Hatshepsut and Pharaoh Ramses II.
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. During her reign, she proved she was worthy by becoming one of the “most ambitious builders in Egyptian history” (Cole and Symes 34). However, after ruling for 21 years her legacy was tested. Scholars found defaced statues and portraits of Hatshepsut. Some believed Thutmose III was slighted by Hatshepsut and he defaced her image. Although, through more research they believed Thutmose III’s son, Amenhotep II, had more motivation. Hatshepsut’s image may have been defaced because of lack of knowledge in hieroglyphs, gender roles, and the hope for power.
Hatshepsut was considered to be the first importance woman who ruled long-term over Egypt as a king in ancient Egypt .She belonged to the 18th dynasty of pharaohs.Evenmore remahkably, Hatshepsut achieved her power without bloodshed or social trauma.
