Amina was probably the granddaughter of the Sarkin King Zazzau Nohir. Zazzua was one of the Hausa city-states that dominated the trans-Saharan trade after the collapse of the Songhai Empire. At the age of sixteen, Amina became the heir apparent to her mother, the ruling queen of Zazzua. When her mother died around 1566, her younger brother Karama became King. Apparently it was Amina’s choice as she was the leading warrior of the Zazzua cavalry and wanted to continue that as her military achievements brought her great wealth and power.

It is quite hard to imagine, but human civilizations along with the development of human culture already exist for thousands of years. Many things have changed with the course of time and many civilizations simply died out, leaving after themselves numerous open questions and riddles for historians and anthropologists. One of the most interesting ancient civilizations with outstanding culture was Egypt. Among all its cultural peculiarities the idea of woman and her role in society seems to resemble the modern one in many aspects. The life of Egyptians was closely connected with their gods and cults of them.
One of the most well known things about ancient Egypt are the pyramids. Most of these pyramids were built to be tombs for Pharaohs, ancient Egyptian rulers and their families. Over 130 pyramids have been discovered to date. Some of the most famous Egyptian pyramids can be found at Giza, which is on the outskirts of Kairo. Several of these pyramids are counted among the largest structures ever built.
Ancient Egyptian architecture is the construction of ancient Egypt, one of the most influential civilizations throughout history, in which industrialized a vast array of diverse structures and great architectural monuments along the Nile, including pyramids and temples. (Ancient Egyptian architecture, 2015). The architecture of Ancient Egypt - a country of two parts, which is Upper and Lower Egypt - reflected two major characteristics of Egyptian culture. As a result of these two issues, a huge amount of Egyptian architectural designs, building materials and labor force were devoted to the construction of huge Pharaonic grave complexes, identified as Pyramids, designed to preserve the Pharaoh 's body and defend his belongings after death, so as to facilitate his passage into the after-life. (Ancient Egyptian Architecture Series:Architecture of Ancient Egypt, n.d.) The great architectural achievements of the past are built of stone.
In 9th century BC, Shammuramat was a Queen of Assyria and the first lady to rule without a man. According to historian Gwendolyn Leick, “This woman achieved remarkable fame and power in her lifetime and beyond.’’. She was powerful enough to have her own obelisk inscribed and it is accepted that she initiated a number of building projects and personally led military campaigns. If we glimpse into Egyptian History, the name Nefertiti (c. 1370 - c. 1336 BCE) comes up first. She was the wife of the pharaoh Akhenaten and together they shaped Egypt into most cultural and most powerful nation during that time.
Also in paragraph 13, the text states, “These women had not ruled long or well, and neither had had the audacity to proclaim herself Pharaoh. Hatshepsut would be different.” This quote explains that she was an effective ruler.

Although Brutus justified the killing of Caesar to the citizens of Rome, it seems as if he was not able to justify it to himself. As a result the ghost of Caesar was not the revival of Caesars spirit but rather it was physical manifestation of Brutus' guilty conscience. The death of Portia seemed to have a profound effect on Brutus as well, this can be clearly recognized as Brutus was visibly sadder after hearing of his wife's death. This sadness could be attributed to the fact Brutus thinks that he himself is responsible for Portia's death. It was revealed in the story that She killed herself because she was worried about Brutus absences and that Octavius and Mark Antony had made themselves to strong.

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.
Egyptian Art The Significance of the Afterlife in Ancient Egypt The tomb structures represent the great architectural designs of ancient Egypt. Interestingly, the development of the tomb structures dates back to the time of Predynastic Architecture (3100 BCE),when the Egyptian societies in both Lower and Upper Egypt followed different burial customs. This made the tomb buildings to varygreatly at the time. The Old Kingdom Architecture (2686-2181BCE) period saw the introduction of stone in the construction of unique monumental structures such as massive pyramids that contained burial chambers.While,the period of the New Kingdom Architecture (1550-1069BCE) was represented by unique, in terms of the tomb structure, designs. Hagen and Rainer statethat the New Kingdom Architecture was featured by the construction of temples, granite statues, rock-built tombs and wall reliefs
