In the first of this "Women Who Were Kings" series, we uncover the life of the first great woman in history. Hatshepsut--throne name Maatkare--was one of the greatest pharaohs of Ancient Eygpt, and remarkably--a woman.
In a civilisation that didn't allow women to rule, how did Hatshepsut ascend to the throne? What did she achieve, and what were her policies as a female politician? What mark did she make on Egypt as its female king? What is her story?
Properly researched, lavishly illustrated, and with footnotes and a bibliography, this graphic novel biography is suited for anyone with an interest in women rulers in Ancient Egypt. For Ages 10+.
