"And who are you, that you do not know? I am His Majesty, Maatkare Hatshepsut. Esteemed pharaoh over the upper and lower lands of Egypt." -- Queen Hatshepsut

Queen Hatshepsut (1507–1458 BC) was the fifth pharaoh of the Eighteenth Dynasty of Egypt. She was the second historically confirmed female pharaoh, the first being Sobekneferu. (Various other women may have also ruled as pharaohs regnant or at least regents before Hatshepsut, as early as Neithhotep around 1600 years prior.) Hatshepsut came to the throne of Egypt in 1478 BC. Officially, she ruled jointly with Thutmose III, who had ascended to the throne the previous year as a child of about two years old. Hatshepsut was the chief wife of Thutmose II, Thutmose III’s father. She is generally regarded by Egyptologists as one of the most successful pharaohs, reigning longer than any other woman of an indigenous Egyptian dynasty. According to Egyptologist James Henry Breasted, she is also known as "the first great woman in history of whom we are informed."

DetailsEdit

In game, Queen Hatshepsut is unable to prepare her husband's mummy due to the theft of the Book of the Dead and hasn't yet taken the throne.

Hatshepsut later appears during the final chase as one of the characters who confronted Carmen Sandiego.
