Hatchepsut: The Female Pharoah

Hatchepsut: The Female Pharoah Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Egypt?s Queen?or, as she would prefer to be remembered, King?Hatchepsut ruled over an age of peace, prosperity, and remarkable architectural achievement (c. 1490 b.c.). Had she been born a man, her reign would almost certainly have been remembered for its stable government, successful trade missions, and the construction of one of the most beautiful structures in the world?the Deir el-Bahri temple at Luxor. After her death, however, her name and image were viciously attacked, her monuments destroyed or usurped, her place in history systematically obliterated. At last, in this dazzling work of archaeological and historical sleuthing, Joyce Tyldesley rescues this intriguing figure from more than two thousand years of oblivion and finally restores the female pharaoh to her rightful prominence as the first woman in recorded history to rule a nation.

Synopsis:

Investigates the life of female pharoah Hatchepsut, whose existence remained unknown up until the 1820s. The text combines archaeological and historical evidence in an attempt to create an accurate portrayal of the woman king who dressed in men's clothes and wore a false beard.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. [256]-257) and index.

About the Author

Joyce Tyldesley, holder of a doctorate from Oxford University, is Honorary Research Fellow at the School of Archaeology, Classics, and Oriental Studies at Liverpool University, England. She is the author of Hatchepsut: The Female Pharaoh and Daughters of Isis: Women of Ancient Eygpt.
