WHAT DOES QUEENING AN EMPIRE MEAN?
HAVE YOU EVER HEARD OF QUEEN
Well for those of you haven’t let me give you a brief background on who she was.
Hatshepsut (1479-1458 BCE) she was the first
female ruler of ancient Egypt to reign as
Queen and a pharaoh.
She is also said to be one of the most successful
Monarch in Egyptian history. She was cited to be
the most controversial and celebrated woman
of egypt because of what she did in her ruling.
She held many high honors such as Amun (Gods
wife) The highest honor a queen can have.
It was when her husband/Brother died not having
a of age son to become ruler yet, Hatshepsut
during her seventh year of her regency she changed
the rules and had her self crowned herself pharaoh
of egypt. She did everything a pharaoh would do
in power even changed her look as far as growing
a beard. She had all her statues changed to give her
the look of pharaoh for history.
As pharaoh she did everything the same as her male
counter would have such as building projects, military
exhibitions helping bring wealth into the land. She
is also known for one of most important expeditions
known in history Hatshepsut expedition to Punt(modern
HATSHEPSUT had so many highlights in her ruling all
to be noted in her temple at Deir el-Bahri. Her demise
Was found to be from an abscess from a tooth extraction
her stepson took rule after her.
He did not like what she stood for and was
the one who dismantled her statues
and anything dealing with her legacy. Hatshepsut
name still prominent in Egypt’s history.
Hatshepsut is a major influence to the Queen of
what i do brand, Her confidence in being ruler of many
things is what this brand entails. Wether it’s from
work life to home life we are the ones in charge.
Being that the Queen in every part of history is the
most important piece to any empire we give gratitude
to the ones who paved the way before us.
