The Woman Who Was King

Queen Hatshepsut, the “Female Falcon,” became King of Egypt and her successor tried to erase her from history.

The title of this article is not a misprint; Queen Hatshepsut was the King of Egypt. The concept of Queen did not exist in Ancient Egypt. I refer to Hatshepsut as Queen in this article only to help the modern reader.
