“Hatshepsut”

Hatshepsut was one of the most powerful Black Women in the ancient world. She was the fifth King of the Eighteenth Dynasty of Ancient Kemet and she ruled longer than any other woman in Kemetic history.

Hatshepsut was married to Thutmose II, and the two of them began to co-rule after the death of their father, Thutmose I, in 1492 BC In 1479 BC, Thutmose II died and Hatshepsut continued to rule by herself until her own death in 1458 BC. It is believed by many Egyptologists and historians that Hatshepsut was one of Ancient Kemet most successful monarchs.

She commissioned many building projects and reestablished trade networks that had been disrupted by the Hyksos invaders of the Second Intermediate Period. Hatshepsut also led a large scale expedition to the Land of Punt, a wealthy and sophisticated country to the south of Egypt. Hatshepsut is also believed to have led successful military campaigns in Nubia, the Levant, and Syria during her reign.
