Hat-Shep-Sut was Egypt’s greatest Pharaoh
So why has history tried to erase her memory for the past 3500 years?

Does it have anything to do with the fact that Egypt passed from the
Lunar Cult to the Solar Cult during her reign?

Pharaoh Maat-Ka-Re Hat-Shep-Sut Khen-Met-Amen, Horus Powerful of KA, Female Horus of Fine Gold, Two Ladies Flourishing of Years, Divine of Diadems wants to be venerated as Foremost of Distinguished Women. Hat-Shep-Sut has always wanted to become Pharaoh, now she wants to be followed by another female Pharaoh and is determined not to allow any man to interfere with her plans …
Not Senen-Mut, her Consort and the father of her child…
Not Thut-Moses, the Royal Heir that many in Karnak hope will replace her …
Not even Seth-Mesy, Amen’s high priest, who demands absolute obedience, even from
The Two-Lands of Upper and Lower Egypt reel under the invasions of Nubians from the South and Hyksos from the North. Consort of the Female Pharaoh tells the story of how the 18th Dynasty of Ancient Egypt successfully pursued a War of National Liberation to become the world’s first superpower. It is also tells how the love between a brilliant commoner and an ambitious royal princess transformed the world.

Hat-Shep-Sut prepares for her ordeal.
I’m as strong as any woman in my family, she tells herself. Today I must prove it. After today no one will doubt that Pharaoh Maat-Ka-Re Hat-Shep-Sut is sole ruler over the Two-Lands. And no defiance of Pharaoh will go unpunished!
Hat-Shep-Sut plans great changes for the Two-Lands. Pen-Nek-Heb’s predictions of a new epoch inspire her to initiate new traditions and new ideas. The new epoch predicted by Iunu’s stargazers will be Hat-Shep-Sut’s epoch____ the time when women rise up and end male domination. And the foremost of distinguished women, intends to usher in the new epoch by exercising more control over her well intentioned but common-thinking Senen-Mut.
