This is the story of Queen Hatshepsut, one of the most charismatic of the rulers of ancient Egypt. She lived in the Nile Valley almost three and a half thousand years ago and, in what was mainly a man's world, proved her ability to rule one of the world's most amazing civilisations with skilful efficiency and vision. Her story is one of romance, intrigue and outstanding achievement which brought great prosperity to Egypt and assured her of a place in history as one of the most powerful female rulers of all time. Her death and the events that followed her demise are shrouded in mystery but she left a lasting legacy both in the elegant monuments that she built and in the fascinating account of her personal life and relationships.
