A Queen, Pharaoh in her own right

Hatshepsut, a women who held the position of Pharaoh in the 18th Dynasty, built a mortuary temple fit for any king. She took power at the sudden death of her husband, Thutmose II, and stepped into history. She assumed the role of Pharaoh and left her mark, which later was struck from the record like Akhenaten and Nefertiti some 200 years later.

Matija Grguric has brought her temple to life. Deir el-Bahari is in western Thebes, and was inspired by the funerary temple of Mentuhotep II. Hatshepsut herself was buried nearby in the Valley of the Kings, and believed to have been lost to the sands.
