Hatshepsut: A Graphic Novel (Women Who Were Kings (a Graphic Novel Series))

by Queenie Chan

In the first of this “Women Who Were Kings” series, we uncover the life of the first great woman in history. Hatshepsut–throne name Maatkare–was one of the greatest pharaohs of Ancient Eygpt, and remarkably–a woman.

In a civilisation that didn’t allow women to rule, how did Hatshepsut ascend to the throne? What did she achieve, and what were her policies as a female politician? What mark did she make on Egypt as its female king? What is her story?

Properly researched, lavishly illustrated, and with footnotes and a bibliography, this graphic novel biography is suited for anyone with an interest in women rulers in Ancient Egypt. For Ages 10+.
