Hatshepsut was always seen weak; but did have some military expedition. She pressured herself to be a male ruler, and as Redford concludes, there could have been four or more campaigns waged during Hatshepsut and Thutmose III’s joint reign. These include: her expedition to Punt, A campaign a. , This shows how strong and forceful of a queen Hatshepsut perused and succeeded to be. In order for Hatshepsut to be regarded as a true Egyptian king Hatshepsut had to portray herself in a certain as well as draw a clear division between her previous role as Queen regent and her role as king and, follow tradition and have herself depicted as a conventional king. Tyldesley states That “by causing herself to be depicted as a traditional
Even though little was known comedy seems to fill in the unknown facts and dialectic of her life. Mrs. Henry wants to clarify Aspasia existents and why she was misunderstood. Aspasia was not only a woman beauty but an important woman of Athens history in fifth century but also a person who played a key role in the intellectual development of Greece. I believe that she captivated this through known history facts through her first marriage which lasted a couple of years to Lysicles and then her relationship sexual ownership to Pericles. Mrs. Henry research on Aspasia birth and education leads us to believe that he was in line of lintier with the Aristocrats.

#BestQueenEver Queen Elizabeth I became queen at the age of 25 and she ruled until her death in 1603. Queen Elizabeth I was a spectacular queen, including the circumstances surrounding her crowning, her defeat of the Spanish Armada, and her relation to the play Julius Caesar. She was the last of the five Tudor Monarchs, and her rule was longer and more prosperous than any of the kings in her time as stated in the “Elizabeth I” article. Queen Elizabeth I had a very rough childhood, but when she was finally succeeded in 1558 she was the greatest queen that had ever ruled. Queen Elizabeth I was the second child of King Henry VIII and her mother was Anne Boley, but at the age of three, her father nullified the marriage (Ellis).
Document Analysis Assignment #2 Dr. Ken Draper HI 141 November 18, 2011 Rebecca Garnett The Alexiad: Anna Comnena and Alexius I The Alexiad, written by Anna Comnena, has been considered an invaluable document to historians when discussing the Byzantine Empire during the 11th and 12th centuries. Comnena, probably the most prominent Byzantine historian of the European Middle Ages, was in fact not only female, but also a princess. As the daughter of Emperor Alexius I, and a strong scholar, Anna Comnena was the first woman known to write the histories of an empire. Her husband, Nicephorus Bryennios, was also a historian of the Byzantine Empire, but after his death, Comnena took up the responsibility to write a very detailed account of her father’s reign. Her works are full of details about daily life at court, the deeds of her family, and the exchanges between the Byzantines and western crusaders during the first crusades.
The most damming evidence which supports Agrippina’s power and authority can be seen in the numismatic evidence with silver and gold coins displaying Agrippina and Nero face to face and of equal size on the obverse in 54AD and showing them side to side in 55AD. Agrippina’s political dominance began to decline in Nero’s later reign, as Burrus and Seneca begin to take more control over Nero and rid her of her political influence. This distance between mother and son begins by Nero’s defiance of his marital arrangements to Octavia, falling in love with Acte, a slave girl. Nero then stopped Agrippina appearing on coins and ordered the exile of her ally, Pallas. “Agrippina, loving power more than Nero” (Scullard), began supporting Brittanicus’ claim to the throne utilising the support of the Praetorian Guard.
Agrippina the Younger Agrippina was one of the most influential women of her time. She had achieved powers and honours, previously unachievable by Roman women. Even Livia, wife of the great Augustus Caesar, did not hold the range of powers bestowed on Agrippina herself. The reason behind her power is her use of her incredible linage to impose herself upon the political scene. Part of the reason behind Agrippina’s power was her close proximity to some of the most powerful men in the ancient world, she was the great-granddaughter of the great Augustus: who also had achieved a deified status, daughter of Germanicus: said to be the reincarnation of Apollo himself, sister of an emperor (Caligula), wife of an emperor (Claudius), and mother of an emperor (Nero).
Historians of the first and second centuries AD, such as Josephus, Plutarch, Appian and Cassius Dio wrote for political purposes and portray Cleopatra as a strong political figure although their views are strongly biased towards Roman interests. As time passed, the attitude towards Cleopatra began to change as Europe entered the Renaissance, with Shakespeare’s Cleopatra being a much more passionate and tragic figure than the depiction of previous historians. Today, the typical modern belief depicted by films is that Cleopatra was a passionate and sexy queen of the Nile who drove men wild with desire and seduced every great leader she encountered. However Leonor Varela depicts a very different Cleopatra in Franc Roddam’s 1999 production than that played by Elizabeth Taylor in Mankiewicz’s 1963 production. The Augustan poets Horace and Virgil are slanted towards Rome, as both were poet laureate to Augustus.
However, the rights which were won seemed to exclude women. Many women did not like this and they wanted to be equal to men and they fought their own war of independence to receive that right. It started off small, but eventually grew into a big movement. Many average women would be remembered as someone great and their names would shine throughout history. One of these women was one known as Susan Brownell Anthony.
Today’s society is overly concerned with the way men and women look. There is a near impossible standard set for the way both genders are meant to look, and there are a lot of problems caused over them. Men are “supposed to” have defined abdominal muscles, bulging biceps, a rugged and strong looking jaw line, and always be taller than their female counterparts. In the same way, women are expected to have long, soft, flowy hair, a perfect hourglass figure, long and lean legs, flawless skin and exquisite make-up. Not only are these standards physically impossible for some men and women to achieve, they are completely unfair.
