Later, she started to depict herself clearly as a male. Anyways, she died (or was exiled) around 1479 BC, and Thutmose III finally became a new pharaoh, destroying much of the evidence of Hatshepsut’s existence. In conclusion, Hatshepsut, a King Herself, remains a mystery even nowadays. Her bloodline shows that she was the only possible successor after Thutmose I, but it is yet to be understood when exactly she became a pharaoh, why she wanted to look like a man, and what happened to her body after
.Hatshepsut is unique in that she was the first woman to take the title of King regnant or King in the absence of a word or title for Queen regnant. As a royal female, Hatshepsut already had great influence as a king’s eldest daughter, as the previous king’s sister and wife, and as a regent for the present king. . Through the course of her reign, Hatshepsut’s image significantly changed this may be due to the fact that Hatshepsut, in many ways had to prove herself as successful ruler who was capable of following in her father’s footsteps Early representations show the Queen in all the trappings of the Pharaoh, but with full femininity in her appearance. As her reign continued, this gradually evolved into a more and more masculine depiction eaccording to the French scholar Tefrin.
However, the evidence is not conclusive and further evidence is still being researched. After reading multiple articles written by honored Egyptologists and historians I believe that the mystery is proven more so that Queen Hatshepsut was merely a woman who reigned over the throne. She presented herself as such in reality but in portraits, artwork and monuments she wanted to be viewed as a traditional king. However, the titles always carried a name to let you know she was in fact a
Although Helen was the most beautiful woman in the world, she was manipulated and deemed secondary to her male counterparts. Helen can be looked at as a woman who had no say so in how she wanted to run her life and was manipulated throughout the years. In the Iliad the Greek Goddess Aphrodite played the key role in controlling Helen. Helen was taken from her husband Meneleus and could not return. Aphrodite being the goddess of love was the one who took Helen from him, and forced her to stay with Paris of Troy, which sparked the Trojan War.
Ay sometimes referred to himself as "the God's father", suggesting that he may have been Akhenaten's father-in-law, though there is no specific references for this claim. However, Nefertiti's sister, Mutnojme, is featured prominently in the decorations of Ay's tomb in the Valley of the Kings on the West Bank at Thebes (modern Luxor). However, while we know that Mutnojme was certainly the sister of Nefertiti, her prominence in Ay's tomb clearly does not guarantee her relationship to him. Others have suggested that Nefertiti may have been a daughter of Tiye, or that she was Akhenaten's cousin. Nevertheless, as "heiress", she may have also been a descendant of Ahmose-Nefertari, though she was never
Why Did the Roman Republic Collapse? Keven Johnson Professor L. Reams History-1 70006 10 December 2012 Why Did the Roman Republic Collapse? The Roman republic was founded following the deposition of the last king of Rome. It was said that the Romans, tired of the tyranny of a monarchy, vowed that a king would never again rule Rome. This occurred sometime around 509 BC, and led to the creation of a new form of government called a republic.1 However, as the centuries passed, the republican dream slowly began to fade.
Medea cause more damage to others in the play; however, Jason is the reason Medea causes damage to others. Jason left Medea for a princess, after Jason marries the princess Medea wanted revenge for him leaving her. “For Jason had turned from her; he calls the old bond a barbarian mating, not a Greek marriage he has cast her off.” (Euripides 85) Since Jason caused damage to Medea by leaving her and re-marrying and abandoning his children , she wants to make Jason feel as much pain as

The other gods decided that the match was a tie. Many of the gods were sympathetic to Horus, but remembered his anger toward his mother for being lenient to Set, and were unwilling to support him completely. The gods who formed the court decided to write a letter to Osiris and ask for his advice. Osiris responded with a definite answer: his son is the rightful king, and should be placed upon the throne. No one, said Osiris, should take the throne of Egypt through an act of murder, as Set had done.
