(Ramses). All things considered Ramses seemed to go a competent job of taking care of the matters of Egypt during his over sixty years of reign. He was very egotistical and conceited however, but Ramses was considered a god and taught that he was a god as the Pharaoh his whole life, so he would want to be remembered. To his people he was a god and to himself as well. The state of affairs was the best ever during his reign and during the whole ancient history of the country.

Nefertiti & Akhenaten Nefertiti Arguably, to those who are not very involved in the study of ancient Egypt, Queen Nefertiti is perhaps better known than her husband, the heretic king Akhenaten (Amenhotep IV). It is said that even in the ancient world, her beauty was famous, and her famous statue, found in a sculptor's workshop, is not only one of the most recognizable icons of ancient Egypt, but also the topic of some modern controversy. She was more than a pretty face however, for she seems to have taken a hitherto unprecedented level of importance in the Amarna period of Egypt's 18th Dynasty.

.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. .

Theory two is that she only portrayed herself in manly clothing with beards in art, statues and portraits. However, most had titles or something to indicate that she was a woman. Her father was king and a very successful one. He died when she was twelve and she then married her half-brother. Queen
