Artist's description:

Hatshepsut was the fifth Pharaoh of the 18th-dynasty who was one of the handful of female rulers in Ancient Egypt and her reign was the longest of all the female pharaohs. Her funerary temple (pictured in the background) was inspiration for Frank Lloyd Wright and his "Art Deco" architecture, which still stands as a tribute to her incredible rise to power. Hatshepsut was married to her half-brother, Tuthmosis II, with whom she usurped and then took over his position as ruler, go so far as to dress like a king and wear a false beard.

To support her cause she claimed the God Amon-Ra spoke, saying "Welcome my sweet daughter, my favorite, the king of Upper and Lower Egypt, Maatkare, Hatshepsut. Thou art the King, taking possession of the Two Lands."
