Title in English: 
Foremost of Noble Ladies Hatshepsut
Abstract in English: 
Hatshepsut (or Hatchepsut) meaning, Foremost ‎of Noble Ladies, was the fifth pharaoh of the ‎eighteenth dynasty of Ancient Egypt. She is ‎generally regarded by Egyptologists as one of ‎the most successful pharaohs, reigning longer ‎than any other woman of an indigenous ‎Egyptian dynasty.‎ Hatshepsut was considered one of the ‎greatest rulers, male or female of her time. Born ‎during Egypt’s 18th dynasty, she was able to rise ‎from princess to queen to pharaoh. Her rise to ‎the throne, though against ideals of the time, ‎might have inspired others, such as Cleopatra. ‎During this time she was able to expand trade, ‎watch the Egyptian economy grow and improve, ‎and build and restore temples of Egypt. ‎Hatshepsut did this by claiming right of male, ‎being in the image of the Sphinx. She strapped a ‎golden beard to her chin and often dressed in ‎male clothing.‎
