Convinced that unnamed babies are not truly alive, King Tuthmosis I’s wife Ahmose immediately names her newborn daughter Hatshepsut. This tiny girl will one day rise above her name and become not just “the foremost of women” but ruler of all Egypt. Growing up in pharaoh’s palace, the young princess prepares for her future by learning the essentials of Egyptian religious, political, and social life. After twelve-year-old Hatshepsut’s father dies, she—following the royal custom—becomes queen by marrying King Tuthmosis II, the son of one of her father’s lesser wives. And when her husband dies eighteen years later, Hatshepsut ultimately becomes her nation’s divine pharaoh.

A Booklist Top-Ten Youth Book, Hatshepsut is one of many enthralling works by author, journalist, and lecturer Ellen Galford. Susan Spain’s superb narration enhances a balanced historical overview that sketches the life and times of a queen who—about 3,500 years ago—ruled for two decades as Egypt’s monarch.
