Queen Hatshepsut, King Thutmose III to be part of Pharaohs' Royal Parade
Published in Ahram Online on 24 - 03 - 2021

The mummies of ancient Egyptian Queen Hatshepsut and her stepson King Thutmose III will be part of the Pharaohs' Royal Parade on 3 April
The remains of the two royals are among 22 mummies that will be transferred during the parade from their current place at the Egyptian Museum in Tahrir to their final exhibition destination at the National Museum of Egyptian Civilisation (NMEC) in Fustat.
Queen Hatshepsut, whose name means "Foremost of Noble Ladies," was the daughter of King Thutmose I.
Hatshepsut's achievements as a powerful queen and then as a ruling pharaoh have made her one of the most famous figures in ancient Egyptian history.
She was married to her half-brother, Thutmose II, and became Egypt's regent, a monarch in all but name. For several years, she ruled the country on behalf of her stepson.
In ancient Egypt, a woman could not become pharaoh; however, Hatshepsut, as the daughter of one pharaoh and the wife of another, claimed the purest of royal bloodlines and soon declared herself pharaoh.
Her mummy was discovered in 1903 in tomb number KV 60 in the Valley of the Kings in Luxor.
Her stepson king Thutmose III was too young when he took the throne after the death of his father.
King Thutmose III

King Thutmose III hence he began his reign as monarch in name only. His stepmother Hatshepsut served as his regent for several years, and then declared herself pharaoh, relegating the young Thutmose III to the role of junior king.
For the next two decades, the young monarch grew into what would become his eventual role as one of the great warrior pharaohs of the New Kingdom. After her death, he launched a series of military campaigns that solidified Egypt's position as one of the region's superpowers. His battle at Megiddo is considered a model of military strategy.
The mummy of the king was discovered in the Deir El-Bahari Cache (TT 320), west of Luxor in 1881.
