Main description:

A biography of the longest-reigning female pharaoh in Ancient Egypt and the story of her audacious rise to power in a man's world.
 
From birth, Hatshepsut was one of the most important women in the Mediterranean world, the daughter of a general who usurped Egypt's throne and a mother with ties to the previous dynasty. Hatshepsut's job was to bear sons who would legitimize the reign of her father's family, but she was instead given one daughter. Although problematic for other women of her status and heritage, her failure to produce a male heir was the twist of fate that would pave the way for her inconceivable and serendipitous rule.

Scholars of Ancient Egypt have long speculated about why Hatshepsut's monuments were destroyed within a few decades of her death, effecting the near-erasure of the reign of Egypt's second female pharaoh. Constructing a rich narrative history using the artifacts that remain, Kara Cooney, a noted expert on Ancient Egypt, presents her own theories on how Hatshepsut methodically consolidated power and ascended through numerous religious and political positions to the title of king at just twenty years old - and why she fell from public favor just as quickly. In addition to cross-dressing, gender-bending Hatshepsut's significance as an exceptional historical figure, her tale also proves to be a thoroughly modern one. The Woman Who Would Be King explores the obstacles facing women who seek positions of prominence and prestige in a society that equates authority with masculinity, and our complicated reactions to women in power.
