• Thutmose
New Kingdom


Definition: First woman pharaoh. She was the daughter of Ahmose, the wife of Thutmose II. His son, Thutmose III, became pharaoh at a very young age; and his mother, Hatshepsut, was named regent. Six years later, in 1473 B.C., she declared herself pharaoh. She ruled by herself for 15 years, then disappeared about the time her son decided he wanted the throne for himself.
