“Queen Hatshepsut is the only woman who ruled as a pharaoh. Other women ruled as a queen, but she’s the only woman to rule as a queen and a king simultaneously. She claimed she was not born of an ordinary person, but she was the daughter of a god and a goddess and that gave her the right to rule as a king and as a queen.”
