“It is not precise to call Hatshepsut a queen, despite the English understanding of the word; once she took the throne, Hatshepsut could only be called a king. In the ancient Egyptian language, the word queen only existed in relation to a man, as the “king’s woman.” Once crowned, Hatshepsut served no man.”

We’ve got a brand-new essay on the kick-ass, cross-dressing Egyptian ruler Hatshepsut. Just don’t call her a queen.
