Queens of Ancient Egypt

Women on the Throne of the Pharaoh

Mamdouh Eldamaty

The ancient Egyptian civilization was distinguished from the rest of the world's civilizations by its diverse scientific, artistic, literary, social and political manifestations. Through this diverse of the Egyptian civilisation, the Egyptian women enjoyed a distinguished position that was not enjoyed by any other woman in the other societies and human civilizations. 

The rulers of ancient Egypt were almost men. However 22 women through the history of Egypt held sway over Egypt, including Hatshepsut, Nefertiti, Cleopatra VII and Shajr al-Dur, who are still remembered today. Other females ruled as well, although the historical record for some of them is scant at best; some went to great lengths to strengthen their claim to the throne, they all played significant parts in the ancient Egyptian history. 

Regarding of this issue, the lecturer wrote an Arabic book deals with some of the biography of Egyptian women and their status in ancient Egypt from the Pharaonic period through the Ptolemaic time until the reign of the great Sultana Shajr al-Dur at the end of the Ayyubid era and the beginning of the Mamluk era.
