Johns Hopkins Professor Betsy Bryan discusses Hatshepsut, Queen and God’s Wife of Amun.
By 1470 B.C.E., Hatshepsut emerged as King, technically reigning alongside her stepson and nephew Thutmose III. As he was still a youth, Hatshepsut dominated their coregency. As ruler she constructed numerous edifices honoring the great gods of Thebes, Amun, and Mut. For Mut, she rebuilt the temple and renewed festival rites involving sacred drunkenness. Hatshepsut’s devotion to the Mut Temple connects her to Karnak, Luxor, and her glorious Deir el Bahri across the Nile.
