Post 105 Hatshepsut’s Mummy

CAIRO (Reuters) – Egyptologists think they have identified with certainty the mummy of Hatshepsut, the most famous queen to rule ancient Egypt, found in a humble tomb in the Valley of the Kings, an archaeologist said on Monday…….. Several Egyptologists have speculated over the years that one of the mummies was that of the queen, who ruled from between 1503 and 1482 BC — at the height of ancient Egypt's power.

’07 June 26 Today on Yahoo there was an article that they think they found the mummy of Hatshepsut, When I saw the picture of the statue portraying her, tears filled my eyes. As I traced the outline of her face with my cursor, I had a feeling that I was connected to her, that she was a sister or a wife.

I was confused by what I was picking up and feeling, so I searched the web and to my surprise I found that she was married to her half brother Thutmoses II who died young and that she took over the throne and became Pharaoh.

Again there was a feeling of loss, of shattered hopes, dreams and desires and I felt that she tried her best to continue what we had planned.
