Hello,

Any idea of a book telling about her story in realistic way? I don't need a novel. Is there any book telling about just her life and rule?

Would you tell me the writer and the name of the book in case you know any.. read2

Thank you very much! angel10

Another one I recommend is Hatshepsut: From Queen to Pharaoh (Metropolitan Museum of Art Series) by Catharine H. Roehrig (Editor)

The amazon.com page includes some reviews:

Thanks, I'll order both books - both seemed to be quite good to get know with the lady. Smile

Great read, definite recommendation.
