What parts of history have you remembered on your travels? . . .
Queen Hatshepsut 👑 was the 2nd historically confirmed female pharaoh. Although the status of women in ancient Egypt was higher than in any other ancient civilization, the notion that a woman could be king was abhorrent to the Egyptians. Yet, a woman did become king and not just an ordinary king. She ruled Egypt for about 20 years as one of the most successful rulers. --- 📝 The literal meaning of her name is 'Foremost of Noble Ladies', she was integral in expanding trading relations, as well as being one of the most prolific builders in Egypt. Under her reign, Egypt explored, built and grew! ---Fact: after her death, her step son who became King Thutmose III destroyed many of her statues and erased her name from all the walls! ・・・

7 Influential African Empires
(Part 2 of 7)
The Land of Punt

Few African civilizations are as mysterious as Punt. Historical accounts of the kingdom date to around 2500 B.C., when it appears in Egyptian records as a “Land of the Gods” rich in ebony, gold, myrrh and exotic animals such as apes and leopards. The Egyptians are known to have sent huge caravans and flotillas on trade missions to Punt—most notably during the 15th century B.C. reign of Queen Hatshepsut—yet they never identified where it was located. The site of the fabled kingdom is now a hotly debated topic among scholars. The Arabian Peninsula and the Levant have both been proposed as potential candidates, but most believe it existed somewhere on the Red Sea coast of East Africa. In 2010, a team of researchers tried to zero in on Punt by analyzing a mummified baboon that its rulers once gifted to the Egyptian pharaohs. While their results showed that the remains most closely matched animals found in modern day Ethiopia and Eritrea, the precise location of the Land of Punt has still yet to be confirmed.

Templo mortuário da Rainha Hatshepsut, construído nas rochas de Deir el-Bahari, oeste do Nilo, cerca de 1.500 anos a.C e encontrado todo coberto de areia séculos depois, o que ajudou a preservar as cores de algumas pinturas nas paredes, teto e colunas • Queen Hatshepsut Temple, built on the rocks of Dahir el-Bahari, west bank of the Nile, around 1.500 BC and discovered after centuries covered by sand which helped to preserve a feel of the colors of the paintings on the walls, ceilings and columns.
