Upon the death of her father, Tuthmosis I, Hatshepsut became sole legitimate heir of Egypt. Egyptian radition demanded however, that only a male heir could ascend the throne. Hatshepsut married her half-brother Tuthmosis II, who died prematurely. Once again it was a stepson, Tuthmosis III, born of a concubine, who was crowned. Serving first as a regent for the young king, Hatshepsut assumed the royal title in the second year and ruled Egypt for two prosperous and peaceful decades.

This Queen Hatshepsut Egyptian Portrait Bust (18th Dynasty 1500 B.C.) derives from one of the statues placed throughout her magnificent funerary temple at Keir el Bahri which was intended to both legitimize and commemorate her rule. It is reproduced after an original in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York. Egyptian museum reproduction of Queen Hatshepsut is made from crushed stone and resin, limestone finish, and measures 12.5"H x 9.5"W x 7"D.
