Hatshepsut is one of the most intriguing figures in history. She built great temples, led a great empire, and circumvented centuries of tradition and belief with startling effectiveness. And yet, her own people worked diligently to wipe her from their collective memory.

Today, you will watch a video about this incredible woman. Your goal is to organize your notes around the following guiding questions. Point form will suffice. I will be checking your notebook on Monday, so be ready.

  • What is Hatshepsut’s legacy?
  • Can a leader wiped from history by her own people really be considered great?
  • Are Hatshepsut’s tremendous accomplishments during her rule sufficient to prove her greatness?
