14 days to Halloween: Hatshepsut

The most ruthless ruler Egypt ever knew, Queen Hatshepsut commandeered the throne from her stepson Thutmosis III and declared herself both Queen and Pharaoh of Egypt. Her reign lasted for about 22 years during the 18th dynasty of Ancient Egypt and it is believed that after her death Thutmosis attempted to erase all record of her from public monuments, all traces of her mysteriously disappeared, even her mummy and her final resting place remained a mystery.  
Her body has not yet been identified with certainty, although it is believed that one of two female mummies found in Tomb KV60 in the Valley of the Kings in Egypt belongs to her, as considered with definite proof by Egyptian archaeologist Zahi Hawass
