More powerful than Cleopatra or Nefertiti, Hatshepsut was once Egypt's greatest female ruler. In one of the strangest stories of ancient history, Queen Hatshepsut stole the throne from her young stepson, dressed herself as a man with a beard, and called herself pharaoh. Her power was absolute across Egypt… and then she vanished. Not only did she die mysteriously, someone systematically erased every sign of her existence: her name was chiseled from records, and her monuments were pulled down. Even her corpse is gone. For years, Egypt's pre-eminent archaeologist, Zahi Hawass, has been on the trail of this mystery.
