Summary

Fit for a Queen is inspired by the life of Hatshepsut, a highborn woman who ruled as a pharaoh in ancient Egypt. This tale of intrigue, farce, and sexual politics highlights a largely unknown story of an incredibly compelling African woman. Hatshepsut takes power and maintains control of the economic and cultural superpower of the ancient world. Her son in law, Thutmose III, battles her for the kingship, vowing to erase every trace of her rule from the historical record. Their epic struggle both influenced and has resonance with most hot-button issues about gender equality facing our world today.
