Episode 66: An Awkward Transition

Hatshepsut (Part VII): The End of Days

After a long life, and an accomplished reign, Maat-ka-Re Hatshepsut dies c.1473 BCE (regnal year 22/23 of Thutmose III).

We thank some of those who made her reign possible, explore her legacy, and touch on the strange situation of her tomb. Do we have her mummy? We explore that, too.
