One Complaint I have

I’m seeing a lot of people sharing images of statues of Pharaoh Hatshepsut with the caption “Queen Hatshepsut”– images created while she had assumed full control of Egypt as a proper Pharaoh. 

People don’t call male Pharaohs “Pharaoh’s son” or “Prince” after they’ve ascended the throne in their own right. To do so regarding Hatshepsut is not only incorrect, but disrespectful.

The most prominent female pharaoh, Hatshepsut reigned over Egypt for roughly 2 decades, undertaking building projects and establishing valuable new trade routes until her death in 1458 B.C.
The archaeologist Howard Carter discovered her royal tomb in Egypt’s Valley of the Kings in 1902. When he located her sarcophagus some years later, however, it was found to be empty. Carter also unearthed a separate tomb, known as KV60, which contained two coffins: that of Hatshepsut’s wet nurse–identified as such by an inscription on its cover–and that of an unknown female.
In 2006, a team led by Dr. Zahi Hawass set out to determine whether the anonymous woman in KV60 could be the missing queen herself. The vital piece of evidence was a molar tooth found in a wooden box bearing Hatshepsut’s name.
When Hawass and his colleagues compared the tooth to a gap in the mummy’s upper jaw, it was a perfect fit, leading the researchers to conclude that the search for Hatshepsut was finally over. She was was said to have dressed as a man and her statues and monuments depict her so.

The Mortuary Temple of Hatshepsut, aka the Djeser-Djeseru (“Holy of Holies”), is an ancient funerary shrine in Upper Egypt. Built for the 18th dynasty Pharaoh, it’s located on the Nile near the Valley of the Kings. It’s dedicated to the sun deity Amun. The main and axis of the temple is aligned to the winter solstice sunrise, which in our modern era occurs around the 21st or 22 December.
