One of only a few women who ruled ancient Egypt as a king during its thousands of years of history, Tausret was the last pharaoh of the 19th dynasty (c. 1200 BCE), the last ruling descendent of Ramesses the Great, and one of only two female monarchs buried in Egypt's renowned Valley of the Kings. Though mentioned even in Homer as the pharaoh of Egypt who interacted with Helen at the time of the Trojan War, she has long remained a figure shrouded in mystery, hardly known even by many Egyptologists. Nevertheless, recent archaeological discoveries have illuminated Tausret's importance, her accomplishments, and the extent of her influence. Tausret: Forgotten Queen and Pharaoh of Egypt combines distinguished scholars whose research and excavations have increased our understanding of the life and reign of this great woman. This lavishly illustrated book utilizes recent discoveries to correctly position Tausret alongside famous ruling queens such as Hatshepsut and Cleopatra, figures who have long dominated our view of the female monarchs of ancient Egypt. Tausret brings together archaeological, historical, women's studies, and other approaches to provide a scholarly yet accessible volume that will be an important contribution to the literature of Egyptology -- and one with appeal to both scholars and anyone with an interest in ancient Egypt culture.

About the Author:


Richard H. Wilkinson is Regents' Professor of Egyptian Archaeology at the University of Arizona, director of the University of Arizona Egyptian Expedition, and editor of the Journal of Ancient Egyptian Interconnections.

Review:

one cannot but welcome a book-length tratment of a lady who has long lurked in the shadows ... Reign-specific studies are something that continue to be needed in Egyptian history and this is a useful addition to a still-scarce, albeit growing, corpus. * Aidan Dodson, Egyptian Archaeology *
