“In today’s political landscape, female rulers are few and far between, But thousands of years ago in ancient Egypt, women reigned supreme, controlling the authoritarian state as power brokers in times of war and peace. Even with their success, these political masterminds were just as often used as pawns in a patriarchal society. Through the seductive lens of six remarkable female pharaohs―including Hatshepsut, Nefertiti, and Cleopatra―celebrated Egyptologist Kara Cooney explains how these women ruled and what made ancient Egypt unique among history’s greatest empires. Her remarkable book illuminates the complexities of their unusual power―and why its like has never been seen since.”
