His son was raised in his place as king of the two lands. He ruled upon the throne of the one who begat him saying that divine kingship spirit is moving from one male body to another to infinity that Thutmose III taking the throne is the best solution His sister, the God’s Wife of Amen Hatshepsufulfilled the needs of the the Two Lands following her counsels. She was served; Egypt was obedient. The divine granaries were efficient and overflowing. The prow rope of Upper Egypt was moored in the south. The stem 1 rope was the beneficence of Lower Egypt. A mistress of decrees and words, effective where her counsels. The two banks were content with her speech. Her majesty praised me and she loved me. She knew my excellence in the palace. She provided me with things, and she made me great. If they didn’t have Hatshepsut to step out as regent for a twoyear old king, the Thutmose family won’t continue With her entourage, engineer to make the line continue or else Balance of power between King and the elites is more equal Regency Old Egyptian method of maintaining dynastic succession Ideally, mother of young king, rules on behalf of her own son Hatshepsut not mother of thutmose III Isis = mother of thutmose III Hatshepsut’s regency = extended (political as God’s Wife of Amen, her supporters placed her into such power because Isis had lower education and power level) Also gets my job to extend her 14 or 15 years Undated rock cut graffito from early in the regency, maybe years 2 3 Obelisks ordered “through the power of her majesty” Called “the one to whom Ra has actually given the kingship” Big deal to cut obelisks, red granite out of a corey, slowly stepping towards that kingship Name of Hatshepsut Hnmtimn in cartouche, Daughter of king, Wife of King, God’s Wife of Amen (always uses religious ideology to gain power) Week 5 Lecture 2 Notes Very new concept that demands plebeians and middle classes’ revolts > not the case of Egypt since it is an agricultural state, elites don’t have to care about the opinions of the common people PPT temple scene: carved down south, away from the rest of the elites Hatshepsut presented to deified Senwosret III as a queen, supporting the young king Thutmose III in year 2, Semna temple Constantly reinvent herself former type of God’s wife of Amen (formal title but that doesn’t really give her the King title), her King title is formed informally 2 A different kind of kingship ideological publications to everyone that she’s there to stay and on par with Thutmose III Undated Sinai stela: queen with Maatkara name + Hatshepsut United with Amen Hatshepsut doesn’t date anything specifically making it hard to record stuff Avoiding to mention the actual King depicting herself alone in the temple The only way to date something, is to associate with King, but Hatshepsut doesn’t want to therefore vaguely we know that her avoidance of her nephew’s status When Hatshepsut actually claim the kingship y ear 2 oyear 7 (we going to go with year 7 that she starts using the tile Nswt bity the king of upper and lower egypt) Maatkara truth, soul, sun god As Thutmose III gets older, Hatshepsut needs to change her status even gender more Autobiography of Ahmose Pennekhbet, ElKab ● Says, “I attained a good old age while I was king’s man, being in the favor of their majesties, my love being in the palace, I.p.h. for me, the God’s wife repeated favors, the king’s great wife, Maatkara, true of voice. I brought up her eldest daughter, the princess Nefrure, while she was a child at the breast.” ● Listed with other kings, but not as a king Block of dismantled building of Thutmose II, Hatshepsut offering wine to AmenRe as King of Upper and Lower Egypt ● offering wine to god = normally only king shown doing this ● called “king of upper and lower egypt” ● called Maatkara ● queen’s dress + king’s wig and atef crown Image depict her dressing like a woman but crowned like a king, Hatshepsut offers wine to Amun Recared Relief of Hatshepsut from Buhen Temple ● Hatshepsut originally wore queen’s dress, but with striding legs ● recarved as king’s shendyt kilt 3 Senenmut’s rock cut sanctuary at Gebel Silsila, just before coronation “Live, the King’s first born daughter Hatshepsut, may she live, beloved of Amen, Lord of the Thrones of the Two Lands, King of the Gods” link to Thutmose II ignored heir to Thutmose I instead Claiming descent to power from her father and ignoring her husband (IDEOLOGICAL) 4
