$8.00 $18.00

Consort of the Female Pharaoh tells the story of the world's first radical feminist whose ambitions were whetted by the power that she wielded over her father, Pharaoh Thut-Moses I as well as over her brother and husband, Pharaoh Thut-Moses II. When Thut-Moses II dies , Hat-Shep-Sut, with the help of her consort, Senen-Mut, seizes the throne. But in order to hold it, Hat-Shep-Sut must  fend off her most powerful and deadly rival, the High Priest of Amen-Ra. And Amen's high priest is no weak adversary. Bold and cunning, the high priest had even attempted to assassinate Hat-Shep-Sut's own father, Pharaoh Thut-Moses I.  To overcome the High Priest’s conspiracies Hat-Shep-Sut  ushers in the solar cult ___ the worship of the Egyptian sun god, the Aten.

  History claims that Pharaoh Akhenaten, who resembled a woman, ushered in the worship of the one God. Actually, Pharaoh Hat-Shep-Sut, who was a real woman, introduced worship of a single diety to the world.
