Great Pharaohs of Ancient Egypt: Thuthmose III

Considered to be one of Egypt’s greatest pharaohs, Thutmose III was the sixth ruler of the 18th Dynasty, with a reign lasting from 1479 to 1425 BC. Thutmose III took the throne after his father’s death, but was not considered old enough to rule on his own. Queen Hatshepsut, his father’s wife, was acting as regent, later declared herself Pharaoh, and spent two decades ruling Egypt until her death. Once Hatshepsut died, Thutmose III was able to rule on his own.
