Episode 62b: The Divine Birth of Hatshepsut (Text)

Interlude: Amun Creates the Queen.

 

In a short break, we explore the tale Hatshepsut told about her origins. She ascribed her creation and birth to the King of the Gods, Amun-Ra himself. In this dramatic recount, we go through the whole story (as it survives).
