Based closely on historical events, this sensuously beautiful, astonishingly evocative novel tells the story of one of history's most remarkable women, the first female Pharaoh of Egypt. Thirty-five centuries ago, Hatshepsut, the youngest daughter of the Pharaoh, was to marry her father's illegitimate son and heir to the throne, Thothmes, in order to cleanse the bloodline in accordance with Egypt's supreme law. Fearing his son's incompetence, Hatshepsut's father chose her as the heir if the unprecedented ascension by a woman did not inspire the priests to commit treason or instill enough hatred in the envious heart of her half-brother and future consort to have her put to death. Rich in historical detail, this account recalls the rule of one of Egypt's greatest queens who, under her father's guidance, assumed the throne at the age of 15 and ruled brilliantly for more than two decades.… (més)

Im 15. vorchristlichen Jahrhundert wird im alten Ägypten Prinzessin Hatschepsut geboren. In einer Zeit, in der Frauen von der Ausübung der Regierungsmacht ausgeschlossen sind, entwickelt sie sich zu einer mächtigen Herrscherin und krönt sich letztlich selbst zum Pharao. Doch ihre Herrschaft wird von Traditionalisten und dem legitimen Thronfolger Thutmosis bedroht.

Pauline Gedge widmet ihren ersten großen Ägypten-Roman einer der schillerndsten Figuren des alten Ägypten, der legendenumrankten Herrscherin Hatschepsut. Mit viel künstlerischer Freiheit und Fantasie schildert sie deren Vita und erschafft so ein buntes Sittenbild des höfischen Lebens im alten Ägypten.

Gedges historischer Roman weist aber auch große Schwächen auf: Oftmals wirkt Gedges Erzählung wie eine Kleine-Mädchen-Fantasie vom Prinzessinnen-Dasein. Im Gros eindimensionale Figuren tapsen durch eine durchschaubare Story, die allzu oft den Pfad der historischen Wahrheit verlässt. Hinzu kommt die Verwendung anachronistischer Begriffe. Wenngleich das Werk sohin keine große Literatur ist, unterhält es dennoch gut und gelingt es der Autorin bei allen Mängeln, den Leser ins alte Ägypten zu versetzen. Positiv erwähnenswert sind auch einige Schlüsselszenen im Leben der Hatschepsut, welche die Autorin mit viel Gefühl einzufangen im Stande war. ( )

If you love ancient history, especially the wonderful Egyptians, then this book is just what you need. What it lacks in characterization it makes up for in sheer fun. A fast read, and though it can hardly be faithful to history, Hatshepsut is just as one might imagine her to be: lovely as the dawn yet cold as the night, drawing you into herself yet keeping everyone at a distance. I feel so much more could have been done with her character, as her relationship with Senmut left much wanting, but the book was already long enough since it covered her entire lifetime. The story did get maddening at times and required more than normal suspension of disbelief, but it was absolutely fun, the detail was exquisite, the battle scenes well drawn, and the characters were full of life. Gedge is a wonderful writer. This is my first book of hers, but I will definitely be reading more! ( )

In ancient Egypt (I looked it up, and Hatshepsut lived around 1500 BC). Hatshupset ruled Egypt as a female Pharaoh (normally only a title/position for men). This is a fictionalized account of her life.

I seem to be in a minority for my opinion on this but… The first half was just not interesting to me. It was ok, but nothing more. It picked up somewhat in the second half, after her father died, with the power struggle between her and her half-brother. So, most of the second half, I would rate good, but there were still parts that lost my interest. It seemed, at times, like what happened was drawn out longer than it needed to be. I would have liked to know how much of the story was true, but there was no author’s note, unfortunately. All that being said, what an incredible woman, especially for the time. Decided on a rating between “ok” and “good”. ( )

I have done this from a loving heart for my Father Amun;
I have entered into his scheme for this first jubilee;
I was wise by his excellent Spirit, and I forgot nothing of that which he exacted.
My Majesty knoweth that he is Divine.
I did it under his command; it was he who led me.
I conceived no works without his doing; it was he who gave me directions.
I slept not because of his temple; I erred not from that which he commanded.
My heart was wise before my Father; I entered into the affairs of his heart.
I turned not my back on the City of the All-Lord, but turned to it the face.
I know that Karnak is God's dwelling upon earth; the August Ascent of the Beginning;
The Sacred Eye of the All-Lord; the place of his heart;
Which wears his beauty,and encompasses those who follow him.

Prayer composed by King Hatsepsu I on the occasion of Her Julbilee

She went to her couch early, signaling to her slave and slipping from the hall almost unnoticed while the food still steamed on the little gilded tables and the fragrance of the flowers, scattered everywhere, moved in an invisible cloud with her down the colonnaded walk. (Prologue)
Although the north wall of the schoolroom opened onto the garden, the prevailing summer wind did not blow between the dazzling white, color-splashed pillars.
After twenty years of struggle to rise, struggle to rule, struggle to hold onto what was hers, there was no longer any need even to think, and the grayness of uselessness threatened to engulf her. (Epilogue)
