Smithsonian article: September issue

Guess who is featured on the cover of this month's issue of the Smithsonian magazine. Hathshepsut! On the cover is the caption, Solving the Mystery of Egypt's Hatshepsut: Why Was Her Reign Erased From History.

Weren't we right on target when we chose Reflections in the Nile for our September discussion?

The title of the article by Elizabeth Wilson is, The Queen who would be King. Senenmut is mentioned in the article as her influential chief minister. There are different views as to whether or not they were lovers or if he were just her favorite minister and confidant.
