Using his stunning photographs, Kenneth will introduce you to Neithhotep, who was considered the first ruling queen, Nefertari, Nefertiti, Hatshepsut and Cleopatra VII, who was the last of the female pharaohs. You’ll travel from 3200 BCE through 12 BCE to discover how these extraordinary “Queens of Egypt” lived in a world dominated by men.
