Hapshetsup's temple/tomb,Der-el-Bahri


Since she was the first female pharaoh, she acted and dressed like a male so that the people would accept her. Which they did of course, in fear of being excecuted because of defying the pharaoh. In some statues she depicted herself as a male but with her face and a slimmer waist.

Her nephew/step-son, Thutmose 3 became pharaoh when she died. He tried to deface her by taking down momuments, etc. in her name. Possibly, he did this because he wanted to get credit and become more powerful.
