Abstract: Throughout its three millennia of history, Egyptian civilization had only a few cases of women becoming true sovereigns of the Nile country, holding power in their own right. Their circumstances were, however, different and their periods of government contain many differentiating elements with respect to the government of their male counterparts. To better understand these rulers and how they exercised their power, we will study the cases of the most well-known and plausible pharaoh-queens: Meret-Neit, Neferusobek, Hatshepsut and Tausert. Despite the fact that the monarch's vision was undoubtedly linked to the masculine, these women managed to seize the power of the kingdom, and for this the strategies they had to follow make their reigns substantially different from others. All of them jumped to power through their association or bonding, in one way or another, with royal male figures that surrounded them, but then they were able to develop their plans and combined their feminine nature with elements of the masculinity associated with the royalty. Despite the few cases that occurred throughout the history of ancient Egypt, the mere existence of these rulers speaks to us of the possibility that women came to power in their own right in the country of the Nile, leaving a mark on the Egyptian history that helps us understand the position and consideration of women within the palace world of that time.
