Mummy!

A woman monarch who called herself a pharaoh, dressed like a man and also wore a false beard, Hatshepsut ruled more than 3,000 years ago, wielding more power than two other women of ancient Egypt, Cleopatra and Nefertiti. The mummy identified as Hatshepsut shows an obese woman, who died in her 50s, and probably had diabetes and liver cancer, Dr Hawass said. Her left hand is positioned against her chest, a sign of royalty in ancient Egypt.
