it's Queen Hatshepsut, you can tell from the head dress, queen's did not wear them only Pharaoh's, now here come's the tricky bit, she dressed like a man and wore a fake beard so the Egyptians thought there Pharaoh was a man, She was married to king Thutmose II and on his death she made herself Pharaoh and not letting the old kings son her nephew to become king, but after 20yrs of rule she died or was she murdered by her nephew? then all records of Queen Hatshepsut disappeared and most of the cartouches with her name on were erased from history
