Enjoy these interesting facts of the rich history of Ancient Egypt.
Not only were men and women equals, but women could also become King if a monarch died without any sons. That's not a mistake. The women were Kings, not Queens, as the word was not gender-specific. The King's wife was considered the Queen. At least three women ruled Ancient Egypt successfully: Sobekneferu, Hatshepsut and Tausret.
Cleopatra is one of Ancient Egypt's most famous inhabitants and rulers, and today, she remains a cultural icon. But what many people don't know is that this young woman with the storied past wasn't even Egyptian. Even though her family ruled Egypt for hundreds of years, she was actually Greek and the first in her family to speak the Egyptian language.
Few people realize that the Ancient Egyptians were quite advanced for their time, and many of their scientific and mathematical inventions are still in use today. In addition to irrigation, they include toothpaste, building practices, surveying land, quarrying, glass, planked boats, makeup techniques, medicinal practices, calendars, plows, paper, pen, keys, locks, board games and musical instruments.
Unlike many other cultures and civilizations, men and women were legally equals in Ancient Egypt. Women were expected to fill in for their husbands when it came to business matters, and they could own land and conduct business on their own.
