Updated: Jul 5


In a story of love, ambition, and betrayal, the son of a paper maker rises to be the most powerful man in Egypt. Senmut, the Greatest of the Great, architect of Egypt's most beautiful temple, and lover of the great female pharaoh, Hatsepshut, recounts the tale of his rise and fall. Tutor to Hatshepsut's daughter, the ambitious Senmut helps his lover usurp the throne from Thutmose III and gains power as her favorite. The two bring Egypt peace and prosperity until their enemies and their own ambition proves their undoing.
