Biography and accomplishments or why Thutmose III was famous: He became pharaoh at a very young age of about the age of 7, and Hatshepsut who was both his aunt and stepmother, ruled as regent until he became of age. During this period Hatshepsut assumed the title of King of Egypt and even wore male regalia of a pharaoh and donned the traditional false beard of a pharaoh. He had no alternative but to accept the role of his stepmother and was probably lucky to have survived with his life. He clearly received substantial military training which allowed him to spend his formulative years in the army and foreign campaigns leaving Hapshepsut control of Egypt. He must have truly resented her role as after her death Thutmose III an attempt was made to remove Hatshepsut from Ancient Egyptian historical records. A became a great warrior king who launched successful military campaigns Canaan, Syria, Nubia and Mitanni in Mesopotamia increasing the wealth and power of Egypt.
