1. I was the eldest daughter of their majesties King Tutmosis and Queen Ahmose. When I was young I married my half brother and after my father's death we reigned together for 14 years. My nephew became King upon my husband's death but he was still quite young so I acted as Regent. Over time I gathered support and eventually usurped my nephew's position as King of Egypt. I built myself a tomb at the foot of the cliffs in the eastern corner of the Valley of the Kings. After my death in 1411 BC, my nephew assumed power and did everything within his power to obliterate the memory of my reign. Who was I? Hint

In Year 5 of my reign ,I won a spectacular victory over the Hittite forces. I undertook further campaigns against the Hittites but realized that I could not hold the northern reaches of Syria so I signed a peace treaty with the new Hittite king in Year 21 of my reign. My many primary and secondary wives would give me over 100 children though it was my 13th son, Merenptah, who would eventually succeed me. I died in Year 67 of my reign at the grand age of 92. Who was I? Hint

In 343BC Persia, with the aid of thousands of Greek mercenaries, he captured Pelusium and it wasn't long until Memphis itself fell triggering the second occupation of Egypt by Persia.
