Tragedies Surround the Lives of Egyptian Queens
Queen Nitocris, sister of Merenre II, sought revenge against high Egyptian officials who murdered her brother. She had built a large underground hall connected to the Nile
river. She invited all the officials who murdered her brother to a banquet and had the floor dropped, drowning all the traitors. This is how the mysterious 6th dynasty ends.

Queen Sobekneferu, sister of Amenemhet IV, dressed like a man. Queen Hatshepsut also dressed like a man. Sobekneferu reigned ended mysteriously just like the 6th dynasty ended.

Queen Hatshepsut dressed like a man for 7 years. She supposedly had an affair with her royal administrator Senenmut. Hatshepsut's name was struck from all Egyptian records, for she was the princess who saved the infant Moses. Hatshepsut might have been murdered.
Queen Tausert was in love with her Syrian butler Bay. Like Nitocris, with Sobekneferu and queen Hatshepsut there was anarchy in Egypt after Tausert dies. (After Hatshepsut the anarchy occured in the 10 plagues striking Egypt in her nephew king Thutmose III's reign.)
Queen Cleopatra was in love with Antony and she was involved in a power struggle with the Roman empire. Cleopatra lost and committed suicide and Antony fell on his sword.
Egyptian scribes wrote so positively about their kings and so negatively about their queens.
