Join Dr. Kara Cooney, professor of Egyptology, for a look at a time in ancient history when women ruled the world. They’re often neglected in the history books, but their power and influence is undeniable. Cleopatra built alliances with warlords of the Roman Empire. Neferusobek was the first woman to definitively take the title of king. Nefertiti brought a fractured Egypt together. What can we learn from how these women ruled?
