They shared the power until she found a way to take control. She manipulated everyone and said Thutmose I had meant for her to rule the whole time. Even though she was a woman and the Pharaoh is usually a man she still did not change rules. Under her rule she put together a project of building a funeral temple and tombs to honor the dead. She had turquoise mined for jewelry and trade items. When Hatsheput died Thutmose III became the new Pharaoh and he tried to act like she never existed.
