Moses' Step-mother Found

Hatshepsut's Mummy Identified

Hatshepsut was more than likely Moses' adoptive mother, the daughter of Pharaoh who found him in the river when she was bathing (Exodus 2:1-10).

Doug Petrovich has a stellar article about the defacing of Hatshepsut's image by Amenhotep II, the possible Exodus Pharaoh, because of her involvement with rescuing Moses from the river.

Wikipedia says that she was one of the most successful female pharaohs and that she died of metastatic bone cancer. Interesting stuff.
