|Two tombs were were built and/or begun for Hatshepsut. When she
was still "Great Royal Wife" the building of a rock tomb was started in
the Wadi Sikket T‚quet el-Zaid, a side valley of the Wadi Gabbanat el-Qurud.
However, the tomb (WA D) is unfinished and most likely the work had been stooped
when Hatshepsut became king.
|The new tomb (KV20) for the king was built in the
Valley of Kings. Some Egyptologists believe that she probably took over the tomb built for her father and
extended it for a double burial - for herself and her beloved father, Thutmosis
I. Others are convinced that she started her own tomb and decided to move the
mummy of her father from KV34 to be buried with her.
