Tatooine was a desert planet located in the Outer Rim Territories. The planet was part of a binary star system. It was the homeworld of Anakin Skywalker, the Chosen One, and his son Luke Skywalker. Anakin’s former master, Obi-Wan Kenobi, also resided on the planet after the Clone Wars ended, going by the name Ben Kenobi. The Hutt Cartel maintained a presence on Tatooine as well, with Jabba the Hutt owning a palace in the desert. Due to the lack of surface water, many residents of the planet instead drew water from the atmosphere via moisture farms.
KICKASS WOMEN IN HISTORY : [3/5] HATSHEPSUT
Hatshepsut was one of the most powerful women in the ancient world. She was the fifth pharaoh of the Eighteenth Dynasty of Ancient Egypt and she ruled longer than any other woman in Egyptian history. Hatshepsut was married to her sickly half brother, Thutmose II, and the two of them began to co-rule after the death of their father, Thutmose I, in 1492 BC In 1479 BC, Thutmose II died and Hatshepsut continued to rule by herself until her own death in 1458 BC. It is believed by many Egyptologists and historians that Hatshepsut was one of Ancient Egypt’s most successful monarchs. She commissioned many building projects and reestablished trade networks that had been disrupted by the Hyksos invaders of the Second Intermediate Period. Hatshepsut also led a large-scale expedition to the Land of Punt, a wealthy and sophisticated country to the south of Egypt. Hatshepsut is also believed to have led successful military campaigns in Nubia, the Levant, and Syria during her reign.
