Classic World of Darkness: 1400s BCE
- 1480 BCE - 1489 BCE: Thothmes III ("Born of Thoth") and his queen Hatshepsut summon the masons of Babylon, Hebrew architects, priests of Isis and Osiris, and a thousand-odd mysticks from the wilderness (including some strange people from a land later called Cathay). Together, the two rulers craft a fellowship of sacred Artisans and a priesthood of healers and diviners, as well as laying forth the nine Cornerstones to Creation. The two lodges become known as the Reed of Thoth and the Cupbearers of Isis.
- 1400 BCE: Thutmosis IV comes to the Sphinx, buried up to its neck in sand. He sleeps and dreams that the Sphinx tells him to free it from the desert sand, and he will be made Pharaoh.
Various sources state that the rulers involved are Thothmes III and his queen Hatshepsut. However, while Hatshepsut ruled alongside Thothmes III (and was actually the more dominant of the duo), she was not his queen. She was his father's wife (his mother was a minor wife named Isis).
This was likely a typo which perpetuated, and that the ruler in question is actually Thutmose (Thothmes) II. However it's possible in the World of Darkness that things worked a little differently.
Regardless, it seems that Hatshepsut was the real power behind the throne for both Thutmose II and Thutmose III, so in the end the argument is probably academic.
