Hi Anna.
I'm pretty sure she was the only female Pharaoh. Of course there were zillions of Queens who reigned without a husband Pharaoh - but they all called themselves women. They never went as far a Hatshepsut, who wore the false beard of kingship and wore the male crowns and all that. The other alone Queens called themselves Queen.
But then again, I may be wrong, though she must have been a VERY obscure Queen for me not to have heard of her.
