Thutmose II (thŭt´mōz, tŭt´–) or Thothmes II (thŏth´mēz, tōt´mĕs), reigned c.1495–1490 BC, king of ancient Egypt, fourth ruler of the XVIII dynasty and the son and successor of Thutmose I. Unlike Hatshepsut, his half-sister whom he married, Thutmose II did not have a royal mother. Before long Hatshepsut gained equal power and relegated him to the background, calling herself "king." After his death, Hatshepsut became regent for Thutmose III, his son by a minor queen.
