Moses heard about the death of Hatshepsut while he was in exile, and her death is recorded in his writings.
Exodus states, "During that long period, the king of Egypt died." The sole ruler in Egypt was now Tutmoses III, and with Hatshepsut out of the way, and the protection she probably afforded the Israelites no longer available, Tutmoses suppressed them in a most cruel fashion.
Tutmoses I was the third pharaoh of the 18th dynasty.
The first pharoah was Amoses 1570 to 1553 BC, followed by Amenhotep 1553 to 1532 BC, who was the father of Tutmoses I.
