Nefertiti – Pharaoh Queen of Egypt

titlenef_thumbHow does Nefertiti one of the most powerful and beautiful queens of ancient Egypt vanish from history? With the help of her enemies, of course. One thing that egyptologists agree on is, when it comes to Nefertiti, she had a lot of enemies. She was the wife of pharaoh Akhenaten and maybe ruler in her own right after his death. In 1912 an amazing limestone sculpture of her face was dug out at the royal retreat of Amarna. It is more than 3,200 years old. Her name means “The beautiful(or perfect) woman has come.” Some scholars think Nefertiti traveled to Egypt from a different land. Others think she was royal by birth. Some think she didn’t have royal blood at all. A man named Ay killed the boy king (I think the boy king is her son.)
