Queen Nefertiti Whose name means “beautiful came” is the king’s wife Fourth Amenhot  -Which became later Akhenaten- Pharaoh The eighteenth family Famous, protectors Tutankhamun. She was considered one of the most powerful women in ancient Egypt. She lived a short time after the death of her husband and helped Tutankhamun to take over the king, and this beautiful queen had a high status during the rule of her husband. She belonged to the eighteenth family and lived in the fourteenth century B.C. It happened with her husband, her name was erased from historical records and her pictures were tarnished after her death. Nefertiti is famous for the bust of her illustrated face and carved on a piece of limestone in one of the finest pieces of art from the ancient era and is the most famous drawing of Queen Nefertiti.



Its origins

The origins of Queen Nefertiti are uncertain and it is believed that she is the daughter and nurse of any army commander. Tiye, and he was often called “the father of God” and this suggests that perhaps his father was by virtue of his marriage to his mother, and in any case, Ai never mentioned himself as Abu Nefertiti. Although there are references indicating that the portrait of Nefertiti Sister Nutgett’s sister is decorated with the tomb of Ay.

Her role as a wife

Queen Nefertiti joined her husband in the cult of the new god Aten The strength of the sun disk and she and her husband were the mediators between the people and the furnace, and it is supposed to grant full blessing only when the royal couple unites, and Nefertiti during the first years of her husband’s rule changed her name according to changing her creed to Neferatron Nefertiti, which means “Aten shines because the beauty has come”.

Nefertiti is reminiscent of the bust of her illustrated face carved on a piece of limestone in one of the most magnificent pieces of art from ancient times and is the most famous portrait of Queen Nefertiti, and was found by the German Egyptologist Ludwig Borchardt On December 6, 1912, Porsche Tuthmosis sculptor In Tel el-Amarna.

Borchardt fled the complete (unscratched) statue to his home in the Zamalek district of Cairo, and from there he fled to Germany, hidden in broken, worthless pottery pieces, sent to Berlin For restoration.

There is another statue of Nefertiti’s head The Egyptian Museum It is made of red quartz and is decorated with touches of the outrigger. It is no less accurate than the head in Berlin, but it is less famous.

.  Mighty Aten,

.  Ankh ‘s Ba Aten, Which she married from Tutankhamun

Her life

Queen Nefertiti joined her husband in the worship of the new religion, which is worship Aten The strength of the sun disk, and she and her husband were the mediators between the people and the furnace, and it is assumed that full blessing is granted only when the royal couple unites. During religious and social reforms, I then moved with him to Akhenaten or Tel el-Amarna. She appeared with him during the ceremonies and rituals, and in family scenes, even in the traditional scenes of the military campaigns in which she was photographed eliminating enemies.

Her statue

Nefertiti is reminiscent of the bust of her illustrated face and carved on a piece of limestone in one of the most magnificent pieces of art from the ancient era and is the most famous drawing of Queen Nefertiti, and was found by the German Egyptologist (Ludwig Borchardt) on December 6, 1912, in Porsche The sculptor Thutmose in a Tell el-Amarna. Borchardt fled the complete (unscratched) statue to his home in a neighborhood Zamalek In Cairo, and from there he escaped to Germany Hidden in broken, worthless pottery pieces sent to Berlin for restoration, there is another Nefertiti bust. The Egyptian Museum It is a red quartzite decorated with touches of the outrigger and is no less accurate in making than the head in Berlin, but it is less famous. It is not known yet, is there a mummy for Queen Nefertiti or not? What is certain is that scientists found mummies in the secret room of Akhenaten’s tomb. In the nineteenth century, French archaeologist Victor Lorette discovered, when he opened a cellar wall, a side crypt containing three mummies, one for a man and two for women, one of them was younger than the other. At that time, these mummies did not attract much attention, they were photographed in 1907, and they are forgotten. But recently, scientists have had some doubts that one of these mummies is Nefertiti. In 2002, British researcher Joan Fletcher of New York University, an expert on mummies, declared that the remains of the young mummy belonged to Queen Nefertiti, and confirmed that this is an untold fact. Joy rejoiced that it was the coolest discovery in my life! She said that, after she was allowed to undergo the mummy, including X-rays. One evidence that one of these mummies is the “beautiful woman who came” is the high quality of embalming and anatomical similarity with descriptions of Nefertiti’s remains. At the very least, this is what Mrs. Fletcher saw in the members of the mummy in the neck and shoulders, and most importantly in his face. The mummy was bald – shaved head in order to wear a special wig. Fletcher appears to have found the wigs. However, this claim became the subject of controversy later contested by the Egyptian authorities. Tests also revealed the presence of traces of a leather belt printed on the mummy’s forehead. And traces of the presence of two earrings in the left ear were seen earlier on some pictures of the queen. Soon after, it was found near the mummy on her broken hand, and the mace was grabbed by it, and this, as is known, is a feature of the Pharaohs’ authority. Let Fletcher suspect that the remains of Nefertiti have been found. Contrary to the case with colleagues who questioned and believed that these remains were nothing but mummies of a young woman from the royal family, she died during the reign of Dynasty 18.


Dr. Zahi Hawass The former Minister of State for Egyptian Antiquities Affairs, who is considered the most prominent Egyptian scientist and who is now the Secretary-General of the Egyptian Supreme Council for the Protection of Antiquities, criticized the researcher Fletcher, stressing that the mummy that the researcher referred to is for a girl aged 16-20 years, while Queen Nefertiti was older Now Egyptologists are studying the mummy of the second lady from the tomb of Akhenaten. Here, too, it is possible to talk about the existence of similarities between her and the Queen, and it seems that the final word will be for DNA analysis. Such analyzes helped determine the personality of each of Jeddah Tutankhamun And Akhenaten himself, who was already a parent To Tutankhamun. Does the question arise as to whether the mummy is known as a symbol KV35YL Is Queen Nefertiti? Maybe. Or maybe not. Doubts about her motherhood are directed not only towards her but also towards Akhenaten’s sister. It is known that Nefertiti was his first wife.

The end of her life

One of their daughters died Meket-Aten, and their grief was depicted on her in some of the graffiti. After the death of their daughter, Nefertiti disappeared from the royal court and her daughter was dissolved Merit Aten She replaced her, and obtained the title of Great Royal Wife; after the twelfth year of rule Akhenaten Nefertiti has disappeared and there is no mention of her and is believed to have died and was buried in a cemetery Atoun’s sister It is also believed that Tutankhamun He moved her mummy with his father Akhenaten When I deserted Aton’s sister.





Her grave

Egyptologists have been unable to locate the tomb of Nefertiti during years of research after the discovery of the tomb of Tutankhamun. In the year 2015, Dr. Nicholas Reeves announced the University of Arizona He may have found the tomb of the aforementioned queen, and she may have been buried secretly inside the tomb of Tutankhamun because the tests showed that there may be an entry in the tomb of Tutankhamen. And that this door may lead to the burial place of Queen Nefertiti. Digital scanning showed that there are remains of two places that were used as doors, and thus Rives assumed the existence of a secret passage that would lead to other burial chambers, and he said that this was the reason most likely why Tutankhamun’s tomb was smaller than all the tombs of Egypt’s pharaohs.
