    Who Was Nefertiti? Nefertiti could quite possibly be the most powerful queen in ancient Egypt. Nefertiti’s childhood is still a mystery. Most egyptolosts and archiogloists haven’t found actual facts to back up their statements on Nefrertiti’s childhood. Nefertiti was married to the pharoah Akenaten at about fifteen. Nefertiti was given a lot of power Queen Nefertiti has somewhat of a vague childhood. “What is so striking about Nefertiti’s life and work is that, even though her likeness – derived from Thutmose’s bust of her – is one of the best-known and most frequently reproduced in the world, and while she lived at a time when Egypt was the most cultured and most powerful nation on earth, remarkably little is known about her.” There is little written about the exact date and location of her birth, but she was born around 1390 B.C. Also, it is unclear about who her parents were specifically. Nefertiti’s parents are possibly Ay and Tey the Egyptian pharaoh and the wife of the pharaoh. Nefertiti also had one sister originally thought to be named Mutnedjmet, but later discoveries proved her name to be Mutbenret. Nefertiti possibly lived in Akhmim, located in Upper Egypt on the east banks of the Nile River.…

    I will compare and contrast the Sphinx of Hatshepsut with Haremhab as a scribe of the King. The Sphinx of Hatshepsut is particularly interesting to me for the fact that she was a women pharaoh in Egypt in a time where men and women were not considered equal. Hatshepsut means “The Foremost of noble ladies.” She reigned from 1508–1458 BC and was the fifth pharaoh of the eighteenth dynasty of Egypt. Hatshepsut came to the throne of Egypt in 1478 BC. Officially, she ruled jointly with Thutmose III…

    Hatshepsut With a ruling period of over 3000 years, Egypt has seen roughly 170 pharaohs, yet there are few outside of egyptologists that can name more than two or three off the top of their head. Not many remember these kings of the east, and it is even more difficult to when their mark on their own history was erased by their successors. Hatshepsut was one of the few, and by far one of the most successful female pharaohs in ancient Egypt. She was the first of them to seize total control of…

    Despite what many think, the pharaohs of ancient Egypt did not succeed each other as an unbroken, patrilineal chain by any means. By the Eighteenth Dynasty, the state of kingship had recovered is authority from the Asiatic ruling of the Second Intermediate Period. Hatshepsut, one of the most well-known female kings of Egypt, is a clear outlier to what one would expect from a typical pharaoh.

    I chose Nefertiti because she is one of the most powerful women in ancient history. She was the Great Royal Wife of the Pharaoh, Akhenaten, and therefore queen. As most pharaoh's had many wives, only the Great Royal Wife or chief consort was queen. It was the children of the Great Royal Wife whom inherited the throne, as well. She and her husband left a rather large mark on Egyptian history and Culture even changing the religion and capital of Egypt. Transforming the polytheistic religion into a…
