Queen Nefertiti

Nefertiti was an Egyptian queen and the Great Royal Wife of Akhenaten, an Egyptian Pharaoh.

Nefertiti and her husband were known for a religious revolution, in which they worshiped one god only, Aten

The mysterious ancient queen ‘Queen Nefertiti’ was one of the most powerful women in the ancient times.

Nefertiti was an Egyptian queen and consort of King Akhenaten who remains a mystery to researchers even today.

It is believed that she lived an epoch from around 1370 B.C. to 1330 B.C.

A bust of Queen Nefertiti discovered in 1912 is one of the widely acknowledged symbols of antiquated Egypt

Queen Nefertiti was known as Lady of the Two Lands. As the mother of the young King Tutankhamun, she ruled alongside her young son as Egypt’s queen.

Her visage has been immortalized in many a statue, but to this day no one is certain where her remains are buried.

ueen Nefertiti’s tomb has never been found, but recent high-definition scans by archaeologists show

it is possible the former Queen of Egypt may be entombed in a secret chamber hidden behind King Tut’s tomb.

3 mysterious things about Queen Nefertiti:


(1) : Nefertiti Revealed?

Study of Tutankhamun’s 3,300-year-old tomb in 1922 revealed some wall markings that indicated a hidden doorway.

Also, the size of Tutankhamun’s tomb is smaller than what it should have been for the final resting place of an Egyptian king.

The hidden doorway and other facts suggested that there could be another chamber and the Tomb was originally made for the queen.

It will be an astonishing archaeological discovery if it proves true.


(2) : Mystique Disappearance

Queen Nefertiti disappeared from the historical records around the 12th year of Akhenaten’s rule.

There are several theories behind this. Some think she died because of Plague.

Some speculate she was elevated to the status of co-regent “equal in power to the Pharaoh” and began to dress like a man.

Another theory introduces the idea of two co-regents, a male son, Smenkhkare, and Nefertiti under the name Neferneferuaten.

Nefertiti’s disappearance is still a mystery.


(3) :Nefertiti’s One Eye Cause For Speculation

One of the most famous depictions of Nefertiti shows her with one blank eye, considered a blight on an otherwise beautiful face.

There are widely varying speculations about the circumstances that led to the blank eye that include an apprentice failing to complete the bust,

river blindness that led to an opaque cornea, or simply damage that occurred over the years.

By far the most entertaining theory is that the artist who was working to complete the bust fell in love with Nefertiti and,

after his advances were rebuffed, left the eye blank as a symbol of here inability to see the true nature of the artist’s love.
