Queen Nefertiti was the wife of the revolutionaky king Amenhotep IV who later entered history as Akhenaton. The couple were married in their youth and they had 6 daughters. Although Akhenaton was the father of Tutankhamun Nefertiti was not his mother. In actual fact it has now been established that Tutankhamun's mother was in fact his father's sister. Nefertiti embodied the image of a woman who helped her husband to fame and respect by purposely staying in the background. The couple then implemented the revolutionary idea of a single, highest god (which Tutankhamun reversed when he became Pharaoh.) The actual date of Nefertiti's death is unknown since she is no longer mentioned after the 13th year of her marriage. To date as to what actually happened has been a mystery. However recent archaeological excavations have found, what is believed to be her tomb, behind that of Tutankhamun's.
All my silver Egyptian jewellery is truly authentic and origianl. I purchase it directly, and personally, from manufacturers in Cairo and it is all hallmarked.
