QUEEN OF EGYPT (1370-1330 BC)

Nefertiti was a legendary Queen of Egypt and wife of King Akhenaton of the 18th dynasty. Together they remodeled Egypt's religion around the worship of the sun God Aten and moved the empire's capital to a newly built city, Amarna. She was a very influential figure and an icon of feminine beauty, as indicated by her name, which means “the beautiful woman has come”. There are many gaps about her death as her tomb has not been discovered until today. Nevertheless, she became famous as her iconic bust with the characteristic crown is among the most popular artifacts of ancient Egypt.
