Famous Beauties Behind Egypt’s Most Famous Kings From Queens Nefertiti and Nefertari – to Queen Twosret
Through times of religious revolution, expansionist wars and invasion, several beautiful Queens emerged that leave a powerful legacy in statuary, monuments – and great deeds. Two of them – Nefertiti and Nefertari – contended with the massive egos and strong personalities of larger-than-life kings who were their doting husbands. For their loyalty, they were beautifully memorialized in works that remain today. For another, Queen Twosret, living in the difficult late 19th Dynasty, her story is a troubled one, but her legacy is a great tomb in the Valley of the Kings – and a name that was not forgotten.
