Hmm...

Tiye-She seemed like a real cool woman, she was involved in a lot of political things during her husbands reign.

Nefertari-She was so beautiful, and mysterious to me. I wish we had more info on her.

Ahmose Nefertari-She held a lot of power during her husband's reign and I believe she was the first queen to be looked at as a living goddess, and a great royal wife??

Hatshepsut-Even though she later on became pharoah, she was still a queen when she was married.

I really feel these ladies are the ones who are sometimes overlooked. A lot of times people like to blow up Nefertiti, I mean she was interesting but she certainly wasn't the only interesting queen in all of Egypt. It'd be nice to see a movie or documentary based on one of these ladies. I haven't seen any. :roll:

Tiye, Nefertiti and Kiya. (I'm an Amarna chick and proud of it.)

Thankyou Tadukhipa, you shall be rewarded in the next life for your royalty.

Actually Tiy was rather cool. She came from a non royal background to become the most powerful woman in the land. Also Hatshepsut for having the strength and daring to take on the establishment, win the support of the priests of Amun at Karnak and for keeping Tut sweet for 20 years and for holding this all together. Hats off to the chick.

My REALLY favourite queen is Hatshepsut, but I don't neglect Nefertiti and Ankhesenamon too

There are so many!

I like Ankhesenamun mostly for the letter she wrote to the Mitannian king asking for a son in marriage. This showed guts -- and I'm sure she paid for it with her life. (I don't subscribe to the theory that Nefertiti wrote the letter).

And I like Hatshepsut because she wasn't about war. I was lucky enough to go to Egypt last fall and see Deir-el-Bahari with my own eyes. It's amazing -- all the reliefs about the trip to Punt and what she considered the great treasures that were brought back -- trees, a giraffe, incense. Everybody else's temples are all about "I crushed this enemy, I crushed that enemy." I realize that she really had to collude with the priests of Amun to get all that power, and that it probably affected the pharaonate in a negative way, because henceforth the pharaohs couldn't say "boo" without getting Amun's blessing. And Akhenaten really went to town on her monuments -- he vandalized parts of Deir el-Bahari that Thutmose III missed. I doubt it was because she was a woman -- he was just angry at the Amun business.

Yeah he probably had no personal feelings one way or the other for Hatshepsut, if anything he was rather partial to strong females. He hated all Amun monuments equally:-)
