Ankhesenamen is sweet and I also like Nefertari... But I hate Nefertiti. I don't really know why -- maybe I'm jealous. Yeah I know its sickly. :lol:

I'm sticking with Cleopatra! At least she remained a woman officially, depicting herself as a stunning goddess and not some muscular man! lol, Now Cleopatra was a strong woman! And anyone who says she was Greek will get a cyber slap! lol, its like saying that Americans are all English, Irish, Italian etc still!!! After 300 years I think she qualifies as an Egyptian!

Wow, I haven't posted my favorite queen! How odd..

As far as my favorite to study, that's Nefertiti - because there's always some random nutjob with a crazy new theory, or stupid concept on her life..

But my favorite overall is Hatsepshut. I don't know why, but well... prove me wrong.

Some of the famous ones are interesting:
Ahhotep, Ahomose-Nefertari, Hatshepsut, Tiye, Nefertiti, Nefertari, etc.

But I have to say There are some mose obscure ones that I find just as intriguing if not more.

Merytre-Hatshepsut, the great wife of Tuthmosis III is a very interesting woman to me. She married one of the strongest kings of the dynasty, lived on through her son Amenhotep II's reign and then seems to have been on the loosing side of a battle for succession and power.

Another interesting woman is Queen Tia, Merytre-Hatshepsut's daughter-in-law, and apparently her opponent in the struggle for power.

If I went "into character" as M-H, the I would now yell somthing to the effect of : "And the B... stole all my monuments!!!"

LOL

Other interesting women are the "other queens of Ramses II:
Isetnofret, Meryetamun, Bintanath, Maathorneferure etc.
I wonder what is was like to be just one of so many women.....

Would drive me nuts. I didn't like to share my toys as a child, so I definitely would not like to share my man as an adult :twisted:

Hey I can't help but say thank's for the applause of Hatshepsut. For without her I would not be whole. As off balance as that sound's to the ear. Antiquity rattle's these bone's, and I feel with the sense's what has been long forgotten. What majesty of purpose we lived in those day's! Today I feel blessed by the touch of each of you in celebration of Ancient Egypt, her land and it's people; their Sun God/Ra.
Today, as then, we pray for peace and brotherhood amongs't all people's.
Peace out KTO! :P

But she used too much of her feminine wiles and led Egypt into its ultimate demise! Besides, she might not have been as beautiful as the bust predicts (that is, if you're into a one eyed, half eared stone woman). Many wall motifs show a horridly ugly woman. The bust could have been an artists desire for survival! :D

I wrote an interesting thesis that it was anthonys infatuation with her that led to the Battle of Actium and therefore the end of Egypt. I entered it into a competition and I am still waiting to see how I did!

Good luck with the competition, Si-amun. You should get plenty of points for accuracy. I hate to use such a modern slang term, but in this case it's true. Mark Antony was utterly and completely whipped.

So taken by Cleopatra and her land was he that in 34 BCE, Antony divided certain parts of the eastern Roman Empire between Cleopatra and her children. To the Roman Senate he explained away this action by stating that he was installing client rulers. However, this did not sit well with Octavian, Mark Antony's brother-in-law by his Roman wife. Octavian unleashed a smear campaign against Mark Antony and Cleopatra.

Octavian's propoganda centered around the debauched affairs between Cleopatra and Mark Antony. As a result, in 32 BCE Rome declared war on Egypt and Cleopatra VII.

In 31 BCE Octavian defeated Mark Antony's navy at the battle of Actium, partly because Cleopatra's Egyptian fleet unexpectedly withdrew from the fight. Octavian then invaded Egypt itself, and the Egyptians were no match for the Romans. Mark Antony committed suicide and was soon followed by Cleopatra VII, who took her own life on August 10, 30 BCE. That's the romantic version, anyway. Of course we can't be certain how Cleopatra actually died. It's just as likely that Octavian's men slaughtered her, as they did her young son, Ptolemy Caesarion (who as heir was even more of a threat than Cleopatra).

Sorry I prattled on so long. Fascinating stuff, this. Let us know how the competition turns out, Si-amun. We're cheering for you! :D :D :D

Queen Josephine of France.
I wrote a 12 page report about her and got an A.
She was just this woman that was constantly used and victimized,yet she remained in control. She was almost executed for being married to this jerk that had a child with a married woman!
