Does anyone know if there are any books published about Queen Tiye? It seems she is mostly mentioned in books about Amenhotep III... Or is there some other source where Tiye would have been studied in detail?

I've never come across anything just on her.

As you say, most books that mention Queen Tiye do so as more or less of a sidebar in a biography of Amenhotep III.
There are several on line biographies of her, though. The one that comes immediately to mind is on touregypt. Do a Google search and you will find quite a few more.

I believe Queen Etiye to be one and the same as ETEYE AZEB in the Kebra Nagast. Everything else fits. Whilst we often throw in the vowel 'e' when no vowel is written, nobody bothers to think that a name began with the letter 'E'. As an Abbysinian it would have been a foreign name in Egypt. The KN tells us that Eteye was the wife of Solomon - (YmnHtp III..Htp=Salim, so SalimAmen). Their eldest son was called Menelek and also known as David. El was the Semite moon god equivalent to Djehwt or Twt - so Ymn El Ankh - Ymn El Ek - Menelek. Twt hardens in Hebrew to DWD which is David. (Djayhwt sounds like David - the letter 'i' on the end is a special adjectival suffix meaning 'He Who Is".

1 Kings 11:11/13 tells us that the Kingdom would be taken away from Solomon, but not until during the reign of his son (Twt), and given to an official or servant. This did happen and the next king was Ay - named Ahijah in 1 Kings 11.

But the KN tells us that Menelek/David was the eldest son of Solomon. That would have to have been the Prince TwtMs

So could TwtYmnAnkh be the missing Prince - possibly paraded around by the priests of Amen as a resurrected king, in opposition to Akhenaten?
The Pince's tomb was found empty, his whip and chest in Twt's tomb and there were hints on Akhenaten's memorial stone gates that something disgusting was going on in Waset.

According to Graham Philips in 'The Moses Legacy' there is a sandstone head in the Fine Arts Museum in Boston thought to be that of the missing Prince Tuthmose. He is wearing the royal serpent of co-regency.

There are more clues, but this is a start.

As for Eteye the KN tells us that she had hairy legs.

There are many pages about Queen Etiye in 'Nefertiti' by Joyce Tyldesley.
