Nefertiti Summary

Nefertiti: Egypt's Sun Queen by Joyce A. Tyldesley

For over a decade, Nefertiti, wife of the heretic king Akhenaten, was the most influential woman in the Bronze Age world; a beautiful queen blessed by the sun-god, adored by her family and worshipped by her people. Her image and her name were celebrated throughout Egypt and her future seemed golden. Suddenly Nefertiti disappeared from the royal family, vanishing so completely that it was as if she had never been. No record survives to detail her death, no monument serves to mourn her passing and to this day her end remains and enigma - her body has never been found. Joyce Tyldesley here provides a discussion of the life and times of Nefertiti, Egypt's sun queen, set against the background of the ephemeral Amarna court.

Table of Contents

The imperial family; a beautiful woman has come; the Aten dazzles; images of Amarna; horizon of the Aten; the mystery of the disappearing queen; sunset; epilogue - the beautiful woman returns.
