RARE ANCIENT EGYPTIAN ANTIQUE NEFERTARI Tomb Stone Mask Wife of King Ramses. Queen Nefertari-not to be confused with Nefertiti, the powerful queen who ruled alongside her husband, King Akhenaten, in the mid-14th century B.
Was the first and favored wife of Ramses II, the warrior pharaoh who reigned from 1290 to 1224 B. During the early 19th dynasty. She contributed to Ramses' enormous brood of children, giving birth to four sons and four daughters, and was a quiet force behind the throne, especially in foreign affairs. Nefertari is believed to have died around 1250 B.
When she was 40 to 50 years old, and her husband had ruled for some 25 years. Ramses II honored his beloved consort with a temple at Abu Simbel, in Nubia, as well as a magnificent tomb in the Valley of the Queens, near Thebes.
Thanks to the gorgeously colored paintings on the walls, including astonishingly lifelike depictions of the beautiful queen herself, Egyptologists would rank Nefertari alongside Hatshepsut, Nefertiti and Cleopatra as the most celebrated female rulers in Ancient Egyptian history.
