Queen Nefertiti, another ‘whitewashed’, is one of the most influential Queen in ancient Egypt

 

 

Like Queen Makeda, Queen Nefertiti is another non-Africans history writers try to claim. Nefertiti is not what most people try to portray, she was native African queen from Egypt not Europe or Asia.

Nefertiti was a queen with Pharaoh Akhenaten from 1353 to 1336 B. C. It is believed she have been ruled the newly transformed kingdom on her own after her husband’s death. Her was a time when cultural, religious and political structure was transformed. Nefertiti is best known for her painted sandstone bust, which was rediscovered in 1913 and became a global icon of feminine beauty and power.

During Akhenaten rule there was a radical religion and artistic convention transformation. This was different from earlier pharaohs.

On the walls of tombs and temples built during Akhenaten’s reign, Nefertiti is depicted alongside her husband with a frequency seen for no other Egyptian queen. In many cases she is seen positions of power and authority—leading worship of Aten the sun God and driving chariots or smiting an enemy.

Nefertiti disappears from the historical record around the 12th year of Akhenaten’s 17-year reign. She may have died at that point, but it is possible she became her husband’s official co-regent under the name Neferneferuaten. Akhenaten was followed as pharaoh by Smenkhkare, who some historians suggest may have been another name for Nefertiti.

If Nefertiti kept power during and beyond Akhenaten’s last years, it is possible she began the reversal of her husband’s religious polices that would reach fruition during the reign of King Tut. 

You can also look at Queen Makeda the queen of Sheba, Queen Amina the fearless worrior Queen of Zazzau, Queens of Kandake latinised Candace, and Mekatilili wa Menza the worrior Queen who resisted British.
