Nefertiti

(fl. 1370–1336 BC)
   Chief wife of Akhenaten of unknown origin. She is represented as an equal of her husband on reliefs and in a style not previously used for queens. She is best known for the famous bust found at Amarna now housed in the Berlin Egyptian Museum. She was apparently the mother of six daughters, including Meritaten (later Meritamun), Meketaten, Ankhesenpaaten (later Ankhesenamun, wife of Tutankhamun), Nefernefruaten, Nefernefrure, and Setepenre. Her ultimate fate is unknown, but it has been suggested that she briefly acted as ruler or regent upon her husband’s death.
