NEFERTITI, MYSTERIOUS QUEEN OF EGYPT
An episode from the series SECRETS OF HISTORY - PORTRAITS
It is now 35 centuries since Queen Nefertiti reigned alongside her husband, Pharaoh Akhenaten. Many ancient representations of this historical figure show her in different situations and attitudes proving that she held considerable power.
Who was she really? What do we know about her origins and her lineage? What was the daily life of the rulers of the time?
SECRETS OF HISTOIRY also looks at Nefertititi's famous bust, kept in Berlin, to determine whether the graceful woman it represents is indeed the great royal wife of the Pharaoh.
