Egyptian history's most famous queen is Nefertiti, renown for the gorgeous portrait sculpture with elegant neck and classic features.
Nefertiti married Pharaoh Akhenaten while still a teen or perhaps a pre-adolescent. Hieroglyphs depict her demure as the young bride.
But during the reign of Akhenaten, she grew more powerful. Both king and queen were hated for forcing the long-reigning Amun priest class into the unemployment line.
The king died under suspicious circumstances. Nefertiti died three years later of unknown causes.
Nefertiti vanished from Egyptian history with no trace of a royal tomb or evidence of a burial.
