Nefertiti's central role in the adpotion of this new religion is witnessed in the artistic representations which adorn temple walls.
Nefertiti's place as an icon in popular culture is secure: she has become a celebrity, the second most famous "Queen" of Egypt in the European imagination and influenced through photographs the changed standards of feminine beauty of the 20th century.

 Egypt State Information Service - Famous women
Nefertiti was the Queen of Egypt and co-ruled Egypt between 1379 and 1358 BC.
Nefertiti continued this tradition by actively assisting her husband in his attempt to convert Egypt to monotheism; she was an enthusiastic supporter and a full partner in the process of spreading the new religion.
Moreover, Nefertiti was pictured killing the enemies of Egypt in a scene normally reserved for pharaohs and she was shown with her husband awarding gold to royal favorites at the Window of Appearance.

 Images and History of Queen Nefertiti
The wife of Pharaoh Akhenaten and perhaps a ruler in her own right after his death, Nefertiti was little more than a historical whisper when, in 1912, an exquisite limestone sculpture of her now famous face was unearthed at the royal retreat of Amarna.
And while Nefertiti's origins as well as her demise  remain shrouded in mystery, Egyptologists are beginning to piece together more about her life.
Nefertiti has given rise to the tradition that she was one of the most beautiful women of antiquity.

Nefertiti seems to have taken a hitherto unprecedented level of importance in the Amarna period art.

 Where's Nefertiti?
That was all a year ago, but in the forthcoming Search for Nefertiti Fletcher does nothing to address the criticisms leveled at her identification, as presented in the documentary, or discuss the controversy it generated.
Queen Tiye, wife of Amenhotep III and Nefertiti's own mother-in-law, is depicted with her right arm by her side and her left arm crooked over her chest, the hand clenched and holding a royal fly-whisk scepter.
Unfortunately, other than supposed evidence for the Younger Woman being Nefertiti, discussion of this is limited to some comments on apparent similarities in the mummification techniques (for example the brains left in the skulls) and notice of a hip injury to the young male.

 Nefertiti   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Nefertiti was the Wife of Akhenaten during the Eighteenth Dynasty.
Some scholars have contemplated Nefertiti’s role in the religious reform of Egypt, contemplating if it was Nefertiti who urged her husband toward the religious reform or if he did so under his own volition.
Little has been written about Nefertiti’s role with the king, however, from scribe texts, it is certain that she bore Akhenaten 6 daughters and no sons, and shared a near co-rulership with the king.

 Did Nefertiti Share Akhenaten's Throne?
Nefertiti’s shawabti (a small doll made after a person’s death and buried with the mummy to do any labor required of the deceased in the afterlife) shows her with the scepters of a king but with the titles of a King’s Great Wife and not the titles of a ruling monarch.
Nefertiti is also portrayed as a sphinx; again one must decide if this reflects her kingly state or simply the increased prestige of a queen.
Whether Nefertiti was officially a pharaoh and took the name of Smenkhkare is not as important as the fact she was accorded a degree of prominence that no other major civilization in the ancient world was willing to concede to a woman.

 Nefertiti always and forever   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Elaborating on his scepticism about the mummy being that of Nefertiti, Hawass told the Weekly that X-ray analysis carried out previously by himself and Egyptologist Kent Weeks indicated that it was the body of a 16-year-old girl, whereas Nefertiti is thought to have died in her 30s.
He explained that, "Nefertiti was involved in the assassination of her husband's successor, Smenkhare, and was later in conflict with King Horemhab who overthrew the monotheistic cult of his predecessor and erased all traces of it.
Nefertiti was a high-profile queen, who, incidentally, appeared nearly twice as often in reliefs as her husband, the king, during the first five years of his reign.

In her book 'Nefertiti' Joyce Tyldesley draws the comparison between Nefertiti and a new fertility goddess in the Amarna Period to replace the now illegal worship of Hathor - (Nefertiti had six children and so, of course, could be considered as a replacement for the now banned Hathor).
Nefertiti was exiled to the North Palace at Akhetaten (where she possibly spent time with a young Tutankhaten (Tutankhamun)), but there is no evidence for any exile.
Nefertiti died soon after the burial of her daughter Maketaten and was buried in the Royal Tomb at Akhetaten.

Nefertiti's preeminence during her husband's reign is evident in the temple carvings, of which dominated those of Pharaoh Akhenaton.

 USATODAY.com - Nefertiti unwrapped? Looks like it
She married Pharaoh Akhenaten, who ruled for 17 years in the late 18th dynasty of 14th century B.C. She was an unusually powerful queen who co-reigned with Ahkenaten and may have ruled as pharaoh for three years after his death, says Joann Fletcher of the University of York's Mummy Research Team.
Nefertiti vanished from Egyptian history with no trace of a royal tomb or evidence of a burial.
The mummy's mouth was smashed, perhaps by the priests, to prevent the body from breathing and eating in the afterlife.

Queen Nefertiti, along with her husband the pharaoh Akhenaten, ruled from 1353-1336 BC during the so-called 18th dynasty of ancient Egyptian rulers.

 Nefertiti Summary
During the first five years of his reign, Nefertiti enjoyed a high profile, and the large number of carved scenes in which she is shown accompanying him during the ceremonial acts he performed is evidence of her political importance.
Nefertiti (egyptian nfr.t-iitj = the beauty that has come) was the Great Royal Wife (or chief consort/wife) of the Egyptian Pharaoh Amenhotep IV (later Akhenaten), and mother-in-law of the Pharaoh Tutankhamun.
As can be seen by the suggested identifications between Tadukhipa, Nefertiti, Smenkhkare and Kiya, the records of their time and their lives are largely incomplete, and the findings of both archaelogists and historians may develop new theories vis-à-vis Nefertiti and her precipitous exit from the public stage.

It is believed that Nefertiti was active in the religious and cultural changes initiated by her husband.
Nefertiti's high position was changed dramatically in the 12th year of Akhenaten's reign, when the couple's daughter took over her position as chief wife by marrying her own father.
What Nefertiti now is remembered for, is the painted limestone bust depicting her, one of the greatest works of art of the pre-modern world (see illustration).

 CNN.com - Mummy thought to be Nefertiti may be a man - Sep. 1, 2003
Nefertiti, wife and co-ruler with the pharaoh Akhenaten and stepmother of legendary boy King Tutankhamun, has long been considered one of the most powerful women of ancient Egypt.
"Nefertiti gave birth six times, so her hips should be very broad, but this mummy's hips are very narrow," said Hawass, who inspected the mummy on Friday.
Hawass said Nefertiti was widely believed to be at least 35 years old when she died, but Brothwell's expedition report concluded an age range of 18-30 for the mummy.
