The mysterious ancient Queen Nefertiti was one of the most powerful women in the ancient times. It is believed that she lived an epoch from around 1370 B.C. to 1330 B.C. A bust of Queen Nefertiti discovered in 1912 is one of the widely acknowledged symbols of antiquated Egypt. Her eminence as the most beautiful women & icon of female beauty in today’s culture is a benchmark. The name Nefertiti signifies the same, “The beautiful one has arrived".
Nefertiti and her husband, Pharaoh Akhenaten, were known for a religious revolution, in which they worshiped one god only, or the sun disc. With her husband, she reigned at what was arguably the wealthiest period of Ancient Egyptian history.
