Nefertiti was a queen and the Great Royal Wife of Egyptian pharaoh Akhenaten, and lived between about 1370 BCE and 1330 BCE.
But that’s not all: she was also the stepmother (and mother-in-law) of one of the most well-known rulers of Ancient Egypt: King Tutankhamun.
A woman who was renowned for her beauty, here are three different artists’ depictions of Nefertiti, all based on the very old painted stucco-coated limestone bust shown above.
The statue was made in her image back in 1345 BCE, and was rediscovered in 1912.
