The Queen of the Nile Necklace honors one of the most powerful queens in ancient Egypt, Nefertiti, also known as the Daughter of the Gods.
The Queen, along with her husband, Pharaoh Akhenaten, ruled over Egypt during the 14th century B.C.. Together they revolutionized the religion of Egypt to worship only one god, the god of the sun, Aten. Throughout their reigning period, the two were equals, with ancient reliefs showing Nefertiti in a Pharaoh’s crown.
Mysteriously, twelve years into their rule, Nefertiti disappeared from all depictions. While still unexplained, one theory is that Nefertiti rose from her position as queen to co-ruler, and was depicted from then on in men’s clothing, taking the role of Female King.
