Nefertiti was the queen of Egypt and wife of Pharaoh Akhenaten whose name means “THE BEAUTIFUL ONE HAS COME”

She was known for her beauty and was the subject of a famous 3,300-year old bust that is now in Berlin. Akhenaten was succeeded by a pharaoh named Smenkhare and next by Tutankhamun. The family’s rule ended with a military takeover, and their names were later erased from official records.
Nefertiti was perhaps one of the most powerful women ever to have ruled. In several reliefs she is shown wearing the crown of a pharaoh or smiting her enemies in battle. But despite this great power, Nefertiti disappears from all depictions after 12 years. The reason for her disappearance is unknown. Some scholars believe she died, while others speculate she was elevated to the status of co-regent—equal in power to the pharaoh—and began to dress herself as a man. Other theories suggest she became known as Pharaoh Smenkhkare, ruling Egypt after her husband’s death or that she was exiled when the worship of the deity Amen-Ra came back into vogue.
