King Tut Mama Had It Going On…
Black, beautiful and gorgeous, she is regarded as one of the most influential Queens ever to rule Kemet (Ancient Egypt). A princess of Nubian birth, she married the Kemetan King Amenhotep III who ruled during the New Kingdom Dynasties around 1391BC. She held the title of “Great Royal Wife” and acted upon it following the end of her husband’s reign. It was she who held sway over Kemet during the reign of her three sons Amenhotep IV (Akhenaton), Smenkhare, and the famous child king Tut-ankh-amen. For nearly half of a century, she governed Kemet, regulated her trade, and protected her borders. During this time, she was believed to be the standard of beauty in the ancient world.
