In life and in death, Ramses II lovingly referred to his first wife with a host of adoring nicknames. Here are some of them:
Great of Praises, Sweet of Love, Lady of Grace, Great King’s Wife, his beloved, Lady of The Two Lands, Lady of all Lands, Wife of the Strong Bull, god’s Wife, Mistress of Upper and Lower Egypt and (my personal favorite) ‘The one for whom the sun shines’.
On one of her tomb walls, Ramses had inscribed the most beautiful words, “My love is unique – no one can rival her, for she is the most beautiful woman alive. Just by passing, she has stolen away my heart.”
