Re: Nefertiti as Isis
In Response To: Nefertiti as Isis ()

Hi Charles:

"Isis was also the first female that ruled as a king/man. This may have also motivated Nefertiti. "

But Isis was a goddess. Do we know how developed her story was in Ahkenaten's time?

But there was a closer reference point for Nefertiti: it was Hatsephut. I believe there are reliefs and statues of Hatsephut showing her as a male. So Nefertiti certainly would have had a role model!
