Seller: luxorco2015 (204) 99.5%, Location: Staines, Ships to: GB & many other countries, Item: 172419605269 Rare Ancient Egyptians limestone Queen Nefertari (c. 1295-1255 B.C.) very beautiful pic with clear detail coming from west bank of luxor - vally of the queens colorful and hieroglyphic writing .size: 8 cm high 5 cm wide .Nefertari, the Great Wife of Ramesses II whom we today call Ramesses the Great, was granted one of the most spectacular tombs in the Valley of the Queens. Her mummy and most of the treasures buried with her were destroyed by tomb robbers, but much of the wall painting has survived. The paintings are not only incredibly beautiful but they contain a wealth of information on the Egyptian beliefs about Judgement Day and the Afterlife.Horemheb, who ruled after the deaths of Tutankhamun and Aye, picked for his successor the chief general of the army. Ramesses already had a son and a grandson so there was hope that the throne would pass smoothly. Ramesses I (the founder and first king of the Nineteenth Dynasty) lasted only a year before dying and leaving the throne to his son Seti I. Seti ruled successfully for a decade or more before passing the throne to his son Ramesses II. As Horemheb had hoped, the succession was smooth. No doubt when Seti chose his son's wife, he kept in mind that he was also picking the next queen of Egypt, but the record gives us no hint as to her origin or family. The new kings came from the Delta region and had no royal blood in them; it has been suggested that the marriage with Nefertari was arranged to strength Ramesses hold on the throne by linking his family with one from Thebes, but there is simply no evidence one way or the other. Since her titles do not include that of "king's daughter" it is probably safe to conclude that she did not have a royal father by a principal wife, although both Ay and Horemheb have been suggested as parent along with a lesser member of the royal harem.this item are guarunteed to be genuine and from the period in history .item are quite old they may will have defects that come with years of age ,if you are dissatisfied for any reason ,please return the item within 14 day.All the best and good luck Type: l, Material: Limestone, Colour: Gold
