Ever since I saw the Nefertiti exhibit at the Met in NYC, I have been intrigued with who this woman was & her origins. Ms. Tyldesley has answered many of my questions. Her ability to convey her knowledge of this period of Egyptian history is as well done as in her book on Hatchseput. I highly recommend this book for anyone who wants to learn more about strong female regents/rulers & the possible origins of monothesism. It is a worthy addition to my growing Egyptian collection. Kudos!
