• Stories of famous queens such as Hatshepsut, Nefertiti and Nefertari, as well as lesser-known consort queens, reveal the variety of roles a queen could play

This fascinating saga spans 3,000 years of Egyptian queenship, presents a biographical portrait of every queen, supplemented by a wealth of pictorial detail, datafiles, genealogical trees, timelines and special features – from Wigs to Childbirth, highlighting aspects of Egyptian culture.
The female pharaohs Hatshepsut and Tawosret, the sun queens Tiy and Nefertiti, the indefinably beautiful Nefertari and Cleopatra: many of Egypt’s queens have left an indelible mark on their country’s history. And Egypt’s lesser queens, the numerous wives and daughters maintained in pampered seclusion in the harem palaces who are generally forgotten, their graves lost in the desert sands – their stories, too, are told.
