For over a decade, Nefertiti, wife of the heretic king Akhenaten, was the most influential woman in the Bronze Age world; a beautiful queen blessed by the sun-god, adored by her family and worshipped by her people. Her image and her name were celebrated throughout Egypt and her future seemed golden. Suddenly Nefertiti disappeared from the royal family, vanishing so completely that it was as if she had never been. No record survives to detail her death, no monument serves to mourn her passing and to this day her end remains and enigma - her body has never been found. Joyce Tyldesley here provides a discussion of the life and times of Nefertiti, Egypt's sun queen, set against the background of the ephemeral Amarna court.

Summary: Nefertiti, her image forever frozen in the now famous limestone bust, has been hailed as one of the most beautiful and fascinating women of all time.At a young age Nefertiti married Akhenaten, the enigmatic ruler of the most powerful kingdom of the Bronze Age world. By the age of thirty, Nefertiti had given birth to six daughters and achieved a position of enormous influence as mother-goddess and the living symbol of fertility within the perfect family. Together, she and the king presided over the magnificent Egyptian court of Amarna, acknowledged to be the centre of the civilized world. Then suddenly she disappeared from the official records of the times. Her death and the whereabouts of her body remain a mystery.In this fascinating tale of detection Joyce Tyldesley draws on evidence from archaeological remains, historical documents and art of the period, to explore beyond the myths and offer illuminating insights into the life and times of the much-loved sun queen and the dazzling court of Akhenaten,at Amarna.
