    (circa 1300 BC-1250 BC)
    Queen consort to and favorite wife of Ramses II
    Official titles include Great Royal Wife, The Lady of Two Lands and God's Wife
    She is sometimes confused with Nefertiti.
    She and Ramses were only 13 and 15 when they married.
    Ramses wrote starry-eyed poetry about her.
    Despite her prominence in Egyptian affairs, her main duty was to bear sons (she had 10 children).
    As time went by, fewer images of her were made, suggesting declining influence.
    None of her sons survived Ramses, and the son of another wife ended up succeeding him.
    Admission to her tomb in Luxor is very high, and visitors can only stay for 10 minutes.
    Despite their arranged marriage, she and Ramses genuinely loved one another.
    She accompanied Ramses on state business and even into war.
    She and the Hittite queen played a key role in negotiating a treaty between their countries, ending years of fighting.
    She is one of only a few Egyptian women to be deified.
    Ramses built a temple in her honor at Abu Simbel.
    She had to share Ramses with dozens of other wives and concubines.
    Her tomb's wall paintings are unusually well preserved and are a great tourist draw.
