Historians believe Queen Nefertiti was a powerful and beautiful lady. Her name even translates as “a beautiful lady has come.” She married the Pharaoh Akhenaten around 1353 BC and co-ruled as his queen for many years. She was his first and most important wife and they had six daughters together.
King Tutankhamun is possibly the most famous Ancient Egyptian pharaoh of all time. He is known as the Boy King, because he was only nine years old when he became pharaoh. He married his half-sister, which was very common in Ancient Egypt, but he died around the age of 18 years, possibly from an infection gained following a broken leg.
The Rosetta Stone is arguably one of the most important archaeological finds of all time. It is the key to understanding Ancient Egyptian writing, which uses symbols called ‘hieroglyphs’. Before the Rosetta Stone was found, hieroglyphs were an intriguing reminder of a mysterious and lost language.
