Nefertiti’s Final Resting Place Continues to Polarize, Captivate – D-brief

Nefertiti could be interred in the deserted ruins of Tell el – Amarna, or have been included in the cache of ancient Egyptian royalty & noble mummies taken from the Valley of the Kings / Queens, or her remains could’ve had the worst possible fate for ancient Egyptian befall them – Destruction at the hands of those whom the monotheistic Pharaoh Akhenaten & his followers in the religion of the Aten ( Sun God, another aspect of Ra / Amun Ra ) fell out of favor with. I don’t have access to more than my imagination, but I would suspect that the Chief Wife ( There was no title such as ” Queen ” in Egyptian. ) of Akhenaten’s mummy was destroyed or perhaps because of the before – mentioned disfavor, she was unmummified & just left to the unforgiving desert. And the entire 18th dynasty section of the the King’s List was essentially erased at the sacred city of Abydos ( Abju / Abjdu ) effectively removing them from memory. That was the 2nd worst fate that could befall a Pharaonic Egyptian. Many carvings depicting Akhenaten & / or Nefertiti were heavily defaced, & their cartouches ( hieroglyphs enclosed in a protective oval ) erased by chisels.

Perhaps we’ll never know. The past of 3,000 years + ago is another world. Nefertiti – ” The Beautiful One Has Come ”

Is Nefertiti hidden in a chamber behind a wall in King Tutankhamen’s tomb? Is there a chamber? An intense debate heats up.
