Nefertiti was the wife of the Pharaoh, Akenaten, who was the founder of the cult of Aten, the One Gold, who resided in the sun. Nefertiti was an important part of a rebellion against the old Egyptian religion. She was said to be the most beautiful woman of the age, and her face is still one of the best known of the ancient world. Her face outnumbers the stone carvings of her husband's face two to one. She was a Queen of many names, including: Great of Favor, Mistress of Sweetness, Mistress of the Upper and Lower Realms, the Great King's Wife Whom He Adores, and Lady of the Two Lands. Nefertiti was a woman of power, and her legacy remains to this day.
