Note: Ahmose Nefertari
Queen Ahmose Nefertari - (1570-1505 bc) was a New Kingdom influential queen with political an d religious titles. She was the spouse of Ahmose, son of Queen Ahhotep, and itīs thought tha t she was his sister or halfsister. Ahmose Nefertari was never a regent per sé, but through h er, we get some knowledge about the new political role of women in the early 18th Dynasty. A s an example, she was the first one to carry the title of God's Wife of Amun. This title wa s bestowed on her by Ahmose and the event is recorded on a stele in the temple of Amun at Kar nak. The stele also tells that there was an endowment of goods and land together with the off ice, which would stay with her and her heirs for all eternity.
Ahmose Nefertari was also thought to have been involved with the kingīs building projects. Th e limestone quarries opposite Memphis, and the alabaster quarries of Assiut displays her name , and on a stele at Abydos there is an inscription by the king, saying that he sought her app roval before erecting it to the honor of his grandmother Tetisheri.
Often there are listed ritual offerings dedicated by queens and kings, but those by Ahmose Ne fertari, which have been found in temples at Karnak, Abydos, Deir-el-Bahri and Serabit-el-Kad im in Sinai, outdoes them both chronologically and numerically. This tells us of her involvem ent in the cult, both concerning the buildings, the rituals, and the dedication of ritual obj ects. Probably this was done in her capacity as Godīs Wife of Amen, a title which she preferr ed to use instead of other royal titles like 'kingīs wife' etc.
Ahmose Nefertari outlived both her husband and her son Amenhotep I. During the next king, Thu tmose I, she still enjoyed a high esteem, and the king set up a statue of her in the temple a t Karnak. The date of her death is unknown, but a fragment of an inscription tells us: 'whe n the Godīs Wife Ahmose Nefertari, justified with the great god, lord of the west, flew to he aven'. Both during her lifetime and after, she overshadowed her sonīs principal wife Meritamu n, who, even though the title of Godīs Wife of Amun was passed over to her, did not leave an y significant traces.
Her importance lingered after her death. She and her son Amenhotep I was deified and worshipp ed as their patrons in the workmenīs village at Deir-el-Medina, where her cult survived all t hroughout the New Kingdom.
