Description
Presented in an oversized, slipcased edition with color photos (up to 20 x 14 inches) of tombs, art, jewelry, and artifacts, this is a fascinating exploration of the role and status of the female rulers of ancient Egypt. Rosanna Pirelli answers such questions as: Did the Egyptian queen enjoy a privileged status compared to other sovereigns in antiquity? Did the centrality of her role depend on her relations with the pharaoh or on the fact that she incarnated the female counterpart of the divine element? And what was her role in Egyptian society? The book compares images and stories of queens from different eras with images and stories of monarchs who were their contemporaries.
