    Queen Tiye was a queen of the 18th Dynasty, married to Amenhotep III. The daughter of Yuya, high official under Thutmose IV. Her mother was Thuya.

    Tiye likely married Amenhotep while he was a prince. She is believed to have been only 11 or 12 years old at the time of the marriage. She was intelligent and diligent, the first queen of Egypt to have her name on official acts, including the announcement of the king's marriage to a foreign princess.

    After giving birth to Akhenaten and a number of royal daughters, (Sitamen, Henuttaneb, Nebetiah, and Aset) Tiye urged her oldest daughter, Princess Sitamun, to marry the king. It is believed that she did this in order to ensure royal heirs to the throne. Queen Tiye was a full-blooded African from Nubia. Her son, Akhenaten and his wife Nefertiti also ruled Egypt. Ay was Queen Tiye's brother.

    There is considerable archaeological and textual evidence indicating that Tutankhamun's probable grandmother was Queen Tiye.

Researchers discover 3,400-year-old artifact depicting Queen Ti

LUXOR, Egypt, Jan. 24, 2006
(AP) A Johns Hopkins University archaeological team has unearthed a statue of Queen Ti, one of the most important women in ancient Egypt and wife of Pharaoh Amenhotep III, Egypt's Supreme Council of Antiquities announced Monday.

The statue, mostly intact, was found under a statue of Amenhotep III in the sprawling Karnak Temple in Luxor, which was a royal city in ancient Egypt.

Ti was the first queen of Egypt to have her name appear on official acts alongside that of her husband. She was known for her influence in state affairs in the reigns of both her husband (1417-1379 B.C.) and of her son, Akhenaton, (1379-1362 B.C.) during a time of prosperity and power in the 18th dynasty. Her son is remembered for being the first pharaoh to advocate monotheism.

Ti, of Nubian heritage, is believed to be the grandmother of Tutankhamun, perhaps the most famous ruler of ancient Egypt

Amenhotep III, who ruled for 38 years, made a basic change in the history of ancient Egypt when he named his wife, Ti, as queen against the tradition that his sister should be queen.

Recently found, perfectly preserved statue found in Kemet.

Everywhere they dig they find us.

Reserve Head of a Man. Giza; Fourth Dynasty, probably reign of Khufu (ca. 2551–2528 B.C.E.). Limestone; H. 11 7/8 in. (30 cm). Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, Harvard University–Museum of Fine Arts Expedition (14.719).

Although each reserve head has characteristics that make it unique, this example stands out from the group. It is one of the largest and is the most perfectly preserved, exhibiting none of the intentional damage found on others. Excavated in a shaft with another head, this one was originally identified as the Nubian wife of the tomb owner. Recent study, however, suggests that it probably represents the male Egyptian owner of the tomb. Although the face has affinities with later depictions of Nubians, it also bears a striking resemblance to statues of Fourth Dynasty kings and undoubtedly represents an Egyptian. The variations among reserve heads probably reflect the diversity in Egypt's population.

Good post. This statue bust that appears on this post was found some time ago. It has been used in various documentaries about King Tut and his family lineage. I've even seen it on a website called "Black Consciousness" where they've linked it to different pages about African history.
I'd like to point out one thing, many so-called expert Egyptologists are European. Has anyone else ever noticed that??
What's equally amazing is the fact that the Euro-Western racist historical revisionist did not get a chance to manipulate her obviously African features or had to chance to FIRST publish/distribute whitenized photos of her throughout the world to add to the mythology that those that are the predominate race in Egypt now are the same ones that Built and ruled Egypt thousand of years ago, etc., etc.

I know the statue has been in its resting place for quite some time, but the absence of her nose makes me question if some Europeans along the way had attempted to manipulate or deny her heritage.


I once listned to a lecture by Dr Ivan VanSertima

It was proposed that the reason we see so many statues with the noses removed is that during those times the people believed that the spirit of the dead person exited and entered the nose and that if they remove the nose they could keep the spirit in or "lock it out".

I've never been able to confirm if it is myth or fact that Napoleon destroyed the nose of the Sphinx.
The sixteen dynasties of Egyptian history made public today are the last of the great kingdoms, not by far the first. Our story as recorded in the ruins of Egypt today was the end of some of our greatness. This was made possible by Khufu removing the immigration law and allowing an invasion of other races to "tie into the vine" and literally claim to be Egyptians, to the point where they literally replaced woolly haired dark skinned people's images. They fabricated false replicas that house the museums and even repainted the art works in tombs and "antiqued" them to seem authentic. They want you to see what you think are true images of our ancestors, when in fact they are forgeries. Like the faces of Nefertiti, which they changed.

Didn't Chancellor Williams opine this in his book?

Great post! That statue is very beautiful! For me it gives off a strong energy and power. I love the fact that it has not been manipulated.
They (Desert Arabs, pale Muslims) are the ones responsible for destroying and distorting the faces and statues of Egypt in order to hide the fact that they too were originally Nubians. Many think this was Napolean's doing because he was an avid Egyptologist and did collect ancient, especially Egyptian, artifacts, however this is not true. During the 8th and 9th century Abdullah Mamun son of Haruwn Al Rashid was the khalifah (successor). During this time, the Islamic community was flourishing and there was an encouragement of intellectual pursuits. The Muslims flourished because they were robbing Egypt of her knowledge, wealth, and even stole the stones from the pyramids. Originally the pyramids were covered with limestone, and Muslims used these materials to build their mosques.

The chopped off nose of the Sphinx is the most known example of this kind of distortion. The Sphinx was too large to steal or hide, and too well known and protected to destroy, this left these red Arabs with only one alternative – distortion. The Macedonian Arab Mehemet Ali removed the nose of the Sphinx and stole more limestone from the pyramids for the construction of mosques Al Kham in Egypt. Under this ruler of Egypt between 1805 and 1848 A.D. teams of men were set out to destroy, distort and steal all of the pieces of art and science that they could. They knew that this would prove how you,Nubians, are the real Egyptians and they are not, although they have now infiltrated and taken over Egypt. The fact still remains that the head of the Sphinx and other great statues, such as the head of Amenemhat and Imhotep, were those of Nubians, facts that are now being revealed.
