Some Pictures From My Trip To Berlin in January of 2008

Nefertiti in the Altes Museum, Berlin Nefertiti in the Altes Museum, Berlin

Nefertiti in the Altes Museum, Berlin - Jan 13th, 2008
(c. 1370 BC - c. 1330 BC) was the Great Royal Wife (or chief consort/wife) of the Egyptian Pharaoh Akhenaten. She was the mother-in-law and probable stepmother of the Pharaoh Tutankhamun. Nefertiti may have also ruled as pharaoh in her own right under the name Neferneferuaten briefly after her husband's death and before the accession of Tutankhamun, although this identification is doubted by the latest research. Her name roughly translates to "the beautiful (or perfect) one has arrived". She was made famous by her bust, now in Berlin's Egyptian Museum ("Altes Museum" on the "Museumsinsel"), this is one of the most copied works of ancient Egypt.
