Nefertiti at this angle only elevates her even further as a historical colossus. A truly remarkable ruler.
Her revolutionary view on religion along with her famous bust is what she is remembered for the most. Her husband, Akhenaten is often labelled the ‘First Monotheist in History’ but where did this radical new thinking come from?
Was it brought into Egypt by a foreign family? Did this come from Nefertiti’s family or Akhenaten’s family? Or perhaps Akhenaten and Nefertiti came up with this new religious style together.
It isn’t known where the seed of Monotheism came from. But it is clear that the human races’ first taste of a singular god sprang up in Egypt over 3,372 years ago. Nefertiti - The Queen of Monotheism.
