For over a decade Nefertiti, wife of the heretic king Akhenatem, was the most influential woman in the Bronze Age. Her image and name were celebrated throughout Egypt and her future seemed golden. Suddenly Nefertiti disappeared from the royal family, vanishing so completely that it was as if she had never been. No record survives to detail her death, no monument serves to mourn her passing and to this day her end remains an enigma. Joyce Tyldesley provides a detailed discussion of the life and times of Nefertiti, set against the background of the ephemeral Amarna Court.
