Queen Sitamen, Mother of King Tut? (Short Story) - 1/26/2007 10:30:21 PM
Good Info; I think Sitamen is our best candidate. I believe Kia was a bit to old at that time. It only makes sense if you consider that after Ahkenaten and Neffertitti were continually harrased at there new sun temple, then finally vanquished, why would they leave their son behind if he was their own. They took their daughters with?
I have heard it rummered that the Mosses of the Bible may have been the Ahkenaten (Tuthmosis; son of mosis)who stemmed from the Jewish line of Joseph? he was possibly banned from egypt into the desert and Ramses the second was not far behind, and we know that he would have been exposed to all the secrets of the priestly orders and their magic.
I also noticed you mentioned Ashaeso queen of the eighteenth dynasty, I think that her lover was the visor/ architect Sennenmut even though he was much older than her no other male is recorded. What a sight she must have been. Is it possible that her young ambitious brother Tuthmosis III killed them both in some silent coup?
Food for thought...

I really enjoy stories of Egypt. I have heard there are pyramids in China, as well as the ones that are found in places as diverse as North America. The Lady that I would be interested in finding more information on is Queen PuabI of Ur. The size of her headdress seems unique. http://mcclungmuseum.utk.edu/specex/ur/ur.htm

Always love stuff on aincient Egypt, Tut's era in my opinion was the last true royal blood line. The Ramses blood line hailed from slaves and commoner's. I often wonder if Neffertiti was Tut's true mother. I can appreciate the research involved in these stories; an archeological excavation of its own... :0)
