Ancient Babes: Nefertiti

Ancient Babe Nefertiti

Only one woman can claim to be the first babe of mankind: Nefertiti.

She lived from circa 1370 BC until around 1330 BC and her name roughly translates to “The Beautiful One is come”. And to be honest, I don’t think the people did mind waiting zillion years of evolution for such a Baywatch babe avant la lettre, would you?

She was married to Pharaoh Amenhotep IV, who was later known as Akhenaten. Akhenaten ruled ancient Egyptian society in the 13th century B.C. and has put its mark on history by casting aside the pharaonic pantheon of gods in favor of a single sun deity. Quite an achievement, almost what the Roman Emperor Constantinus did for Christianity. The only minor thing was that the old religion was restored after his death.

The marriage was

fruitful (although he was married at least to another 5 women) and she gave birth to six daughters:

  • Meritaten: Before year one or the very beginning of year one (1356 BC)
  • Meketaten: Year 1 or three (1349 BC)
  • Ankhesenpaaten: Year unknown
  • Neferneferuaten Tasherit: Year 6 (1344 BC)
  • Neferneferure: Year 9 (1341 BC).
  • Setepenre: Year 11 (1339 BC).

Funny thing to start the counting of years with each new Pharaoh and such a nice thing thing for eternal youth.

Through Ankhesenpaaten, also known as Ankhesenamen, the mother-in-law of the famous Pharaoh Tutankhamun.

The strange thing – at least to our current western culture – was that Ankhesenpaaten and Tutankhamun shared the same father. But there is more. This guy (the father) later married the younger sister of Ankhesenpaaten. It is not clear to me if this happened when Nefertiti was still alive. At least we can say that Pharaohs had a way to go with woman. So where is the value of being an Ancient Babe?

I have studied the books

to find a clue about the origin of the name as it is still unknown. Many others have researched the ancient books and didn’t find a thing. My philosophy is however to keep it simple and thanks to modern technology I might have found the final clue… and luckily – au contraire to the lady herself – the flower is still for sale.

While researching this subject

I found that a yacht was called after her to sail the Americas Cup… Nefertiti came very close to defending the America’s Cup in 1962 but unfortunately didn’t make it. Not believing in coincidences, I am sure this yacht contains somehow a clue about the Holy Grail I’m looking for…
