Nefertiti (ca. 1370 BC – ca. 1330 BC) was the Great Royal Wife of the Egyptian Pharaoh Akhenaten. She and her husband were known for a religious revolution to worship just one god, which was Aten, or the sun disc. Nefertiti was made famous by her bust which is now in Berlin's Neues Museum. The bust is one of the most copied works of ancient Egypt. After Cleopatra, she is the second most famous "Queen" of Ancient Egypt in the Western imagination.
