Egyptian Queen Wife of Nakhtmin Statue

Egyptian Queen statue. This Egyptian Queen's Husband Nakhtmin, held a high position of General during the reign of Pharaoh Tutankhamun of the eighteenth dynasty of Ancient Egypt.

His titles included "the true servant who is beneficial to his lord, the king's scribe," "the servant beloved of his lord," "the fan-bearer on the right-hand of the king," and "the servant who causes to live the name of his lord."

These titles were found on five ushabtis that Nakhtmin offered as funerary presents for Pharaoh Tutankhamun.

He was the heir to the throne during the reign of the Pharaoh Ay though he never became a pharaoh. It is assumed that he died towards the end of the reign of Ay (when he seemingly vanished from all records) and Horemheb, the designated heir of Tutankhamun, became pharaoh instead.

No name is attached except on one that said "wife to the General Nakhtmin."

Nakhtmin may be Aye's son, the man thought by some to be the father of Queen Nefertiti. This is based on his title of It Netjer, often translated as God's Father and thought to mean 'father-in-law' to the King.
