Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve probably heard, seen, or come across the spectacular event of the Pharoah’s Golden parade that took place on Saturday evening. While the entire ceremony and event were mesmerizing, it also gave us the chance to identify and get familiar with the mummies being transported.
One of the 22 mummies being transported was Queen Tiye (1398-1338 B.C.). The royal mummy was Amenhotep III’s wife, mother of Amenhotep IV, Queen Nefertiti’s mother-in-law, and Tutankhamun’s grandmother.
