New Kingdom QueensGreat Royal Wives - The People
The New Kingdom Period of Egypt spanned from 1550 BC to 1069 BC, and covered the 18th to 20th Pharaonic Dynasties. In World history it is known as the Bronze Age and the height of Ancient Egyptian power.
The rulers and their wives took a proactive route to guarding Egypt’s borders, carving out an empire using their allies as buffers. Many of today’s best-known Rulers of this period were Pharaoh Hatshepsut, Pharaoh Akhenaten and Queen Nefertiti, Pharaoh Seti I and Queen Tuya, Pharaoh Ramses II and Queen Nefertari, Pharaoh Amenhotep III and Queen Tiye, and of course Pharaoh Tutankhamun and Queen Ankhesenamun.
This was also another golden time for building projects with the Architects Amenhotep and Senenmut being encouraged to work for the Royal Family.
