Another Queen


Lately I have been reading about queens and The Heretic Queen by Michelle Moran fit right in.

It is the story of the Princess Nefertari's princess's rise to power. Nefertari, was the niece of the famed heretic queen Nefertiti, became part of the court of Pharaoh Seti I after her family was deposed. She was highly intelligent and competitive with the young prince who was to become Ramesses II. It is a wonderful story of a highly intelligent young orphan whose friendship with Ramesses II leads them to the golden age of Egypt.

The book is well written and engaging. I found myself following along with the Internet to gain a deeper understanding of this remarkable young woman.
