Neferti (Queen of Kemet, Egypt)

Queen Neferti is most remembered for her bold decision to end the longstanding war between lower Kemet and Upper Kemet. In order to pacify existing tensions between the two warring sides, she made a strategic move to marry the Pharaoh of Lower Kemet, Ramses II. Along with her husband,  Neferti established the cult of Aten, the sun god, and promoted Egyptian artwork that was radically different from its predecessors.
