Ahmose-Nefertari

Ahmose-Nefertari was the sister and Great Wife of Ahmose I, the first Pharaoh of ancient Egypt's New Kingdom. At one point her husband lent to her the responsibility of administering temple property, estates, workshops, and treasures. She was also the mother of Amenhotep I and may have served as his regent when he was still a child. Some have suggested that Ahmose-Nefertari was of Nubian descent since she is often painted jet-black in art from her time period, but this coloration may have just as easily symbolized new life (she would later be revered as a goddess of resurrection).
