The pharaoh Amenophis III did not follow the old practice of marrying his sister, but instead married the beautiful and talented Queen Tiye, pictured on the left. Tiye, who is thought to have been a Nubian from Kush, may have arrived in Egypt as the main attraction of a procession like the one we saw in the previous image. Their son, shown on the right, was the famous Akhnaton, who sought to reform to Egyptian religion.
