Born as Sit Nesu Ankhesenpaaten, the third daughter of Akhenaten and his Great Royal Wife, Nefertiti, she was a princess who should have faded into obscurity with the death of her father.
Instead, she married the young boy who was to become--because of the chance preservation of his small tomb--one of the most famous names in history: Tutankhamen.
