Queen Tiye (1415-1340 B.C.)

This celebrated Nubian queen was the beloved and honored wife of Amen-Hetep III , who was one of the world's mightiest Pharaohs and conquerors.

King Amen-Hetep III, had a very deep and unusual affection for Queen Tiye. In addition to the usual titles of a King's wife, Tiye is described as "Royal" daughter and "Royal" sister, when she was neither the daughter or the sister of a king, but of parents who were not of royal lineage.

The full queenly titles which Tiye held in common with the great heiress princesses of Egypt, were bestowed on her by Amen-Hetep III, and were honorary.

Although Tiye was a girl of common birth, she was a person of very strong character. Evident from records, she was a beautiful young Black queen. A woman of great intellect, ability, and a powerful influence. She shared the crown with her husband as though she had been its lineal heiress. Queen Tiye had such an important part in the affairs of Egypt, that foreign diplomats often appealed directly to her in matters affecting certain international relations.

Queen Tiye was a full-blooded African. Her son, Akhenaton and his wife, Nefertiti are the parents of King Tutankhamen , who is also known as "King Tut."

As a symbol of the love Amen-Hetep III, had for Queen Tiye, he declared that so she was treated in life as his equal, she would be depicted in death. At the time of her death, she was given a full "Royal" burial.

T he Afrikan Holocaust (african holocaust) is not one project, but rather a theme containing numerous projects, which are concerned with the African experience all over the world. Our history did not begin with slavery and so for this project to be complete Afrika in its totalality must be addressed; pre and post slavery..,

T he scars of slavery transcend the physical and lie rife in our communities, these scars have been dreadfully integrated into our lives and serve as one of the fundamental components undermining our self-worth and development. The key to uplifting the African psyche and spirit starts in understanding who we are and where we are from. Once we have acquired this knowledge, it will serve as a catalyst for self-respect and a much needed self-determination. Afrikan Holocaust. Afrikan holocaust, Afrikan Holocaust.
