The Tomb of Nefertari


Nefertari, 'Great Bride of the King' Ramesses II, was buried in the richest and most fascinating tomb of the Valley of the Queens. It was discovered in 1904 by Ernesto Schiaparelli, then director of the Egyptian Museum in Turin. The splendor of Nefertari's tomb has no equal among those of the other queens of the era. In this view, the antechamber and part of the first annex can be seen.
