DNA analysis identifies this mummy as Queen Tiy (1398-1338 BCE), wife of Amenhotep Ill, mother of Amenhotep IV (Akhenaton), mother-in-law of Queen Nefertiti and grandmother of Tut. Discovered in 1898, it still shows the woman's features, including raven hair. Tiy was one of the most influential women of ancient Egypt, however, her name and her history fell into oblivion for many centuries. It is believed that Tiy, also known as Ty and Teje, lived between 1398 BC and 1338 BC. The story of her life is mysterious, like that of many of the people of that period. Her world collapsed along with the founded capital of her son Akhenaton.
