Ancient Egypt queen 'killed by poison in flask' - The Independent
German researchers have discovered a carcinogenic substance in a flask believed to have belonged to Queen Hatshepsut, who ruled Egypt 3,500 years ago, raising the possibility that she may have accidentally poisoned herself.

Did Skin Cream Kill Egypt’s Queen Hatshepsut?

It's not only the Egyptian royal history that is full of incest, so is both the Egyptian and Greek mythologies. If being familiar with myths and stories full of incest I wouldn't think that the step to actually marrying a family member is that far away, especially when living in a country where royal incest was accepted and almost expected.

I don't know if that would be accidental,or due to her dentals..

In the mummy rooms of the Egyptian Museum in Cairo,I was eye to eye with Seti,Ramses II,Hatshepsut and Thutmosis III.

A "note" next to the remains of Hatshepsut said:Hatshepsut was an obese woman with toothache".....Just like that and just that.Totally
denying who she had been,just remembered as an obese woman with toothache...You'd wish people would remember you for a tad more then that....

One of two shaft used for the funeral of Farao Djoser,as Imhotep had them designed as the actual entrance of the Pyramid..!!..Still intact both shafts are 20 meters deep and a long long corridor leads from the bottom to the pyramid underneath the entire lenght of the square as shown in the pics above.

Mindboggling but true nevertheless,Imhotep designed that.There is NO other entrance into the pyramid...Not that one could enter,it needs stiff renovation/preservation as the pics below show...Nevertheless,I never saw anything else that stood arround for 7213 years..

This would be huge, but i understand from other articles that other egyptologists have their doubts.. personally i hope that she will be found

:previous:Oh I am hoping this is true, being an amateur Egyptologist and love studying and reading the subject, this in my lifetime would be such a joy to see. Imagine all the wonders and discoveries if so........Zahi Hawass would be in heaven if he could have been there, it is a shame that he is no longer in control of the Antiquities Dept for he has worked and devoted his life to preserving the lost items of ancient Egypt. If you see more info on this please let us know...and I will do the same. Thank You.

I hope it's true and that there will be a move forward to verify. How incredible it could be to actually find the tomb of Nefertiti. What an interesting face she had.
