Since the 19th dynasty, the wives of the pharaohs and some of their children were buried in the Valley of the Queens, located near the Valley of the Kings. Now 79 tombs have been found, of which about half have not been identified.
The most luxurious of them is – this is the tomb of Nefertiti, wife of Ramses II. Due to the fact that the tomb was cut in bad limestone, it began to collapse. Only thanks to long-term restoration was it possible to return it to its original appearance.
A small staircase leads to the front hall of the tomb. The hall is covered with images of the gods and the queen in their company. Another staircase leads to the burial hall. The plots of the Book of the Dead were used to paint this hall.
Another interesting tomb – this is not the tomb of the queen, but of the prince Amon-kher-Kophef. This was the son of Ramses III.
