This large volume accompanies a major exhibition at the Grimaldi Forum in Monaco which focuses, for the first time, on Egypt's queens. The book contains a well-illustrated catalogue of the objects displayed, including visual portrayals of queens, objects owned by queens, objects related to the exercise of royal power, and inscriptions. It also, however, contains a substantial amount of entirely new research, with fifteen essays forming the remainder of the book. Topics include the archaeology of palaces and tombs, the harem, portraying the queen, the religious role of the queen, the exercise of power, and Egyptian queens in myth and popular perception.
