Tof, merci Rozette.

Jacquelyn Williamson: "Thus the queen became the embodiment of the goddess Isis’s magical and sexual abilities."
...
“We should not be so quick to assume [the powerful, independent] representations [of her] were a reflection of reality. It is tempting to place a feminist and anachronistic interpretation on the evidence. After all, we want to see Nefertiti as equal to Akhenaten. That impression should be nuanced with the understanding that she was presented as powerful and strong when Akhenaten wanted her to be so.”
