Valley of the Queens

Luxor, Egypt

The Valley of the Queens is a place near Luxor where wives of Pharaohs were buried in ancient times.

In those times it was known as Ta-Set-Neferu, which means 'the place of the Children of the Pharaoh'. This is because along with the Queens of the 18th, 19th & 29th dynasties, many princes and princesses were also buried with various members of the nobility. The tombs of these individuals were maintained by mortuary priests who performed daily rituals and provided offerings and prayers for the deceased nobility.
