Photographs of 18th Dynasty Rulers

The following photographs are intended to show the racial features of the Egyptian rulers of the 18th dynasty.

This is compatible with my assessment of the racial features of Akhenaton and King Tut. This is the only dynasty in which black features are so prominent. This dynasty also saw great upheaval in the religious and political realm.

Following are the reigns, with assumed dates, and important female figures.

 

Tuthmosis III

Ay

Ahmes Nefertari

 

Nofretete

Thutmose III may have been idealized. Hence the statue may not be a true reproduction.

However we see that Ay is faithfully reproduced. The statue shows his thick lips, prominent cheek bones, and bulging eyes.

Ahmes Nefertari, although idealized, is shown in black paint.

Nefertiti is very light colored, although she would have trouble passing as white in the modern world.
