Nefertari

Nefertari was the Great Royal Wife of the Egyptian pharaoh Ramses the Great. - Nefertari's tomb is in the Valley of the Queens. A temple was built for her at Abu Simbel, as well. This beautiful painting from her tomb wall shows a royal name, which you can tell even without reading hieroglyphs, because there is a cartouche in the painting. The cartouche is the oblong with a linear base. It was used to contain a royal name.
