Ahmose-Nefertari was a daughter of Seqenenre Tao and Ahhotep I, and royal sister and the great royal wife of pharaoh, Ahmose I. She was also the first Queen of the 18th Dynasty in Ancient Egypt. Along with her son, Amenhotep I, she was worshiped as a patron of the tomb-builders at Deir el-Medina many years after her death.
The mummy identified as that of Ahmose-Nofretari was that of an old woman with well-worn teeth and balding scalp. A wig, consisting of plaits of human hair tied to strings, had been placed upon her head. Her body had been damaged in antiquity by tomb robbers, and both her hands (as well as part of her right forearm) had been broken off and were missing.
There were no known signs of disease found in the remains of Ahmose-Nofretari.
