Nefertiti (ca. 1370 BC – ca. 1330 BC) 

Many eurocentrics, who have nothing better to do than cut and paste from Arthur Kemp’s erroneous “History of the White Race”, have often claimed the beautiful Nefertiti as a “white” and “unmixed” queen of Egypt. That is easily disproven, as the bloodline of Nefertiti herself can be traced back to Seqenenre Taa II, a pharaoh of the 17th dynasty, which many Egyptologists believe to be of Nubian extraction. His Nubian heritage alone renders the entire 18th dynasty a mullato one, even if many of its members share distinctly caucasoid traits, such as the chestnut-colored hair of Tuthmosis IV, and Amenhotep II’s wavy brown head and fair skin. By today’s crude racial classifications this goes as long as one follows the “one-drop” rule constituted in America, where one drop of African blood renders one a “black”, no matter what.

She is most noted for being the Great Royal Wife (chief consort) of the Egyptian Pharaoh Akhenaten. Nefertiti and her husband were known for sparking one of the earliest forms of monotheism in history, in which they started to worship one god, Aten.
