107b: Queen Tiye (with Dr. Joyce Tyldesley)

The Queen Who Ruled All.


In this episode we look at Queen Tiye, Lady of the Two Lands and mighty power-player in court politics. With me is Dr. Joyce Tyldesley, Research Associate of the Manchester Museum and lecturer in Manchester University's online Egyptology courses. Dr. Tyldesley is an expert on ancient Egyptian women (royal and non-royal) and the role of these people in their society and she generously agreed to help me tell Tiye's story (and some others). We had a great discussion, I hope you enjoy.


This is Part One, focussing on Tiye. Part Two (releasing later) will focus on Nefertiti.


Time period: c.1390 - 1350.

People: Queen Tiye.
