Most famously portrayed as Anck-Su-Namun in the movie The Mummy, her true history is entirely different from on the big screen. She was the third daughter of Nefertiti, and married her half-brother, Tutankhamun, at the age of 13. Her older sister died while giving birth to her father’s child, who also tried to have a child with Ankhesenamun as well. She would later have two miscarriages to her husband also. After Tutankhamun’s death it is believed she may have married Ay, her grandfather, but there is no evidence of this in his tomb, and her own tomb is yet to be discovered. It is also believed she may have been the first wife of her own father, before he married Nefertiti. After Ay’s death, all trace of her in historical records disappears.

Anck-Su-Namun [x], Pharaoh’s mistress from The Mummy franchise.
I absolutely loved her in the first movie. She was only in the first few scenes, but boy was she gorgeous. Not to mention badass, taking control of her own destiny and deciding she would much rather be Imhotep’s lover than Pharaoh’s mistress.
