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.
I was feeling inspired for today’s quote of the day, by my best friend Jodi! We have so much love and appreciation The Mummy… “Hey Beni! Looks to me like you’re on the wrong side of the river!” … Rick O'Connell is hilarious, can just hear the way he says this line now 😂😍👏🏼🔥
