Egyptian Queen Nefertari Scarab, 19th Dynasty, 1295-1186 BC

A carnelian scarab with inscription to the underside of Queen Nefertari (died circa 1250 BC); mounted in a 19th century gold swivel frame pendant.

Nefertari, also known as Nefertari Meritmut, was one of the Great Royal Wives (or principal wives) of Ramesses the Great. Nefertari means ‘the beautiful one has come’ and Meritmut means 'Beloved of [the Goddess] Mut’. She is one of the best known Egyptian queens. Her lavishly decorated tomb is the largest and most spectacular in the Valley of the Queens.

—  Prince Harry. The story goes that one Christmas, Her Majesty was given a mobile telephone and asked him to activate a standard voicemail greeting. She was only told of the hoax message when her private secretary, Robin Janvrin, called up and ‘got the shock of his life,’ according to an aide, William and Harry by Katie Nicholl (This is the best one yet! 😂)

Nostalgic colors, oddball characters, symmetrical framing – the Wes Anderson stamp is as recognizable as Margot Tenenbaum’s bob. Bad Dads, an exhibition in New York, brings together 70 artists obsessed with his films.

The Signs As A Royal Family
  • Aries:The king; constantly beheading people who upset him
  • Taurus:A prince; always sleeping and overindulging himself
  • Gemini:Sagittarius and Capricorn's daughter (a princess; sixth in line to the throne after her cousins and father); indecisive about whether or not she wants to be queen someday
  • Cancer:A princess; is the one who is always nice to the servants and people of her father's kingdom
  • Leo:The queen; constantly demanding new elegant things
  • Virgo:The king's mother (technically still considered a queen); constantly picking at her sons' wives and telling them they aren't worthy of being queens
  • Libra:The king's younger sister's only child (a princess; eighth in line to the throne); usually brings sunshine to the castle, despite the trauma inflicted upon her being an orphan
  • Scorpio:A prince; likes to play tricks on the people in the castle
  • Sagittarius:The king's brother (third in line to the throne; a prince); usually hatching plans to kill his brother and nephews so that he can take the throne
  • Capricorn:Sagittarius's wife (technically a princess by marriage); encourages her husband to thwart his brother, because she wants to rule the kingdom
  • Aquarius:Sagittarius and Capricorn's second daughter (a princess; seventh in line to the throne); despite being younger, she is the one her father wants to take the throne one day, because she's like the son he never had
  • Pisces:A princess; constantly begging her father not to behead people

Pandemonium and Radiance’s relationship is quite lively and normal for two creatures born from a Sun Goddess and a Lord of Chaos. What I love most about these two is that even though they are utterly different they get along so well and understand each other struggles and aspirations. Ever since they were little they always got along, even if wasn’t that obvious to others because Pan was almost always trying to pull pranks on Radiance (which never succeed because she would outsmart him).

Pan is the goofball but he knows when his sister is in turmoil and is willing to move heaven and earth to see her happy, even if that will put him trouble, because he knows how much Radiance has to deal with as a princess, and she usually doesn’t put her own needs above everyone else.

Radiance knows her role as a princess is very important and that she must always be ready for her subjects’ needs, but whenever she’s able she’s willing to twist that rule if it means to help her brother when he entirely needs it. She doesn’t care if she’s toyed with or stepped on, she will just ignore them and walk away, but if someone tries to do that to her brother she’s not going to sit around and let them get away with it. She’s not a violent pony, usually the problems are solved just with words, but when that’s not enough, she’ll use some “magic tricks” to persuade them. And it works every time.
