Abstract

This paper is ostensibly an investigation of whether royal women of the Amarna period in Egypt were perceived as figures who could be supplicated for divine assistance in matters of personal fertility. Concurrently, it forms an exercise in approaching the blurred horizon between state and private religion in an Amarna period context. It offers the inclusion of female royalty in private fertility cults as an illustration of the flexibility inherent in the Amarna royal cult, a result of its transposition onto, and interaction with, the private religious landscape of the Eighteenth Dynasty.
