so it's probably a dimunitive of a longer (perhaps not) name. like jane/joan, fanny/frances, liz/lizzie/eliza/elizabeth etc.


Hmp funny u should mention that....

I think it is Tadukhipa-kiya, and I think they called her Kiya for short. I still say that Tadukhipa had to have been very important at the court perhaps in a similar position as her aunt Gildukhepa. Her power would've rivaled Nefertiti or either greater than or equal to Nefertiti's power. A true force to reckon with, if u ask me. Perhaps if anything was to happen to her, thier would have been big trouble in little Amarna.

The name Kiya does sound kind of plane jane though.

Evidence? "Think" is not enough...

The name "Kiya" is an Egyptian womens name and is occupied as that also in the 19th Dynasty (see my post: Thu Jan 23, 2014 7:10 pm). With look at all the other foreign women in the harims of the pharaohs before and after Akhenaton and there non-existent significance in public and religious area (even if they have the title of a Great Royal Wife and were the daughters of a real evenly matched king as under Ramses II), I see no reason for Taduchipa to accept anything else. The once again missing documents for your "thinking" not to mention...
