I was reading on a website that there was a queen called Ahotep and she led something called the 'Isis conspiracy' but didn't elaborate on what that conspiracy was. Does anyone know about it?
And is it true that one of the egyptian queens (her name was Sobek-something, i don't remember now) had blonde hair? Confused I also saw this written on the website.

Hello isisinacrisis

Do you mean queen Hetepheres II (daughter of King Khufu)?

Another one? No, it's another queen called Sobek-something, can't remember now, but the website I saw says it's very unlikely that she was blonde, although I did see 'blonde' hair in an Egyptian exhibition-it was a patch of light curls taken from the scalp of a mummy, whcih I thought were just faded with age, but then there was a braid from a wig on the scalp, and the braid was black hair.
But this is a pretty controversial topic, which could be interesting to discuss further provided there are no arguments...

What about this Isis conspiracy of Ahotep? Anyone know about it?

Hello, isisinacrisis

It's Sobek-Nefru, 8th Queen of the Twelfth Dynasty?

"Sobek-Nefru was a half sister of Amenemhet IV. It is possible that she began as regent for an infant son before claiming the throne in her own right. Manetho mentions her in his list of Egyptian rulers and she also appears in the Turin Canon. A Nubian Nilometer is dated to the 3rd year of her reign and a cylindrical seal bears her name and title. Three headless statues of her were found in the Faiyum, and a part of Amenemhet III’s Labyrinth can be attributed to her. Sobek-Nefru was very famous and adored by the Egyptian since she is said to have had blond hair. This information is very weak because blond hair was generally unknown in Egypt of the 2nd millenium BC. It's told that she was a very tough but couragious woman, very intellectual and well-mannered. During her reign the Hyksos trive invaded Egpyt and it was Sobek-Nefru, who lately gave her country into the hands of the enemy in order to prevent war and bloodbathes. She finally comitted suicide with all the members of her court before the Hyksos leader came up to the palace of Memphis." Source
