Queen Tia'a
Birth: unknown
Death: unknown

Egyptian Monarch. She was the secondary wife of Amenhotep II, the seventh ruler of the 18th dynasty c. 1427 BC, and mother of his heir Thutmosis IV. Very little is known about her as Amenhotep II never allowed publicity for his wives as some pharaohs had. Scholars believe that the lack of recognition of his queens and princesses was consciously done, restricting them and their ambitions after the example of Hatshepsut, who had kept his father, Tuthmosis III, from the throne for many years. Tia'a was interred in KV 32 which was never finished, and was not decorated. Although the tomb has not been fully excavated, the discovery a canopic chest bearing the queen's cartouche allowed the tomb owner to be identified. (bio by: Iola)
