Princess of the First Dynasty

princess-of-the-first-dynasty

An Egyptian princess from the period known as the First Dynasty (3100-2890 BC). This period is so named because it was the first dynasty when singular Pharaohs ruled the whole country, beginning with Narmer’s conquest of Lower (northern) Egypt from the south (Upper Egypt). The necklace this princess is wearing is based on an actual one made from cornelian, garnet, and coral which was uncovered in a First Dynasty tomb.
