Nofretete Das Leben der schönsten Frau der WeltgeschichteBaar Was deze vrouw van wie de tijdloze schoonheid ons nog steeds fascineert een geschenk van de goden Of duidt haar naam erop dat zij uit een verband afkomstig was en Egypte een excentrieke farao huwde In eik geval bleek zij geenszins het bevallige speeltje dat haar echtgenoot farao Achnätòn. This book is a terrific complement to Akhenaten Dweller in Truth by Mahfouz novel I would have appreciated the background for reading Mahfouz's historical novel which is outstanding probably the best book I've ever read Vandenberg is not an historian and speculation abounds speculative speculation But I found the archaeological basis for this study to be informative and an incentive now to go back and read Mahfouz's novel for another time Also the biography is well written non tedious and a uick read

Zij is en blijft een van de meest raadselachtige vrouwen uit de wereldgeschiedenis Waar zij vandaan kwam hoe en waar haar opwindende 'leven tot een einde kwam we zullen de waarheid wel nooit te weten komen Alleen al haar naam 'Nefertete de schoonheid die opdoemt` is voor verschillende uitleg vat. Nefertiti An Archaeological Biography works neither as a reference book nor as a work of historical fiction though it is closer to succeeding at the latter than existing as an objective and rational look at the evidenceWritten in 1975 first translated into English in 1978 Philipp Vandenberg's Nefertiti is a 160 page sketch on what the author thinks Nefertiti's life was like Published when it was it is natural that Vandenberg does not draw on the most recent theories on Nefertiti and Amarna – indeed he seems to be writing from a time when Nefertiti was still largely considered to be a Mitanni princess and Kiya was yet to be discoveredEven considering this Vandenberg's archaeological biography is particularly light on facts or acknowledgement of existing evidences Sure sometimes Vandenberg sometimes references a theory that he then adopts but he never explains why he does this – whether it makes sense or has evidence supporting it Nope it's here is a theory this now our truth for the rest of the book and if I'm honest I think Vandenberg picks the theories he does because they're dramatic andor shockingEven fringe theories such as Immanuel Velikovsky's assertion that Akhenaten was Oedipus is given no interrogation as Vandenberg accepts it as fact and runs with it So is it any better as a work of historical fiction No not really Certainly it has the ingredients to be a historically inaccurate rip roaring yarn I wouldn't be surprised at all if this was a major source for Pauline Gedge's The Twelfth Transforming but at 160 pages it reads like a summary of events with a few academic or pseudo academic references tossed in It lacks the depth to bring the characters and the context to lifeThere is one redeeming point – though not enough to garner another star While I don't trust this book anywhere near far as I can throw it it's a very light book it is easily written and understandable – the pages do fly by At the end of the day Nefertiti An Archaeological Biography is a waste of space as a reference book If I started picking apart all of the errors and issues found in the book I'd be ranting about nearly every paragraph I have better things to do with my time

This book wasn't nearly as imformitive as I thought it should have been Most of it seemed to be focusing on speculation and theories I have a hard time calling this a nonfiction when most of it was based on speculation There is little information known for sure about Nefertiti I don't have a problem with hypothizing about her life and such but if so it should have been clearly stated that it is speculation than fact
