The Reign of Tawosret

(p.111) 6 The Reign of Tawosret
Poisoned Legacy

Aidan Dodson

American University in Cairo Press

Although Tawosret appears to have granted Siptah a burial, it was one that denied his status as a king, and was combined with Tawosret's desire to refocus her royal affiliations on her husband, rather than the young man for whom she had ruled for half a decade. Tawosret's queenly sarcophagus—ultimately reused for burying a Twentieth Dynasty prince—was replaced by a more massive piece in typical kingly style. Tawosret continued the year-reckoning of Siptah, and thus some Year 6 and all Year 7 and Year 8 documents from the period should be attributed to her reign. Material from this period is scarce, and only one image of Tawosret specifically meant to represent her as a king seems to survive.
