Egyptian Princess Fawzia Fuad

Some women confirmed as King’s Daughter went on to become the King’s Wife or even King’s Great Wife, but we don’t know for sure what this entailed. In at least one case, Bintanath the daughter and wife of Ramessess II, there was a child born following the marriage. As it seems rather unlikely the king would allow another man to have a child with his wife this would seem to prove the marriage was consummated. This was certainly not the norm, for Egyptian society, but may have been seen as another way in which the king was more like the gods (many of whom were in brother-sister pairings) than ordinary people.
