Egyptian Princess Fawzia Fuad

The daughters of a king who did not go on to become the wife or mother of a king joined minor sons in slipping into obscurity. An exception to this are the daughters of Akhenaten and Nefertiti, who were often depicted with their mother and father. It is likely that minor daughters were brought up in the harem, where they probably had religious duties and helped in the production of textiles. There is some evidence that after the New Kingdom they were dissuaded from marrying, as this could result in troublesome contenders to the throne.
