Egypt During the Reign of Akhenaton

Tey

Ay's wife and Queen Nefertiti's "Nurse".

On Ay's usurpation of the throne she became Queen - pushing the rightful heiress, Ankhespaaton into the background.

At the time that Ay took over the throne he is seen in the company of Ankhespaaton and Tey drops the name of "chief wife" - however she is soon reinstated - possibly after the death of Ankhespaaton.
