Ancient Egypt Wiki

United with the Beautiful White Crown (ancient Egyptian: ẖnm.t nfr-ḥḏ.t) was an ancient Egyptian honorific title held by the Queen from the Middle Kingdom to the early New Kingdom. During the 12th Dynasty it was also used multiple times by queens as a personal name. The White Crown was one part of the Double Crown of Egypt and is usually interpreted to have represented Upper Egypt, but it is also possible that while the Red Crown represented the king's earthly incarnation, the White Crown represented the eternal, godlike aspect of kingship.[1]
