The present volume is concerned with the posthumous cult of Amenhotep I and his mother Ahmes Nefertari, which starts in the private tombs of the Theban Necropolis nearly 200 years after their deaths. A chronological examination of the representations in the tombs has made it possible to show the origin of the cult and also to find an explanation for the Queen´s black skin, which is closely connected with the origin of the cult. In addition, these factors point to a connection with the veneration of whichever royal house was reigning.
