ACO Isidora

Isidora, the God's Wife of Amun in 38 BCE

The God's Wife of Amun was a religious figure in ancient Egyptian who was the highest ranking priestess of the god Amun. The priestess was stationed at the temple of Karnak in Thebes, and like the Oracle of Amun in Siwa, they had both political and religious importance.  

By the late 1st century BCE, Isidora who, succeeded her mother Nitokris as the God's Wife of Amun, began using an Apple of Eden to pursue vengeance for her mother's death. Isidora was later assassinated by the Hidden One Bayek of Siwa in the Tomb of Tutankhamun.[1]

Behind the scenes

Historically, the position of the God's Wife of Amun was abolished when the Persians under Cambyses II conquered Egypt. It is unknown whether the post was restored when Alexander the Great liberated it from Persian rule.

Nitokris also shares the same name with a God's Wife of Amun from the Twenty-sixth Dynasty of Egypt.
