Ohemmaa Tiye, there is no doubt she was a Queen. She was completely unapproachable.

These Egyptologists got most of Queen Tiye (Ohemmaa Tiye) history wrong. That’s why as Abibifuo/Kmtwy/Black people we have to tell our own story.
“—As a widow, Ohemmaa Tiye retained her royal status as Queen, with the additional title of Queen Mother when her son, Akhenaten (Amenhotep IV), became the ruler of Kemet.
Ohemmaa Tiye was elevated to the status of a Goddess by her husband, Amenhotep III, with a temple devoted to her worship in Nubia (modern day Sudan). In Nubia, she was worship as a manifestation of the Goddess Hathor, the Goddess symbolized by a crown with a sun disk between two horns and feathers.—“
