Fell from balcony to her death
Nefertiri was the daughter of Pharaoh Seti I.
Nefertiri was left motherless as a young woman and was confronted with the truth that her father was to marry Anck-Su-Namun, a choice by the Pharaoh that angered Nefertiri as Anuck-Su-Namun was a mere concubine. Anck-Su-Namun did nothing to remedy Nefertiri's perception of her, as she carried on her own haughty demeanour and acted as Nefertiri's superior at all given chances, namely when acting as her instructor on how to use blades in duels.

- "You are learning quickly, Nefertiri. I'll have to watch my back.
Yes. And I'll watch mine."

That night, Nefertiri stood atop her balcony, gazing out at Anck-Su-Namun's residence, which was adjacent to her own, and witnessed as Seti had entered the residence. Imhotep, however, had made his presence known and had confronted the Pharaoh with a blade. Nefertiri called out to the Medjai below that her father needed their help, but the damage had by then been done: Seti was mortally stabbed several times by Imhotep and the concubine. Devastated as she witnessed her father's murder, Nefertiri inadvertently leaned too far over the balcony and fell to her death.
Centuries later, Nefertiri's memories were revisited by Evelyn O'Connell, who had come to life as the reincarnated form of Nefertiri herself, with her husband, Rick O'Connell, established as a warrior for God, a Medjai, a connection which Ardeth Bay noted as no mere coincidence, but established by fate itself.
Personality and TraitsEdit
Despite being a dignified Princess of Egypt, Nefertiri was not without considerable fighting skills, which she exhibited when confronting the concubine Anck-Su-Namun, whom she herself resented. Nefertiri was one of the most beautiful young woman with the typical olive skin of an Egyptian, black hair, which she kept long with bluntly-cut bangs, and a penchant for sporting printed gowns.
Behind the ScenesEdit
The actual princess of Egypt was named Nefertiti, but the producers had changed her name to Nefertiri with an "r" instead, in light of viewers most-likely making vulgar jokes about her true name.
