GRAND MOTHER Tiye KV35EL Among the remains in the KV35 cache was an unidentified mummy known until now only as the Elder Lady. DNA has identified this regal beauty as Amenhotep III's wife Tiye, the daughter of Yuya and Tuyu, a nonroyal couple discovered in in their own undisturbed tomb, KV46. The grandmother of Tut, Tiye was embalmed with her left arm bent across her chest---interpreted as a queen's burial pose. Her statue from the temple at Karnak (below) displays a similarly bent left arm.
