- "I dreamed tonight. And in my dream Apedemak spoke to me and told me what I must do."
"Tell me this dream, husband."
- ―Taharka and Tiyy
Queen Tiyy was the wife of Pharaoh Taharka, the ruler of the hidden island of Kerma. She was the mother of Amenirdis, Shabako, and Aniba. She was a good mother to her children. She cared for Aniba at all times during his sickness until the day he died. She never lost faith in what her daughter, Amenirdis, could accomplish and believed in her at all times. After her husband left to find a cure for Aniba's sickness, she ruled over Kerma by herself.
