The decorations in the women’s tombs in the Valley of the Queens do not include pharaohs’ images or names (with the single exception of Tomb QV 51, where cartouches of Ramesses VI appear on the jambs of the sarcophagus chamber doorway). This appears to be a rule of decorum allowing the queen to become identified with Osiris and the sun god and thus to achieve regeneration. If the king were present, it would have been more appropriate for him, both as king and as a man, to identify himself with the gods. Royal women, on the other hand, were identified with Hathor.
