Thutmose I, II, III, Siptah, Merenptah and Sety I, II The four female
mummies, will be queens Hastshepsut, Ahmose-Nefetari, Ti, and Ahmose-Meret
This has been decided upon after moving their respective coffins
to the new location and preparing them for their arrival. All selected mummies
were carefully scanned and prepared for the move for the past 14 months since
they have been in the same location receiving visitors for almost 120 years.
The parade is expected to receive huge international recognition and was
postponed until the Tahrir square renovation was completed.
