Tia (or Tiaa) was an ancient Egyptian queen during the Eighteenth Dynasty period (1550 - 1292 BC). Married to Pharoah Amenhotep II, she was also mother to the next Pharoah, Thutmose IV. It was during her son's reign that she finally earned the title of Great Royal Wife, which had been held by Amenhotep's mother, while he was alive. She also held the title of King's Mother. After her own death, Tia was given a royal funeral, and buried in the Valley of the Kings.
