The Princess adopting Moses

The Princess after finding Moses.

She appeared on the episode Moses, and is a very minor Character. Little is known about her. She was the daughter of Ramses II and sister of Merneptah. One day while bathing in the Nile she sees a basket with a baby in it floating down the river. She is shown to be very kind, she took pity on the the infant who'm she named Moses which is Ancient Egyptian for "Child" and Ancient Hebrew for "Drawn Out". She was able to convince her father to let her keep the infant. Jochebed the biological mother of Moses was brought by Miriam, Moses' older sister. Jochebed is made his wet nurse and returns him when he's old enough. Thermuthis raised Moses from the time he was 10 till he was an adult. It's unknown what happened to her.

Trivia Edit

  • In the Jewish religion her name was Bithiah. The Christian religion doesn't give a name. In the Muslim religion her name is Asiya and she was the Queen and wife of the Pharaoh.
  • Josephus the Jewish Philosopher, who had access to many old documents claims her name was Thermuthis. However there is still no historical proof of her existence.
  • Ramses II had around 60 daughters. None of them had the name Thermuthis. Thermuthis was probably the daughter of Thutmose I, Thutmose II, Thutmose III, Amenhotep III, Akhenaton, Ay, Horemheb, Ramses I, or Seti I. Most scholars believe she is the daughter of Seti I. Others believe her and the female pharaoh Hatshepsut are the same person. This would make more sense.
  • In the Bible, she raised Moses from the time he didn't need a wet nurse so probably around 2 or 3. On the show he is around 10.
