Egyptian Crowns
& headdresses

Crowns and headdresses were mostly made of organic materials and have not survived but we know what they looked like from many pictures and statues. The best known crown is from Tutankhamun’s golden death mask.

This was called the Nemes crown (shown above) and was made of striped cloth. It was tied around the head, covered the neck and shoulders, and was knotted into a tail at the back.

The brow was decorated with the “uraeus,” a cobra and vulture.

The Double Crown - the White Crown represented Upper Egypt and the Red Crown, Lower Egypt (the area around the Nile Delta). Sometimes these crowns were worn together and called the Double Crown, and were the symbol of a united Egypt.

There was also a third crown, worn by the kings of the New Kingdom, called the Blue Crown or war helmet.
