The rulers of Nubia practiced co-rulership between royal husband and wife. A kandake, or queen, had as much or more power as her husband, with the ultimate form of veto—should the king displease the kandake, she could order him to take his own life.
- The background of the artwork of Kandake features a ram-headed sphinx similar to those at Karnak, near Luxor.
