MERETSEGER
Also known as MERTSEGER

Cobra Goddess of Thebes.

She is a coiled cobra with the head of a woman. As Guardian of the Royal Tombs, she ensured their protection by spitting poison at potential grave robbers.

If there's one thing she can't stand, it's noise. Graves and tombs must be utterly silent or she gets very cross. Archeologists into loud music are duly warned.

We are often asked about merchandise. Can we supply the latest Meretseger graphic novel, book or comic? Not to mention role-playing games (RPG), video games, Meretseger movies on DVD, BluRay and so on. To purchase such goodies we suggest you search for a dedicated mythology-based online store - or try Amazon, Ebay or other reputable websites. We offer a wide range of our own merchandise in our online GodShop, but we don't currently sell third party items. Yet!

Visitors often email us asking about Meretseger statues, sculptures or carved figurines of Meretseger. We regret we cannot assist with identifying such items.
