Submitted to the British Board of Film Censors by E. J. Fancey and passed with a "U" certificate (for all ages) on 19 April 1963. Eventual distributors S.F. managed to get the film a three week run in London's West End and it opened at the Gala Royal on 25 April 1963. Hardly appropriately, S.F. selected German X-film For Love and Others (1959) as the supporting feature. Queen of the Nile did not get a general release on the major circuits in the UK, but was distributed on an optional basis to a fair number of cinemas. After disappearing for 25 years it re-surfaced on the ITV network in 1991.
Amenhopis IV changed his name to Akhenaten after converting to the worship of the Aton, and his capital was Akhet-Aton, not Thebes.
West German theatrical version was cut by approx. 14 minutes. Only in 2020 the uncut version was released on Blu-ray/DVD.
