I often wonder what became of the spare sons of kings such as Amenhotep II who had quite a few sons. Siatum, son of Thutmose IV, is known to have had a daughter Nebetia, but there's no mention of who the mother was. Surely these spare sons would have been allowed to marry well bred women? Some died young but some were given important jobs.
Its just that I wonder if this is the sort of origin for Nefertiti and maybe Smenkhkare, as royal titles (such as Kings Son) would no longer apply in that case. Yet they would be from the right social and family background to retain contact with the royal family.
