In Allen's paper titled "The Amarna Succession",
the author proposes that there were two Amarna era kings who
intervened between the death of Akhenaten and the succession of
Tutankhamun: (1) Neferneferuaten and (2) Smenkhkare.

Smenkhkare would be the father of Tutankhamun who is not once attested as a son of Akhenaten even in the royal tombs at Amarna. The
female king Neferneferuaten would correspond to Neferneferuaten
Tasherit, Akhenaten's fourth daughter, rather than Meritaten who is
attested as the spouse of Smenkhkare,or Nefertiti who appears to
have predeceased her husband. Allen stresses (on p.15) of his
paper here :

20Succession.pdf

However, why would Smenkhkare take the same prenomen as Neferneferuaten ???? (Ankheperure). Idea

Looking forward to your comments !
