Anyone able to suggest some controversies that would be worth looking into - Akhenaten and Tut aside? Preferably New Kingdom (my fave. period) But I'm open to whatever you think is interesting!

My personal favorites, although I don't know if you would call them controversies, are:

How much power did the family from Akhmin really have. They included Queen Tiye (wife Amenhotep), her parents Yuya and Tuya, her brother Anen (2nd prophet of Amun), possibly Aye, and just maybe Nefertiti and Mutnodjemet. Was this family still moving in high circles after the Amarna period?

Who was Bay, the Chancellor to Queen Tawosret?

Were Queens Nefertari and Isetnofret, wives to Ramses II, somehow related to the 18th dynasty?

These have been extensively discussed on the board.

Will be nice to hear what some other peoples interests are Very Happy
