Romer's Egypt and the related series Ancient Lives are both on YouTube and essential watching.

I see U of Manchester requires two letters of recommendation. For those of us that have not stepped on a college campus in many, many years, how did you satisfy this requirement?

Akhenaten's version of Re was the sun disc itself - the visual manifestation of Re.

Tiye probably died while Akhenaten was on the throne and it is possible that she was in KV55 either initially or after a move from Amarna. In any case her shrine was defaced but only to remove Akhenat ...

Yes there could have been religious reasons why that mummy lacked jewellry, with many protective amulets referencing different gods and a concept of the afterlife that would have been against Akhenate ...

Pure speculation, but I wonder if the use of -aten names stopped at a certain point around year 8 and this may point to the year that Tutankhaten was born?

Baketaten was also depicted alive and pr ...

I think Akhenaten had sons just not with Nefertiti. He had 4 wives we know of.

I donít think Smenkhkare ruled after Neferneferuaten- the latter had 3 years and seems to have instigated a return to ...

I agree. Tiye had a hand in Akhenaten's choice of wife - she is shown with him in very early depictions (the king as Amenhotep IV). So we know that like his father, Akhenaten was young when he became ...

I think it's entirely plausible that some of the changes were very rapid - the status quo until year 16 (Akhenaten sole pharoah, Neferneferuaten-Nefertiti as queen), then Smenkhkare and Meritaten - we ...

I don't think Meritaten was an Ankhepurure for the simple reason that she is named as queen alongside cartouches of Akhenaten and Neferneferuaten.

Carter box 001k, found in KV62 has this inscripti ...

This all seems to fit my pet theory / speculation then that Nefertiti could be the daughter of either Ay or Anen - Tiye's brothers - and an unknown wife.

My favourite is Anen because he was defini ...

Some further thoughts I had since posting a couple of hours ago.

Meritaten, as in the case of Sitamun in the previous reign, was the eldest daughter by the GRW and as such should by around year 14 ...

It is totally plausible that Smenkhkare was Akhenaten's oldest son. He had other wives besides Nefertiti.

As the example of Hatchepsut and Tuthmosis II proves, it was valid to marry the eldest dau ...

We don't know if the chapel does associate Tuthmose with Amenhotep before the latter's death - he and Hatchepsut did more work on it. This may have been part of their work to further legitimise their ...
