Description

Akhenaten was an Egyptian pharaoh who ruled during the Eighteenth Dynasty of the New Kingdom period of Ancient Egypt. He is famous for changing the traditional religion of Egypt from the worship of many gods to the worship of a single god named Aten.

Some historians think that Akhenaten served as a “co-pharaoh” alongside his father for several years. Others do not. Either way, Akhenaten took over as pharaoh around the year 1353 BC when his father died. Under his father’s rule, Egypt had become one of the most powerful and wealthy nations in the world. The civilization of Egypt was at its peak around the time Akhenaten took control.

 EGYPTIAN GIFTS AKHENATEN STATUE

Egyptian gifts Akhenaten statue is noted for abandoning Egypt’s traditional polytheistic religion and introducing Atenism, worship centered on Aten. The views of Egyptologists differ whether Atenism should be considered as absolute monotheism, or whether it was monolatry, syncretism, or henotheism.[12][13] This culture shift away from traditional religion was not widely accepted. After his death, Akhenaten’s monuments were dismantled and hidden, his statues were destroyed, and his name excluded from lists of rulers compiled by later pharaohs.[14] Traditional religious practice was gradually restored, notably under his close successor Tutankhamun, who changed his name from Tutankhaten early in his reign.[15] When some dozen years later rulers without clear rights of succession from the Eighteenth Dynasty founded a new dynasty, they discredited Akhenaten and his immediate successors, referring to Akhenaten himself as “the enemy” or “that criminal” in archival records.[16][17]

Family

Akhenaten, Nefertiti and their children

The future Akhenaten was born Amenhotep, a younger son of pharaoh Amenhotep III and his principal wife Tiye. Crown Prince Thutmose, Amenhotep III and Tiye’s eldest son and Akhenaten’s brother, was recognized as Amenhotep III’s heir. Akhenaten also had four or five sisters, Sitamun, Henuttaneb, Iset, Nebetah, and possibly Beketaten.[27] Thutmose’s early death, perhaps around Amenhotep III’s thirtieth regnal year, meant that Akhenaten was next in line for Egypt’s throne.[28]

Egyptian king Akhenaten statue was married to Nefertiti, his Great Royal Wife; the exact timing of their marriage is unknown, but evidence from the pharaoh’s building projects suggests that this happened either shortly before or after Akhenaten took the throne.[11] Egyptologist Dimitri Laboury suggested that the marriage took place in Akhenaten’s fourth regnal year.[29] A secondary wife of Akhenaten named Kiya is also known from inscriptions. Some have theorized that she gained her importance as the mother of Tutankhamun, Smenkhkare, or both. Some Egyptologists, such as William Murnane, proposed that Kiya is a colloqial name of the Mitanni princess Tadukhipa, daughter of the Mitanni king Tushratta, widow of Amenhotep III, and later wife of Akhenaten.[30][31] Akhenaten’s other attested consorts are the daughter of Šatiya, ruler of Enišasi, and a daughter of Burna-Buriash II, king of Babylonia.[32]

Early life

Akhenaten’s elder brother Thutmose, shown in his role as High Priest of Ptah. Akhenaten became heir to the throne after Thutmose died during their father’s reign.

Egyptologists know very little about Akhenaten’s life as prince. Donald B. Redford dated his birth before his father Amenhotep III’s 25th regnal year, c. 1363–1361 BC, based on the birth of Akhenaten’s first daughter, which likely happened fairly early in his own reign.[4][48] The only mention of his name, as “the King’s Son Amenhotep,” was found on a wine docket at Amenhotep III’s Malkata palace, where some historians suggested Akhenaten was born. Others contended that he was born at Memphis, where growing up he was influenced by the worship of the sun god Ra practiced at nearby Heliopolis.[49] Redford and James K. Hoffmeier stated, however, that Ra’s cult was so widespread and established throughout Egypt that Akhenaten could have been influenced by solar worship even if he did not grow up around Heliopolis.[50][51]

Some historians have tried to determine who was Akhenaten’s tutor during his youth, and have proposed scribes Heqareshu or Meryre II, the royal tutor Amenemotep, or the vizier Aperel.[52] The only person we know for certain served the prince was Parennefer, whose tomb mentions this fact.[53]
