Akhenaten, Egypt's "heretic" Pharaoh. He began a new monotheistic religion centered around the Aten, a non-anthropomorphic sun god. He also moved the capitol to Amarna, ushering in a period of unusual innovation in Egyptian art and culture. After Akhenaten died, the religion collapsed, Amarna was abandoned, and the old Egyptian priesthood regained power. Subsequent archival records call Akhenaten "the enemy."

Akhenaten and Nefertiti... my favorites....Akhenaten is responsible for moving Egypt from a polytheistic to a monotheistic society. However, after his death the priests of Luxor returned to the old religion and buried his capitol, Amarna, from the face of the earth. He and Nefertiti's images, tombs, etc were defaced in an attempt to destroy any memory of them and their blasphemy.
