Akhenaton - meaning "living spirit of Aten" known before the fifth year of his reign as Amenhotep IV was a Pharaoh (King) of the Eighteenth dynasty of Egypt who ruled for 17 years. His queen was Nefertiti. Akhenaton died perhaps in 1336 BC or 1334 BC.

The elderly couple Yuya and Thuya were courtiers in Egypt 3,800 years ago. Thuya still wears an enigmatic smile that delights the viewer to this day and does not speak her secrets. Despite the plunder of the pair’s grave goods, their mummies remained remarkably well-preserved. And their tomb is said to be one of the most spectacular ever found in the Valley of the Kings – until the discovery of the tomb of their great-grandson, King Tutankhamun.

There is little known about Ankhesenamun (meaning “She lives through Amun” or “Living through Amun”). She was initially known through her birth name of Ankhesenpaaten (meaning “She lives through the Aten” or “Living through the Aten”) in her earlier years of life. Written, throughout history, are variations of her name as this was altered during her marriage to Tutankhamun. She was approximately thirteen years old when she married Tutankhamun who was most likely her half-brother.
