    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.

    Queen Tiye was the grandmother of King Tut. Her son was Akhenaten, Tut’s father, husband of Nefertiti. Tiye reigned during the New Kingdom in the 18th dynasty—a period that is considered one of the most prolific eras of building and culture in Ancient Egypt (Kemet).
