CYRIL ALDRED AKHENATEN AND NEFERTITI PDF

Tutankhaten — year 8 or 9 — renamed Tutankhamun later. From Amarna, Egypt. The Petrie Museum of Egyptian Archaeology, London It has been proposed that Akhenaten may have taken some of his daughters as sexual consorts, to attempt to father a male heir by them, but this is very debatable. It does seem certain that like his father, Amenhotep III, Akhenaten named at least one daughter as Great Royal Wife , but this does not necessarily indicate she was his sexual consort as the position was also an important ceremonial position. Her death was attributed to possibly from childbirth, because of a depiction of an infant with her. Because no husband is known for Meketaten, the assumption has been that Akhenaten was the father.

There are also many good pictures and Cyril Aldred was one of the foremost voices in Egyptology and wrote many books on ancient Egypt.

There are also many good pictures and drawings included. I, myself, have been obsessed with Akhenaten and his relatives since I was a child. My parents took me to the Field Museum in Chicago which has a large ancient Egyptian collection, including mummies, when I was 8 or 9 and I was transfixed.

I remember this visit clearly and remember looking at mummies and trying to wrap my mind around the fact that these were actual people who had walked the earth three thousand years in the past. The art Being a bookworm long before 8 years old, I immediately began reading books on all things ancient Egypt and once I read about the 18th dynasty and Akhenaten and his parents, wife Nefertiti , children and other relatives, I began a life long obsession of the mysteries surrounding this family which continue to puzzle Egyptologists today.

Some things are now known but no where near enough to satisfy the likes of me and, I would assume, other interested parties. I highly recommend reading any of Aldred books and especially this one if you have any interest in Akhenaten, Nefertiti, Tutankamun and their blood lines. I would give a lot to take a time machine back into this kingdom. I would gladly even accept a one way ticket. There would be sacrifices to be sure but the longer I live in the present, the better the past looks to me.
