Akhenaten: The Heretic Pharaoh
Perhaps the most intriguing of ancient Egypt's rulers, Akhenaten is in many ways also the most mysterious. Loved by those that followed him, and his wife Nefertiti, he was hated by the Amun priesthood, who before and during his childhood held the reigns of power in Egypt. He not only changed his name from Amenhotep to Akhenaten, but also moved the capital from Thebes to his new city of Akhetaten, as well as changing the belief system from poly to monotheism. Learn more about him in this book.
