Welcome to the
Gallery of Egyptian Archeology
The North Wing of Nile Arts
One of the most fascinating periods in the history of the world was
the Amarna Period. From this period such house hold names as Nefertiti,
Akhenaten, also spelled Ikhnaton, and Tutankhamen were born. Here
we attempt to bring you a piece of this period through paintings that
depict the many archeological finds of this time period.
Amenhotep IV aka Ikhnaton, the son on Amenhotep III and Queen Tiye,
became pharaoh a short time before his father's death. At this time, he
was already married to Nefertiti, and had one daughter, Meritaten.
Amenhotep believed that his God, Aten, was the only god, thus becoming
the only pharaoh in the first, second or third dynasty to openly
acknowledge and worship a single God. Ikhanton moved the capital
of Egypt from Memphis to Akhetaten. He changed his name to Akenaten,
lived in his own capital city with his family, worshiping the singular
God, and ignoring the priest that worshiped many Gods. The final days
of these personages is shrouded in mystery. After the death of
Akhenaten, Smenkhare becomes pharaoh for a short time. Following
Smenkhare was king Tutankhaten or King Tut, who moved the capital back
to Memphis. After the early death of Tutankhaten, early 20's, Aye
becomes pharaoh, only to be ousted by General Horemheb.
