I was just wondering, did Tut ever have a harem? I know that Taemwadjsi held the title "Matron of the Harem of Tutankhamun", but was this just a title or was there an actual harem? From everything that I've read and heard, Ankhesenamun was his only wife but that would be pretty unusual if you look at his and grandfather.

Well, when he came to the throne, he probably didnít have a harem, for he was too young, but it is possible that later he had a harem. But harem ladiesí names arenít really well-known for they werenít as important, except if they had a son who later became pharaoh, for example we know about Iset, the mother of Thutmose III. Because Tutankhamen had no children, the name of these women was forgotten.
It is also possible that he was so in love with Ankhesenamen that he didnít really care about other women. Cool

When writing "his and grandfather", did you mean "his father and grandfather"? Akhenatenís harem would be another interesting thing to talk about, for Nefertiti overshadowed everyone else so much that we donít even know about his secondary wives except for Kiya and maybe Ipy... Maybe he was more interested in religion. Wink
