As to the rumor of Akhenaten's body having been burned in Amarna...

From other evidence, it seems that the mummy that was burned was a Roman-era mummy (Amarna was inhabited by Romans for a short period of time if I remember correctly). There is no proof that it was indeed Akhenaten's mummy, and why would villagers in the late-1800's burn a mummy anyways?

About the body in KV 55, the one that many people think is Smenkhkare...

If you read Nicholas Reeve's book Akhenaten: Egypt's False Prophet it says that two people did a comprehensive medical exam on the mummy and discovered that the body was older than before thought, old enough to be Akhenaten. However, they didn;t release their records, so no one can know the true facts of the autopsy. Others believe that the body is of a young man in his 20's, too young for Akhenaten, old enough to be the mysterious Smenkhkare (Unless you're one who believes that Smenkhkare and Nefertiti were one and the same, in which case it wouldn't make sense).


Hi Akhenaten, thanks for your long and interesting post. It gave me hope again. About the KV55 mummy: I always thought it's Smenkhare, because I heard somewhere that he is a young boy - but you say they said the mummy can be old enough to be Akhenaten? (I was always interested in that mummy, but really never thought that h is that...
And, I think Smenkhare and Nefertiti were not the same - but that's not only my opinion. Very Happy

Quote:

I also believe that Tutankhamen was the son of Akhenaten and Kiya. Who else could it have been? If you do the math, there is no was that it could have been Amenhotep III: If Akhenaten ruled for 17 years after his father's death and then Smenkhkare ruled for 2 years after that, it makes 19 years. Tutankhamen was 9 or 10 when he started ruling. How could Amenhotep have fathered a child after he was dead for 7 years?????



Oh, that's correct. Just food for thought: I read in a book that Akhenaten and Smenkhare had joint ruling in the last 2 years. But the counting is still okay, then.

Well,an abandoned city would attract robbers like flies to pie.

Think about it,no guards. And if someone saw you just bribe them,or if they are nosy tell them. "The Pharaoh sent me to destroy the works of the Heretic Pharaoh!"

First they go into it,and I really don't know how,but they had their ways.And they would steal anything that is normal & valuable. And gold and silver that could be melted down. Do you really think someone is going to buy a lifsize statue of a pharaoh and not say anything?
And usually they burnt the mummie after they stripped it of it's prizes.
I guess it's the same reasoning that makes serial killers bury bodies in their backyards.

The Pharaohs had an enemy that no army could destroy:GREED

...that you cannot even understand what a foolish behaviour you are having, that noone can stand you at all, that you don't even try to understand what is the problem and if you can have the chance to correct your way of acting....Psus has been very kind trying to tell you that now you're getting us all extremely tired of your sick behaviour!....

who knows? maybe she'll understand...

What does it mean to you all this? are you trying to post more to become a Pharaoh?, but this is just something of the site...we are all here to talk about Ancient Egypt, not to post foolishness to get new titles!...then, what kind of Pharaoh would you be if you cannot even understand that???...why don't you take care of politics, who are so many there around??


DM_28, pls, do something! Evil or Very Mad

Can't the moderators do something? On other forums people get banned for doing stuff like this.
