Does anyone know what happened to those two after Tutankhamun's death? I can't seem to find any information on them.

I read that Maya continued to serve as overseer of the treasury under Horemheb. He oversaw building projects in karnak also. He died about nine years into Hormheb's reign and his wife Meryt took over his job.
His tomb wasn't discovered until 1987. It was located in Saqqara near Horemheb's original tomb.
Nakhtmin is a mystery and his fate is not set in stone.
I don't believe his tomb has ever been found, that I know of.
Most Egyptologist presume him dead around the time Ay died
Foul play for the throne most likely involved. :shock:

Found this on the Web:



Nakhtmin

Commander in chief of Tutankhamon.

"Royal Scribe"

"Fan bearer on the King's right"

He dedicated 5 ushabtis to Tutankhamon - these were the only objects, together with Maya's funereal figure, given by subjects for inclusion in the tomb.

One of the ushabti figures carries the inscription "the servant who makes his master's name live". The act of reviving the name of the dead during the funeral rites is the prerogative of the eldest son, and when there was no male heir, the daughter. In the case of there being no children the performance of this duty would be left to a close relation or a very faithful friend. The 'divine' Ay, for reasons of state, is portrayed as performing this rite but it seems more likely that Nakhtmin, with the giving of such a personal funeral gift, and his title, thereon, would in actuality have performed this rite.

He later dedicated stela to Ay - these were desecrated by Horemheb.

He appears to have been an important man and a friend of Pharaoh.

He became a henchman of Ay when Ay took over the throne.


Whatever happened to him leter is really unknown. He just kind of disappears from history.
