Plus, he had the worst management of foreign affairs! He just chilled out in the desert as his allies got destroyed. Not too smart to me...



I am sorry Tadukhipa, the concept that Akhenaten had a very poor foreign policy is being thrown out now days.
A thorough study of the Armarna letters has brought about this change in scholarships understanding of Akhenaten's foreign policy. He was actually very active in foriegn affairs, only he chosed different from his father, and grandfather espeically in light of his treatment of Mitanni.

I'm confused...didn't they educate the royal children on practically everything they need to know about being a royal? So wouldn't both brothers have somewhat equal abilities if they went through the same training?

Hi Ankhesenap-aten, While it is rather easy to see where you might be confused. There isn't any real need to be. Your right the King's sons would all recieve more or less the same education. It is in thinking that the brothers might have equal abilities is where you allow confusion to enter.

Take for example Queen Elizabeth II's younger sons, Andrew and Edward. Andrew is a natural warrior prince and still serves in the British military. While Andrew gave up his mandatory military education in preference for the creatiave arts of the stage and TV. Edward may or may not have had equal abilities in milarty life, like his older brother did. We won't ever really know. Because he found greater rewards in the creative arts.

I hope this helps to clear your confusion over the possible differences between say Thutmosis, and Akhenaten the sons of Amenhotep III and Tiye. Their education wouldn't have matter, what really matter was what did each son find most important to himself.

What if Akhenaten hadn't died so soon,if he had instead lived to be an old man?

How would Egypt have fared?

Would the common people have become more accepting of his religion or would they have beome more upset about not being allowed to worship their old gods?

By the way to the guest where did you read that Akhenaten was not so bad when it came to foreign policy after all?

What if Cleopatra had won the battle of Actium. That thought always amazes me, what would have been different? Could we even be speaking a completely new language? We would never have lost the hieroglyphic script, the temples could still possibly be open and the cult of isis still going. WOW.
