I for one am positive that Akhenaten is the father of Tutankhamun. And Kiya was Tut's mother. Nefertiti was jealous because she bore 6 daughters and could not conceive a son to inherit the throne, so after Kiya had Tut Nefertiti murdered her. The reason Nefertiti fell out of the picture later on during Akhenaten's reign was because Akhenaten was murdered by Ay, the same man that murdered Tut, so Nefertiti took the throne shortly to cover for her dead husband. Tut was obviously too young, so Nefertiti had to rule as Pharoah for a few years but she disguised herself as a man. She even used a man's name. Also, Queen Tiye's name is pronounced "Tie". Anymore questions?
Welcome Nefertiti, Believe me you are not alone in your beliefs. i for one have some questions. See i don't see any reason not to accept that like Great Royal Wives before her, Nefertiti gave her husband at least one royal son and possibly two.
Now for my questions.
1 How could Nefertiti kill Kiya when the last attested(proven fact) for Nefertiti is year 14 of Akhenaten, while Kiya is attested as living until year 15/16 of Akhenaten? See Akhenaten, King of Egypt page 227, by Cyril Aldred. On this basis alone i might say Kiya murdered Nefertiti who had the titles and power. However i like to think murder wasn't as rampart in Royal Egyptian palaces as many others do.
2 What solid proof do you have that Kiya was Tut's mom. How did he keep the Book of the Dead commands to honor her his mother? Now if i am right we can say he honored his dead mother Nefertiti by not destroying her images on the many Aten temples. We know he replaced Kiya's images with those of his wife on Kiya's temples. See Cyril Aldred's Akhenaten, King of Egypt page 275. He then robbed Kiya, his so called mom's burial goods for a father or brother who died so he could inherit a throne. See page 209.
3 How do you explain the shawabti, (statuette of the dead that is given at time of burial to do the labor that was needed in the Afterlife) found at Amarna, of Nefertiti that gives the inscription. "The Heiress, high and mighty in the palace, one trusted [of the King of Upper and Lower Egypt (Neferkheperure Wa'enre)/ the Son of Re (Akhenaten),/Great in] his Lifetime, the Chief Wife of the King (Neferneferuaten-Neferitit), Living for Ever and Ever"'?
4)If she had ruled as you believe why does she have an shawabti that grants her titles only as Chief Wife of Pharaoh? My answer to this question is on page 230 of Akhenaten, King of Egypt.
Let's see here Nefertiti, unable to save her husband from his evil murdering servant, takes on a male identification rules a couple of years, as regent for a nine year old boy. Nefertiti then dies, the evil servant becomes advisor to the kid, lets him live another 6-7 years, even as the kid attempts to have children with his wife. Then that old evil servant kills him at the time of a major defeat of Egyptian armies against Hattiti. Right! You go right ahead and believe what you want.
Nefertiti I know i have been there done that and now i'm making up for the past beliefs, i had based upon my feelings plus one or two books. Egyptianology isn't based upon feelings to be honest. Like all sciences it should be based on facts. Unfortunately to many "facts" regarding the Amarna Period have ended up in the garbage bag since i first learned of it. Because to many of those facts were originally based upon feelings from the 19th and 20th century AD not the 14th century BCE. If you can really answer my questions with other than i know, you know, or we know, please i await the answers. I hope you have a nice day.
