Amarna Princesses

Post by Frater0082 » Fri Dec 18, 2015 5:10 pm

Hey guys! I've decided to write a third book and this time specifically on the Amarna Princesses(that which includes the daughter of Kiya, Ankhesenpaaten Tasherit or Meritaten Tasherit). This does not have nothing to do at all with my other story but its based on my perspective on the princesses and their lives.

I've done a lot of research on these women and I want the world to know a little bit more about them other than what I told you before. I'm also going to write about Smenkhare and my beliefs about his background and the possibility of him being buried within these secret chambers inside Tutankhamun's tomb.

What do you guys think? should i write it or not?

I was of the opinion Smenkhare and Nefertiti are one and the same. Are you saying Smenkhare is a Princess?

This hypothesis is no longet held by main stream egyptologists.

The bulk of the evidence currently avaiable indicates they were distinct individuals with Smenkhare being male.

No wonder I find the lot so darn confusing. Change of names change of sex, change of wives, mother and fathers. I give up. :lol:

Not just you Carrie.

Egyptologists have been arguing over the Amarna family for over a century.

If there is anything behind the walls of Tutankhamun's tomb it may help resolve some of the questions.

I read just last week of Nicholas reeves theory of Nefertiti ruling as a pharoah in her own right, some suggest a co leadership with Turankhamen. A theory i had not heard before

If you feel the need to write your third book, then write it. The considered project should not rest on the opinion of others. IMO.

We know so little of what actually happened. History is always changing not only due to new discoveries but due to the beliefs at the time they are found

No I'm not saying that he was a princess, I don't think he was royal at all but he did look like an older version of Tut though they could've passed as Tut's brother i'm not sure where he comes from.

There can be little doubt that there was a pharaoh at the end of the Amarna period by the name of Smenkhare

I think what Frater is saying is that he may not have had royal blood. Possible. ....,although highly improbable .

That's what i'm saying. I don't know who Smenkhare is or where he came from but from the stories my sister Mery told me she really did love him. She told me it was our father who arranged their marriage and Smenk always was good to her until something happened that tore them apart. She blamed the Priests for his disappearance. She always talked about him and I always was able to listen.

I do know that he was half Tut's age which in Y16 he would've been six years old and Smenkhare 16. Of all the mysteries of this time he is the Most mysterious person in history.
