Akhenaton, Pharaoh, husband to Nefertiti, and father to Tutankhamun. He was the rebel of the ancient world, not only changing their religion from polytheism to monotheism with the worship of Aten, he also had the nerve to change the capital city of Egypt to Amarna which was considered by most as ‘Urban Village’ not a grand city. Reading this book you will have an enticing look at the Pharaoh the Ancient Egyptians tried to erase from history. For those who first love is Ancient Egypt- like me, this books is a must.
