Ankhesenamun


Ankhesenamun
(fl. 1345–1327 BC)
   Formerly Ankhesenpaaten. Third daughter of Akhenaten and Nefertiti and wife of Tutankhamun. She joined her husband in the abandonment of her father’s religious practices and capital at Amarna and changed her name to remove the reference to Aten. Upon the death of her husband, Ankhesenamun wrote to the Hittite king seeking a Hittite prince as a new husband, but the choice, Zannanza, died mysteriously on the way to Egypt. Her subsequent fate is unknown, although it has been conjectured that she married the next king, Ay, as her name appears joined with his on two rings.
