#DIDYOUKNOWTHAT? Ankhesenamun

#DIDYOUKNOWTHAT? Ankhesenamun "Her Life Is of Amun" firstly called #Ankhesenpaaten "Her Life Is in Aten" by her father, was born in a time when Egypt was in the midst of an unprecedented religious revolution (c. 1348 BC). Her father had abandoned the old deities of Egypt in favor of the Aten, hither to a minor aspect of the sun-god, characterised as the sun's disc. After her father's death she became the wife of Tutankhamun. Following their marriage, the couple honored the deities of the restored religion by changing their names to #Tutankhamun and #Ankhesenamun. The couple appear to have had two stillborn daughters. Some time in the ninth year of his reign, at about the age of eighteen, Tutankhamun died suddenly, leaving Ankhesenamun alone without an heir at about age twenty-one. A ring discovered is thought to show that Ankhesenamun married Ay shortly before she disappeared from history. #BeforeThat The Hittite ruler receives a letter from the Egyptian queen, while being in siege on Karkemish. #TheLetterReads: ✉ "My husband has died and I have no son. They say about you that you have many sons. You might give me one of your sons to become my husband. I would not wish to take one of my subjects as a husband... I am afraid." ✉ He eventually did send one of his sons, #Zannanza, but the prince died, perhaps murdered, en route. The phrase regarding marriage to 'one of my subjects' (translated by some as 'servants') is possibly a reference to the #GrandVizier Ay or a secondary member of the Egyptian royal family line. Since #Nefertiti was depicted as powerful as her husband in official monuments smiting Egypt's enemies, she (Ankhe) might be the Dakhamunzu in the Amarna correspondence as Nicholas Reeves believes Ankhesenamun may have been pressured by Ay to marry him and legitimise his claim to the throne of #Egypt (which she eventually did) This also might explain why she describes herself as 'afraid', especially considering the popular (but not widely accepted) theory that Ay had a hand in her husband's death, also there's the theory that says he (Tut) had badly broken his leg shortly before his death, and that the leg had become infected. #SibyllaDeenFans ✔️ ✔️

This character would be a woma

This character would be a woman from ancient Egypt who has married into the imperial family of China after a long journey across the Indian Ocean. Her story was inspired by that of Queen Ankhesenamun, who was Pharaoh Tutankhamun's chief wife. After Tut died and his vizier Ay took over, Ankhesenamun's known to have requested a husband from the Hittites of Anatolia, only for the man they sent to die en route. It's likely that Ay and his goons had something to do with that. It makes me think Ankhesenamun really didn't want to be Ay's wife, so what if she fled the country afterwards? For all we know, she could have very well traveled all the way to China and married into the ruling Shang dynasty. Right now, though, her fate remains a mystery of ancient history... By the way, the characters on the upper right spell "Egyptian" in Chinese. #ankhesenamun #history #ancientegypt #egyptian #kemet #ancientchina #china #chinese #african #blackwoman #darkskin #ebony #fantasy #art #digitalart #multicultural #womanofcolor
