Description

Once Akhenaton came to power in fourteenth-century Egypt, life changed dramatically. He completely reformed the countryÂs religion, and he replaced the traditional gods with a single god: Aton the sun god. His religious fervor went so far that he changed his own name to Akhenaton, meaning Âbeneficial to the Aton, from Amenhotep IV. His people were dissatisfied, and soon after his death, and with the rule of Tutankhamen, the country returned to its traditional deities. Although Tutankhamen is famously known for his lavish tombs, his short rule is also marked by the restoration of art and any temples damaged during AkhenatonÂs rule.show more
