Akhenaton - meaning "living spirit of Aten" known before the fifth year of his reign as Amenhotep IV was a Pharaoh (King) of the Eighteenth dynasty of Egypt who ruled for 17 years. His queen was Nefertiti. Akhenaton died perhaps in 1336 BC or 1334 BC.
One of the daughters of Akhenaten and Nefertiti, this is probably the oldest, Meritaten. She and her sisters, Nefertiti (who was also Akhenaten's half-sister) and Akhenaten are all depicted with this shaped skull.
