Childhood and growing years
Akhenaton was the ruler of the ancient Egypt. He was born to King Amenhotep III and Queen Tiy. The King had a good strategy that helped the nation to strengthen its power and the security. Akhenaton worshipped the Egyptian traditional gods in this childhood. He lived in the society where there is no chance of division both in terms of the politics and the religion. Due to this the Egyptian priests gained much fame as well as wealth and the power.
Since the political influence was increasing every day, the priests started to threaten the pharaohs. King has noticed this increase in power of the priests and he insisted his son to remove the threat after he attains the power. Akhenaton got married to the Nefertiti and they gave birth to six children.
Claim to fame
The new religion was set by Akhenaton but it is very difficult to gain the recognition among the Egyptians. It is mainly opposed by the priests of Amun. In order to avoid the division that has been raised among the people of Egyptians, he tried to build a new city that is completely devoted and worshipped Aten. He even abandoned some Thebes. He relocated with his family to this new city named Amarna.
He designed this city with great care and he showed personal interest in developing the layouts of the entire city, temples, palaces and the administrative offices.teh temples that are designed were very Unique and they are place near to the river. They do not have any roof so that the sun rays directly come upon the worshippers. He composed the hymns for the sun.
Akhenaton left this world in 17th year and after his death pharaoh Smenkhkara was the person to take his chair. Since the Akhenaton was against the traditional god, the priests tried to regain their religion. The Amarna city was abandoned after his death. The new kings have tried to completely erase the heretical religion that was built by this person. The temples were removed and the stone remained unused. Though the memories of the Akhenaton were completely removed but some of the famous lyrics that are designed by this person still remain in this world.
