  • Akhenaten
rdfs:comment
  • An Egyptian king who invented the religion what would become Judaism.
  • Akhenaten tried to bring about a departure from traditional religion, yet in the end it would not be accepted. After his death, traditional religious practice was gradually restored, and when some dozen years later rulers without clear rights of succession from the Eighteenth Dynasty founded a new dynasty, they discredited Akhenaten and his immediate successors, referring to Akhenaten himself as 'the enemy' in archival records.
  • Akhenaten is the villain of the comic miniseries Marvel: The End by Jim Starlin. He was a Pharaoh who was chosen by the Celestial Order to be empowered with powers surpassing those of many cosmic entities - he was meant to use this power to recruit others for the Celestial Order (in a similiar manner to a Herald), instead he decided to use his newfound godhood to destroy all the gods and heroes of Earth in order to rule it as a supreme being, in such that even the asbracts such as Eternity and Infinity could not do anything against him.
  • Akhenaten (original pronunciation ʔxnʔtn, vowels unknown; modern pronunciation axɛnatɛn), known as Amenhotep IV at the start of his reign, was a Pharaoh of the Eighteenth Dynasty, especially notable for single-handedly restructuring the Egyptian religion to monotheisticly worship the Aten. He was born to Amenhotep III and his Chief Queen Tiye and was his father's younger son. Akhenaten was not originally designated as the successor to the throne until the untimely death of his older brother, Tuthmose. Amenhotep IV succeeded his father after Amenhotep III's death at the end of his 38-year reign, possibly after a coregency lasting between either 1 to 2 or 12 years. Suggested dates for Akhenaten's reign (subject to the debates surrounding Egyptian chronology) are from 1353 BC-1336 BC or 1351

abstract
  • Akhenaten is the villain of the comic miniseries Marvel: The End by Jim Starlin. He was a Pharaoh who was chosen by the Celestial Order to be empowered with powers surpassing those of many cosmic entities - he was meant to use this power to recruit others for the Celestial Order (in a similiar manner to a Herald), instead he decided to use his newfound godhood to destroy all the gods and heroes of Earth in order to rule it as a supreme being, in such that even the asbracts such as Eternity and Infinity could not do anything against him. Ironically it was Thanos who would come to Earth's aid and through the use of the Heart of The Universe easily defeated Akhenaten.
  • Akhenaten (original pronunciation ʔxnʔtn, vowels unknown; modern pronunciation axɛnatɛn), known as Amenhotep IV at the start of his reign, was a Pharaoh of the Eighteenth Dynasty, especially notable for single-handedly restructuring the Egyptian religion to monotheisticly worship the Aten. He was born to Amenhotep III and his Chief Queen Tiye and was his father's younger son. Akhenaten was not originally designated as the successor to the throne until the untimely death of his older brother, Tuthmose. Amenhotep IV succeeded his father after Amenhotep III's death at the end of his 38-year reign, possibly after a coregency lasting between either 1 to 2 or 12 years. Suggested dates for Akhenaten's reign (subject to the debates surrounding Egyptian chronology) are from 1353 BC-1336 BC or 1351 BC–1334 BC. Akhenaten's chief wife was Nefertiti, who has been made famous by her exquisitely painted bust in the Altes Museum of Berlin.
  • Akhenaten tried to bring about a departure from traditional religion, yet in the end it would not be accepted. After his death, traditional religious practice was gradually restored, and when some dozen years later rulers without clear rights of succession from the Eighteenth Dynasty founded a new dynasty, they discredited Akhenaten and his immediate successors, referring to Akhenaten himself as 'the enemy' in archival records. He was all but lost from history until the discovery, in the 19th century, of Amarna, the site of Akhetaten, the city he built for the Aten. Early excavations at Amarna by Flinders Petrie sparked interest in the enigmatic pharaoh, which increased with the discovery in the Valley of the Kings, at Luxor, of the tomb of King Tutankhamun, who has been proved to be Akhenaten's son according to DNA testing in 2010 by Dr Zahi Hawaas, Cairo. Akhenaten remains an interesting figure, as does his Queen, Nefertiti. Their modern interest comes partly from his connection with Tutankhamun, partly from the unique style and high quality of the pictorial arts he patronized, and partly from ongoing interest in the religion he attempted to establish.
