He tried to unify the gods of ancient Egypt, as there were many deities in it who were worshiped in its various regions, including the great god Amun Ra in the form of the one god Aten. Although there are doubts about the extent of his success in this, and the transfer of the capital from Thebes to his new capital, Akhetatun, in Minya, in which realistic art appeared, especially in sculpture and drawing, as in the tomb of Ra’a Musa, and a new literature appeared characterized by songs of the new god Aten, or what is currently known as the Tell el-Amarna system.
Akhenaten was married to his wife, the main Queen Nefertiti, who shared his thoughts in the worship of Aten, appeared with him in religious ceremonies and accompanied him in all his scenes. His mother, Queen T, introduced her son to a second wife, Kiya. Which is most likely the mother of Tutankhamun. The Supreme Council of Egyptian Antiquities announced in April 2010 that based on DNA tests known for short as deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA), these tests show that Tutankhamun is the son of King Akhenaten in fact.
King Akhenaten was preoccupied with his philosophy and religious reforms, and turned away from foreign policy and administering the empire that extended to the upper Euphrates and Nubia in the south, so the Asian part of it separated. And when he died, his successor, Smenkh Ka-Ra, who ruled for a short period of about 3 years, then succeeded “Samenkh Ka-Ra”, his nephew Tutankhamun, who was young and recanted from the Aton doctrine and left the capital Achhatatun to return to Thebes (Luxor today), and announced the return of the Amun doctrine under The priests of Amun who were still pressing on the doctrine of the god Amun-Ra, rejecting what Akhenaten offered them regarding the idea of the new god Aton. Under these pressures and due to his young age, he changed his name from “Tutankhamun” to Tutankhamun. The priests of Thebes demolished the monuments of Akhenaten and his city Akhetaten, erased his name from them, dismantled the temple that Laton had built in Thebes, and the people abandoned his capital.
