The Pharaoh Akhenaten was one of the most enigmatic people in ancient Egyptian history. Perhaps even in all of history. Often referred to as the heretic King, Akhenaten changed everything about Egypt, from the way religion was practiced to the art. Perhaps the most striking change was the art. He was often depicted with odd physical characteristics. These characteristics were not just relegated to his statuary, but to Akhenaten and his family as well. Until this day, historians are trying to figure it out. Some say these physical deformities were a result of inbreeding. This would not be surprising since this was quite common in Ancient Egypt. Akhenaten's inbreeding in his own family was well known, so perhaps, the historians are correct. We may never know, but one thing is for sure, the mystery of the Pharaoh Akhenaten and his family will endure for eternity.
In this audiobook, we will cover, ever so briefly, the life of Akhenaten, the Son of the Sun.
