No Pharaoh of Egypt causes quite so much debate as the 'Heretic' Akhenaten. Despised by his successors and all but erased from history, only now are some of the details being painstakingly put together of this man and the profound effect he had on an empire.

Why did he turn his back on the existing Gods and close their temples ? Take a look through this section of the site, and learn a little about Akhenaten, his life, his family and his city.
