Egypt During the Reign of Akhenaton

Second Prophet of Amon

High Priest of Re-Atum

Brother of Queen Tiye

Son, therefore, of Tuyu and Yuyu

Died in year 33 or 34 of Amenhophis III reign - was succeeded in year 34 by Simut.

If he was the brother of Queen Tiye then this leads on to believe that she could not have been connected with her son's fanatical love of Aton and his overthrow of Amun. At the time of his death the Aton cult was already in operation.

He officiated at the burials of Tuyu and Yuyu
