Egypt During the Reign of Akhenaton

Ankhespaaton-Tashery


Born in year 15

Thought to be a daughter of Akhenaton and his daughter Ankhespaaton but could have been the last daughter of Nefertiti. This would have been more probable as the evidence of the two stillborn children found in Tutankhamon's tomb points to Ankhespaaton being unable to carry a child full term.

However, an inscription found in 1938 in Hermopolis, points to her being the child of Ankhespaaton. Akhenaton had a Shuyet-Ra built on the left bank of the nile for her - near Heliopolis.
