The Rage of Horemheb:
(By Anand Balaji Archaeology & Science Part I)
Hurried End of Akhenaten, Aye and Atenism. Barely four years after the death of Nebkheperure Tutankhamun in 1323 BC, the powerful ruling family was overthrown by Horemheb, a general and one-time non-royal crown prince; ending the Thutmosid line - and later, the Eighteenth Dynasty itself - that had lorded over Egypt and taken her to heady heights over a span of 250 years.
Religious upheaval, glaring nepotism and corruption among the ruling elite had very nearly destroyed the glory of the empire. But, Horemheb would soon learn that the path to become pharaoh was fraught with great peril and challenges, in the form of political machinations by a powerful contender, Aye, and much drama at the royal court. | Ancient Origins Members Sitehttps://members.ancient-origins.net/articles/rage-horemheb-hurried-end-akhenaten-aye-atenism
