About Pharaonic Ascension
I will tell you about the "Golden Horizon" basic storyline.
Young prince Amenhotep/Akhenaten and his guide/lover, Vizier Aperel.
Then before that, you kind of need to know about this particular period's background.
Basic information about Akhenaten from Wikipedia.
Akhenaten was a younger son of pharaoh Amenhotep III and his principal wife, Tiye.
This period of Egypt was wedded to its traditional political and religious certainties under the Amun priesthood.
Amenhotep means "Amun is Satisfied."
Amun meant something like "the hidden one" or "invisible."
Amun was initially depicted with red-brown skin, but after the Amarna period, he was painted with blue skin, symbolizing his association with air and primeval creation.
Amun was also depicted in a wide variety of other forms, includes,
Re-Horakhty was, in turn, identified with Amun.
His elder brother, crown prince Thutmose was recognized as Amenhotep III's heir in a natural order.
He also had four or five sisters.
Elder brother Thutmose deceased early before his Ascension, and Prince Amenhotep=future Akhenaten was next in line for the Throne.
Egyptologists do not know much about Akhenaten's life as Prince Amenhotep.
Some historians suggested the King's Son Amenhotep was born before his father Amenhotep III's 25th regnal year, c. 1363–1361 BC, at Malkata palace.
Others contend that he was born in Memphis and growing up influenced by the worship of the Sun God Ra practiced at nearby Heliopolis.
The palace of Malkata was built in the 14th century BC, and its ancient name was Per-Hay, "House of Rejoicing."
Initially, the palace was known as the Palace of the Dazzling Aten.
This means Young Price grew up with the Dazzling Aten, which could be one of the keys to why he changed his name from Amun to Aten.
The Aten was the Sun's Disc and initially an aspect of Ra, the sun god in traditional ancient Egyptian religion.
Ra's cult was so widespread and established throughout Egypt that young price could have been influenced by solar worship even if he did not grow up around Heliopolis.
Some historians have tried to determine who Prince Amenhotep's tutor was during his youth and have proposed four possibilities.
Scribes Heqareshu was an overseer of the King's Tutors during the reign of Tuthmosis IV in the Eighteenth Dynasty.
Heqareshu died sometime during the (early) dominance of Amenhotep III, the Prince's father, which means he may be the Prince's tutor but not much longer.
Scribes Meryre II was known as the superintendent of Queen Nefertiti.
He held the title of a royal scribe, steward, overseer of the two treasuries, and overseer of the royal harem of Nefertiti.
He was with Prince's wife Nefertiti, so probably he was not his tutor.
The royal tutor Amenemotep.
The vizier Aperel's name means "the servant of the god El."
Besides being Vizier, Aperel was also a commander of chariots and had the title God's Father.
He served during the reigns of the 18th Dynasty kings Amenhotep III and Akhenaten.
The only person Egyptologists know for sure served the Prince was Parennefer.
His elder brother, crown prince Thutmose served the role of High Priest of Ptah in Memphis before he died.
If young Amenhotep had inherited all his brother's roles in preparation for his accession to the Throne, he might have become a high priest, but no evidence had been found.
Serving the Ptah, an ancient Egyptian deity, a creator god, and patron of craftsmen and architects.
Ptah conceived the world and brought it into being through the creative power of speech.
The Shabaka Stone, from the Twenty-Fifth Dynasty, says Ptah "gave life to all the gods and their Kas as well, through this heart and this tongue.
The Was sceptre
The sign of life, Ankh
The Djed pillar
These three combined symbols indicate the three creative powers of the god: power (was), life (Ankh), and stability (djed).
Whose Ptah high priests were sometimes referred to as "The Greatest of the Directors of Craftsmanship."
The office of the high priest of Ptah was located in Memphis in Lower Egypt.
The temple of Ptah in Memphis was dedicated to Ptah, his consort Sekhmet and their son Nefertem.
Prince took Throne as Amenhotep IV, most likely in 1353 or 1351 BC. It was less likely at Memphis or Armant, most likely crowned in Thebes.
It is unknown how old Amenhotep IV was ascended to the Throne; probable estimates range from 10 to 23.
His father, Amenhotep III, shared power with his son, Amenhotep IV, for at least eight years.
An examination of the father, Amenhotep III's mummy by the Australian anatomist concluded that, he had died between 40 and 50 years.
Since Akhenaten and his family were intentionally erased from Egyptian history, there is not much to know and Egyptologists working hard to find new pieces of evidence to fill the vast gaps.
This "Golden Horizon" series explores a young Prince, who will become Amenhotep IV, the 10th Pharaoh in 18 dynasties, and later on, he changes his name to Akhenaten.
When his elder brother unexpectedly dies, this young Prince is naturally following line to the Throne.
And then, his preparation for the Ascension needs to be started and succeeded.
