Ancient World Kept records of their journeys He created the biggest empire ever conquered and ruled by one king. Amenhotep III was a diplomat. He wrote the Amarna letters, carved

on small stones, to foreign princes. Amenhotep III gave monetary gifts to foreign rulers, always leaving them begging for more. He married a commoner named Tiy, and saw her as a near-equal. They were

both worshipped as gods. He switched his religious interest to the minor god Aten. Akhenaton Akhenaton Akhenaton

encouraged worship of the Aten. He shut down all worship of Amen-Re, and became the first pharaoh to practice monotheism. Akhenaton relocated 20000 people,

including himself, to a new capital city called Amarna. He became obsessed with destroyed all mentions of Amen, and got so caught up that the empire almost collapsed. Akhenaton died before disaster could strike.

Tutankhamen had no power, since he became pharaoh at 9 years old. During his reign, the old religion was restored. At 19, Tutankhamen died mysteriously. His tomb was discovered, untouched,

by Howard Carter in 1922. It took 10 years to empty the tomb. His death marked the beginning of a period of uncertainty. Ramses

Ramses II was born a commoner, but his family

fought their way into royalty and he became pharaoh at 25. He fought the Hittites from modern day Turkey. Ramses II knew he could not defeat the Hittites, so he negotiated a peace treaty. He created the Ramseum, a temple to tell of his greatness. He began a building program greater than any

before. He died at an astonishing 93 years old. The New Kingdom fell less than 150 years after his death.
