Tutankhamun, the New Kingdom’s famous 18th Dynasty Egyptian boy king/pharaoh was the last ruler of his royal family line. His father was (probably) the pharaoh Akhenaten, who some believed to be the mummy found in the tomb KV55. His mother was (probably) his father’s sister, identified through DNA testing as an unknown mummy referred to as “The Younger Lady”

Tutankhamun was involved in the restoration of the Ancient Egyptian religion after its dissolution by Akhenaten- the heretic pharaoh, and began restoring old monuments damaged during the previous Amarna period.
