A
Amenhotep 4 succeeded Amenhotep 3(who was tut's father or grandfather). His reign was the strangest period in history because he promoted worship of Aten, the sun disk, he changed his name to Akhenaten or the 'servant of Aten' and moved the religious capital from thebes to the new city of Akhetaten, known as Amarna. He further shocked the country by destroying all the temples and statues of Amun who was a major god of Egypt.
