Tutankhamen, whose birth name was Tutankhaten, was probably the son of the heretic Pharaoh Amenophis IV (Akhneten) and his queen, Kiya. At a very early age he married his half-sister Ankhesenamun, the daughter of Amenophis IV and Queen Nefertiti.

Tutankhamen (a name which means "the living image of Amen") took the throne in 1333 BC, assuming the praenomen of Nebkhepure.

He died around 1323 BC at the age of about 18, leaving behind a real mystery on his death.
Tutankhamen was succeeded on the throne of Egypt by Ay, who reigned for four years, and by Horemheb, who was the last pharaoh of the Eighteenth Dynasty.
