  2. 2. is for Akhenaten Akhenaten was an ancient Egyptian pharaoh. He was shunned from his family when he was young, possibly because of his odd features. He had an elongated face and very long fingers and toes. After his father died, his mother chose him over her other son to become pharaoh at age 18. Akhenaten was an awfully unusual pharaoh, for he took away all of the Egyptians’ many gods and replaced them all with his god, the Auten- the sun god. As well as this unusual move, Akhenaten moved the capital of Thebes to Armana, starting a whole new city. Akhenaten also changed the art style, by making it truthful and as people really were. An example of this is that Akhenaten had statues built of himself and they even showed his odd features. Ahenaten married Nefertiti an had 2 sons. He impacted art as well as changed their afterlife.
