  4. 4. Other facts…. <ul><li>Nebkheperure Tutankhamun (alternately spelled with Tuten- , -amen , -amon ; lack of written vowels in Egyptian allows for different transliterations) *tuwt-ʕankh-yamān was a Pharaoh of the Eighteenth dynasty (ruled 1333 BC – 1324 BC ), during the period of Egyptian history known as the New Kingdom . His original name, Tutankhaten, meant &quot;Living Image of Aten &quot;, while Tutankhamun meant &quot;Living Image of Amun &quot;. He is possibly also the Nibhurrereya of the Amarna letters . </li></ul><ul><li>In historical terms, Tutankhamun is of only moderate significance, and most of his modern popularity stems from the fact that his tomb in the Valley of the Kings was discovered almost completely intact. However, he is also significant as a figure who managed the beginning of the transition from the heretical Atenism of his predecessors Akhenaten and Smenkhkare back to the familiar Egyptian religion . As Tutankhamun began his reign at age 9, his vizier and eventual successor Ay was probably making most of the important political decisions during Tutankhamun's reign. Nonetheless, Tutankhamun is, in modern times, one of the most famous of the Pharaohs, and the only one to have a nickname in popular culture (&quot; King Tut &quot;). The 1922 discovery by Howard Carter of Tutankhamun's nearly intact tomb (subsequently designated KV62 ) received worldwide press coverage and sparked a renewed public interest in ancient Egypt , of which Tutankhamun remains the popular face. </li></ul><ul><li>Tutankhamun's parentage is uncertain. An inscription calls him a king's son, but it is not clear which king was meant. Most scholars think that he was probably a son either of Amenhotep III (though probably not by his Great Royal Wife Tiye ), or more likely a son of Amenhotep III's son Akhenaten around 1342 BC. However, Professor James Allen argues that Tutankhamun was more likely to be a son of the short-lived king Smenkhkare rather than Akhenaten. Allen argues that Akhenaten consciously chose a female co-regent named Neferneferuaten to succeed him rather than Tutankhamun which is unlikely if the latter was indeed his son. [2] Tutankhamun was married to Ankhesenpaaten (possibly his sister), and after the re-establishment of the traditional Egyptian religion the couple changed the – aten ending of their names to the – amun ending, becoming Ankhesenamun and Tutankhamun. They had two known children, both stillborn girls – their mummies were discovered in his tomb. </li></ul>
