In this painting the male figure is shown as King Tut and the female figure is shown as his wife, Queen Ankhesenamun. Queen Ankhesenamun is seen rubbing some sort of oil on King Tut’s shoulder. The oil Queen Ankhesenamun uses on King Tut isn’t really specified. As it could have been either scented oils, which was commonly used for associating with the gods. Or it could have been a medicated oil that was used to soothe King Tut’s wounds and aches from hunting/battling. Mentioned earlier, the symbol above the king and queen is represented as the god Aten. Aten is represented as a sun disk. While Queen Ankhesenamun is tending to King Tut, the hands on the rays of Aten is beaming down upon King Tut to signify the act of…

    and his wife, they are depicted on King Tutankhamun's throne in what is known simply as Tutankhamun and Ankhesenamun. This time period of the New Kingdom is where rulers had come to have the name of a Pharaoh and Tutankhamun’s familial line had regained their power. Tutankhamun and his queen were half-siblings, and it was not uncommon at this time due to a royal bloodline remaining intact.

    After Tut died, she sent a letter to the Hittite king asking for a son to marry. But they’re Egypt’s enemy. She wouldn’t have sent the letter if she wasn’t one of them. The letter also said she didn’t want to marry a servant. Aye must’ve been that servant, as Aye and Tey made a plan to rule Egypt. After they found out about the letter, Aye made sure Horemheb killed the Hittite prince that was sent, as he didn’t have the power to do this himself. In the midst of the war that was started from this…

    My theory is that the whole series of events started out by Aye not liking Akhenaten because he was a heretic, and he assassinated him.
