Queen Ankhesenamun was a queen of the Eighteenth dynasty of Egypt. Born as Ankhesenpaaten, she was the third of six known daughters of the Egyptian Pharaoh Akhenaten and his Great Royal Wife Nefertiti, and became the Great Royal Wife of her half-brother Tutankhamun. The change in her name reflects the changes in Ancient Egyptian religion during her lifetime after her father's death.

Egyptian pharaoh of the 18th dynasty (reigned ca. 1504 - 1450 BC) Thutmose III emerged as the sole ruler of Egypt and as a great conqueror after the death of Hatshesput.
