More About This Book

Overview

The year is 1341BC. The religion of Egypt has been polytheistic since its history began. The Egyptian Empire stretches from modern day Sudan to Mesopotamia and is ruled by a co-regency of the Pharaohs Amunhotep III and his son Akhenaten.
Akhenaten has been co-regent for 8 years, initially ruling with his father from Waset, now called Luxor. Four years ago Akhenaten forsook Waset and set out to establish his own capital. We find him, his wife Nefertiti, their three daughters and his entire court in the new city Akhetaten, the Horizon of the Sun Disc.
The Temple of Amun-Ra in Waset is the centre of a gigantic industry. Its wealth exceeds that of the King but it is under threat because Pharaoh Akhenaten has proclaimed that all the old Gods, including Amun-Ra are obsolete! He proclaims the only deity is the Aten, the Disc of the Sun. Temples and statues of the old Gods will be torn down, the Priesthood will be disbanded and all its wealth will flow to the Pharaoh.
The Priests who serve the old Gods are enraged and in fear for their future. The common people are totally confused. The most feared state of existence is about to descend on Egypt, the state of Chaos!
What of the Gods themselves? Pharaoh Akhenaten has rejected the old Gods after eons of watching over the ancient land of Egypt. The very existence of the old Gods has been challenged. The state of Order, personified by Maat is under threat. The Goddess Maat, custodian of truth and order proposes a solution to the Gods. A boy child will be born to a secondary wife of the Pharaoh and placed into the world by the Gods to resolve the Chaos caused by Akhenaten. The child will become Pharaoh and his name will beTutankhamun.
This is the story of the young Pharaoh from the time of his birth. It tells of his early years, his marriage, his coronation and his death. The story follows his spirit into the Afterlife where the eternal existence of his Ka can only be assured if his name is spoken by the living, hence the title Tutankhamun Speak my Name.
The book is a blend of fact and fantasy. Facts are used where they are available and fantasy is used to weave a magic carpet around those facts, to bring life and colour to the events that may have taken place in the life of the young boy-king seen from his own perspective and told in his own words.
