"a) You don't know it's Meriten who was called "Dahamunza""

Tory:
"Well she can't be Nefertiti since she predeceased Akhenaten. She can't be Ankhesenamun because Aye succeeded Tutankhamun immediately and no Hittite visiting Egypt with orders to find out what is going on would be stupid enough to believe just the queen and her people telling him there are no Weapons of Mass Destruction, i.e. there is no king in the country send us a son of Suppiluliuma and he will be king."

It certainly looks like the Hittites had no idea there was already a king. The Hittite archives also hold a letter written by Suppiluliuma I to the pharaoh of Egypt (possibly Ay, the successor of Tutankhamun) after the "disappearance" of the prince.


".... I was ready to send my son to be king. But you were already on the throne and I did not know. Concerning what you have written to me: "Your son has died, but I have not caused him any ill."

When the queen of Egypt wrote me again, you did not ... But if you had ascended to the throne in the meanwhile, you should have sent my son back to his home ... your servant Hani holds us responsible ... What have you done with my son? Concerning the fact that no blood has been spilled between us before: the blood spilled since between us is not right...."
