In the hypothetical scenario described earlier, let's make "Ankhkheperure" a new person of royal blood. How about a prince and younger brother of AM3.

In this scenario, Smenkh is neither the son of AM3 nor Akhenaten, but is next in the line of succession after the death of Akh.

Let's make Ankhkheperure, 20 years years younger/after AM3.

And Smenkh, 20 years younger to Akh, thus marrying his daughter.

This would make Ankhkheperure the uncle of Akhenaten, but same age. And Smenkh the cousin of Akh, and his son-in-law.

And Tut is:
A. possibly the son of the brother sister combo of Smenkh and NeferNeferuAten. Or
B. Smenkh and his wife MeryTaten.

          Got cut off by the Internet. So, as I was saying, Akhenaten was still living then in his final year, which was 17, as there are several wine jar labels marked "Year 17". The same can be said for... more
