>> Shabaka is certainly also the son-in-law of Taharqa

Ahum, Shabaka was brother-in-law of Taharqa, not son-in-law.

Harran Tablets Vs. 70-71 [Onasch, Die Assyrischen Eroberungen Ägyptens, I, 108.]:
“As for Taharqa, King of Kush, the fear and terror of my lordship stunned him and he went to his fate. Vs. 71 Tanutamun, the son of his sister sat on his throne and ruled the country”

Prism A Col. II 22 [Onasch, Die Assyrischen Eroberungen Ägyptens, I, 122.]
"Later (after Taharqa’s death), Tanutamun, son of Shabaka sat on the throne of his kingship."

          Hi Jaap, Thanks for the lead to Khan regarding Sabacon standing for all Kushite kings. IMHO, I reject this, 1. firstly as there seems to be too much correlation between the names of Shabako/Shabaqo... more
