Tutankhamun Timeline


1343 BCTutankhamun was born in this year - his name at this time was Tutankhaten

1343BCHe was the son of Pharaoh Akhenaten, the heretic king and his wife Kiya. His birthplace was probably Amarna, the new city created by Akenaten and settled in 1345BC when he moved the population from Thebes
 

1337 BCAfter a reign of 17 years  it is believed that Akhenaten was forced to abdicate and soon after died
 

1336 BCA person called Smenkhkare Ankhetkheperure took the throne (r1336 BC -1334 BC) There is speculation that Smenkhkare Ankhetkheperure was in fact a woman due to the feminine spelling of the name and questions whether Smenkhkare Ankhetkheperure could have been Nefertiti, Akhenaten's Chief Wife and the mother-in-law and stepmother of Tutankhamun
 

1334 BCTutankhamun was made Pharaoh of Egypt. He was nine years old. His regent was Ay who was also the Grand Vizier. Ay was also the father of Nefertiti, his stepmother and also the grandfather of Ankhesenpaaten
 

1334 BCTutankhamun married Ankhesenpaaten, his half sister, the third daughter of Akhenaten and Nefertiti
 

1331 BCTutankhamun changed his name from Tutankhaten to Tutankhamun and Queen Ankhesenpaaten changed her name to Ankhesenamun, probably due to pressure from traditionalists, reflecting the growing acceptance of the old god Amun and decline in support of the god Aten
 

1330 BCKing Tutankhamun, Queen Ankhesenpaaten and the royal court, moved back to the old capital at Thebes, the center of worship of the Ancient Egyptian god Amun and the power base of the Amun priests.
 

1330 BC -
1325 BC
The marriage of Tutankhamun and Ankhesenpaaten produced two daughters who were stillborn.
 

1330 BC -
1325 BC
General Horemheb was designated as the Boy King's "Deputy" and was recognised as heir to Tutankhamun
 

1330 BC -
1325 BC
Military campaigns in Nubia and Syria, although it is not known whether Tutankhamun played an active part in them this is quite possible as his tomb depicts scenes of Tut riding a chariot. His tomb also contained no less than 6 chariots
 

1330 BC -
1325 BC
 
Various building work was commissioned during this period including the restoration of some temple properties at Karnak and Thebes

1325 BCTutankhamun died in the year of 1325BC at the age of 18/19. He reigned for just 9 years and the cause of his death still remains a mystery
 

1324 BCHe was buried in his hastily prepared tomb in the Valley of the Kings 70 days after his death, according to the death rituals of the Ancient Egyptians
 

1124 BC 1106 BCThe first tomb robberies were documented in the reign of Ramses IX (1124 BC 1106 BC). It is possible that the tomb of Tutankhamun was first robbed at this time
 

1133 BCThe entrance to the tomb of Tutankhamun is buried with rubble when work is being carried out on the tomb of Ramses VI (1141 BC 1133 BC)
