The discovery of Tutankhamun's tomb made him the best-known monarch in Egyptian history, yet his nine-year rule pales in comparison to the revolutionary reign of his parents. Akhenaten and Nefertiti transformed Egyptian solar worship—merging religion and politics in ways never attempted before—and oversaw a new era in art and urban design. Bringing a wealth of archeological evidence to the topic, John and Colleen Darnell create a nuanced portrait of Akhenaten and Nefertiti, visionaries who were considered to be divine.
