Neferkheperure Waenre Amenhotep 4 Netjer Heka-Iunu
ruled 1022 BCE to 1007 BCE (ruled 1352 BCE to 1336 BCE)

Egyptian king of the 18th Dynasty.

This propably most extraordinary king of the Black Land dared to introduce a new monotheistic religion and deprive the old gods and their priests of their power.
Akhenaten built an new capital at Akhetaten (modern Amarna) where some of the most informative artefacts and written texts of Egypt have been unearthed, e.g. the Amarna tablets.
