Hi all,

In my book I argue that Nefertiti ruled Egypt after Akhenaten's death and that she was Solomon's Queen of Sheba. Josephus calls her the queen of Egypt and Ethiopia, and I argue that Sheba was an Israelite and not a country. Of key importance is to prove that there was indeed a female ruler at that time, and that she was called Smenkhkare, who was not a male person.

I wrote an article here - please let me know what you think.

There are many points, some of which about Prince Thutmose I answered on ED. Here I will deal with one point only.
I quote this from your article , and it is about the "throne" found in KV62

Quote

Although this image is from Tutankhamun’s golden throne, it has been suggested that Tutankhamun merely appropriated the throne, which would have been Akhenaten’s throne

Akhenaten's age at becoming king is not certain, but he would, by all reasonable estimates, have been in his early twenties. This "throne" would have been rather a tight fit for him as it was made for a nine year old, Tutankhaten. Same as with prince Thutmose, irrespective of all the other Bible things you have heaped on Armarna, you have ages wrong, and this rather puts a stick in the spokes. Best to start with what we know and work outwards from there, and not look at all the accretions and try to make the known facts agree with the accretions, whether Biblical or fantastical. I'm sure you will get some other answers soon though.....

Though actually I hope you are right about some of aspects of Prince Thutmose, and he was an adult, otherwise my mad theories go down the drain....

I always thought Akhenaten was Tutankhamens father.  So how would the throne be made for him if he hadn't been born yet?

The names in the cartouches on the thone were changed from Tutankhaten to Tutankhamun, probably on the abandonment of Atenism in his regnal year two. It also showed the name Ankhesenaten changed to Ankhesenamun (is this not one of the most beautiful names ever?) It forms part of the proof of abandonment of Atenism after he became king, and also that his wife was Ankhesenamun, thus precluding the throne having been made for Akhenaten when he was Amunhotep IV, and too big to sit in it.....

The skeleton found in KV55 has been DNA tested and shown to be Tutankhamun's father. Problem is that the name of that person is not known. It is certainly a son of Amunhotep III and Queen Tye, though as there is no remaining evidence (yet found) of the name of Tutankhamun's father, then it could be Akhenaten or Smenkhare. My belief is that it is Smenkhare.

The issue is really the following. The image on the left shows Nefertiti beside Akhenaten. The image on the right supposedly shows Smenkhkare and his wife Meritaten. In the article I show that the clothing of the couple on the right is identical to clothing and crowns worn by Akhenaten and Nefertiti. However, most significantly, the man-woman height ratio is identical in both pictures. So are their postures. Nefertiti was much shorter than Akhenaten - is this mere coincidence?
