However upon the death of his brother, he immediately inherited the throne. Throughout his early years of reign, Akhenaten hasn’t made any drastic adjustments but finished the temples at Karnack in which his father had started. However, during his 6th year of kingship he began to make some radical changes. He converted his entire nation from its traditional beliefs of polytheism to monotheism, thus making Aten the patron god. To emphasize his support of Aten, he changed his name from Amenhotep IV to Akhenaten which means ‘the spirit of the Aten’.
From gathered sources and facts ramses the second is suggested to be the greatest builder as well as ruler of all Egyptian history. His works remain unsurpassed when compared to other works of the same era. The rule of Ramses the second commenced in 1304 BC, becoming the 3rd pharaoh of the 19 dynasty.

Tutankhamen (reigned 1361-1352 BC), the twelfth King of the Eighteenth Egyptian Dynasty, became the most famous of the Pharaohs when his treasure-filled tomb was discovered in the 20th century.The parentage of Tutankhamen is unknown. When he became king, he was only a child, for although he reigned 8 full years, examination of his body showed that he was little more than 18 years old at the time of his death. Tutankhamen acceded to the throne shortly after the death of Ikhnaton. He may have owed his accession to his marriage to Ankhnesamun, the third daughter of Ikhnaton and Nefertiti. Tutankhamen had originally been named Tutankhaten, but both he and Ankhnesamun (originally Ankhnespaten) deleted from their names all reference to the sun disk Aten as soon as they abandoned Amarna, the city built by Ikhnaton for the sole worship of Aten.
Tutankhamun became King at the age of 9 and died at 18. The discovery of his tomb made him famous in history because of the treasures and artefacts that were buried with him. Tutankhamun’s tomb was small relative to his status. It is believed that his tomb was made for a noble not a pharaoh and that he may have died before the completion of a grander royal tomb. Egyptians believed that after people died, they went to an afterlife, where they would continue their lives as they lived them on Earth.
Haremhab’s decision to enter the military with a background as a scribe is in part to the old scribes’ depiction of a learned man; that if one becomes a scribe one is the leader of men and the director of all other men’s work, and that learning is above work and drives the working man like its donkey . During Tutankhamen’s reign Haremhab was appointed the General of the Army and from this point on things got a bit confusing. No one is certain when Haremhab attained the throne as pharaoh. Many accredit Ay, pharaoh after Tutankhamen as the one who appointed Haremhab to the throne, but the relationship between Ay and Haremhab we know absolutely nothing of . Despite the confusion in Haremhab’s throne situation, Haremhab as a Scribe of the King is accredited to be made before he became king

Hammurabi made Babylonia into an empire and the society was thriving - he also created the earliest written set of laws called The Code of Hammurabi.

Today over 80 pyramids remain all over Egypt, most of them found along river Nile up to the capital Cairo. The Egyptian culture mixes African, Asian and European ideas.
