Akhenaten: Who Was This Mysterious Egyptian Pharaoh?

One of the most mysterious people in Egyptian history is Akhenaten, husband of Nefertiti, and presumed, by some, to be the father of Tutankhamen.

Akhenaten - meaning "living spirit of Aten" - known before the fifth year of his reign as Amenhotep IV (sometimes given its Greek form, Amenophis IV, and meaning Amun is Satisfied), was a Pharaoh of the Eighteenth dynasty of Egypt who ruled for 17 years and died perhaps in 1336 BC or 1334 BC.

In this video expert Stephen Mehler presents a logical reasoning as to who Akhenaten was.
