This chapter discusses the history of Egypt from Year 12 of Akhenaten to the beginning of the Nineteenth Dynasty. It summarises the evidence for the last five years of Akhenaten's reign, including the questions surrounding the dating and identity of his coregents Smenkhkare and Nefertiti, and then that for the reigns of Tutankhamun, Ay and Horemheb. It concludes with a consideration of the long-term impacts of Akhenaten's reign, including on royal ideology and on funerary practices.

Keywords:   Akhenaten, Ay, Horemheb, Neferneferuaten, Nefertiti, Rameses I, Rameses II, Smenkhkare, Tutankhamun, Tutankhaten
