    _____________________________________________________
     
    About six (6) years before the death of Akhenaten of which occurred amidst the rebellion, there were some drastic circumstances that ultimately led to the end of the Aten Sun Worship Religion and the Aten Movement in Egypt. It was the year that Nefertiti abruptly disappeared from the records in Egypt and also, Queen Tiye died as well. Soon their contributions to this movement came into question but much of what has been written about them in this regards has been suppressed. So there happens to be both a mystery as to their contributions and certain others to this Aten Movement and a mystery as to why modern day historians have chosen to suppress this pertinent information. What role did Akhenaten’s father, Amenhotep III, have in this religious movement and why has his participation in it been kept so secretive and put completely upon the shoulders of his son? How in the world could such a renown pharaoh such as Amenhotep III be so powerful and so well esteemed way beyond his own borders die and not have his own mother’s whereabouts, Mitemwiya [Mutemwiya], be recorded even at the time of his funeral!? As methodical as the Egyptians were at that time in script, how could there be any doubt as to her origins and death especially since she became the head queen over Egypt!? If she were dead by the time of Amenhotep III’s death, surely it would have been well recorded but historians today choose to omit this obvious record!? What role did she play in this Aten Religion? Even though it has been well documented that the father of Amenhotep III, pharaoh Thutmosis IV, and their forefathers had made constant written request to the Mitannian kings to be sent Mitannian women to bond with from Mitanni, historians try to imply they don’t know where Mitemwiya came from!? Did Tiye have a voice in all of the many Asiatic women that Amenhotep III brought into his court? These questions need to be answered in order to fully understand what happened in Egypt during the time of the 18th Dynasty.

    In addition to Amenhotep III’s connection to his foreign mother Mitemwiya of whom was from Mitanni, his constant request to receive hundreds of Asiatic women of which he brought into his court and bonded with was a perpetuation of the doubt that was insinuated years earlier byway of the Thebans as to the intentions of this court. It was written that it was for this very reason Tiye was selected to be the young wife of Amenhotep III in the first place but later, it was realized that no matter how ethnic Tiye had been, her foreign origins also proved to work against the Theban presence as well. So what possible reason could historians have in stating that Akhenaten had such an unnatural close relationship with his mother? What could cause a conflict to occur between father and son? The answer to these questions rest in the very origins and definition of the Aten Religion itself and in the actions of certain other pivotal people during the rise of Atenism of which historians have conveniently omitted in order to shift the movement in the direction of blame towards Akhenaten’s maternal links instead of his paternal links. In addition to the hate movement against the Theban religion, Akhenaten was said by some to have launched a hate movement against the memory of his dead father the pharaoh Amenhotep III. Certainly Akhenaten abandoned Thebes where Amenhotep III had constructed elaborate buildings and he began a movement to strike out the name of Amenhotep III in his connection with the Theban god Amun but Akhenaten also had to do the same for his earlier name and constructions made in Thebes and in his honor as well. But could the suppressed position of Akhenaten’s mother Tiye at the set up of the Aten religion be the very reason that led to a conflict between father and son? Was Tiye suppressed down under the demands of the evasive presence of Mitemwiya and the many other Asiatic women brought into the court of Mitemwiya’s son and pharaoh with no regards to the desires of the head Royal Queen Tiye? Could this issue have led to an unnatural relationship between mother and son as well? What credible circumstance leads to such a well documented myth of Oedipus?

    Has it not been recorded that incest did occur in certain dynasties that involved some pharaohs of whom bonded with their daughters? Herodotus mentioned one such an occasion in the Old Kingdom period of which a certain king had incest with his own daughter and of which led to her terrible ending. But was there ever such an unthinkable occasion mentioned of incest to have occurred between a woman and her own son!? Even if such an unnatural relationship never occurred between Tiye and Akhenaten this very idea has presented other situations in which historians have chosen to manipulate and to bring much confusion. After the Aten Religion and the Aten Movement against the Theban system in Egypt was put down, hundreds of years later, historians today have chosen to bend history and distort it and have caused many other ancient instigators in this ancient movement of White Supremacy to become hidden while only shining the light upon the actions of Queen Tiye, her son and grandson. However because of her contributions to this Aten Sun Worship religion, it would seem appropriate to study the impact that Queen Tiye had during this time period in order to bring out more hidden truths but also, it would be crucial to understand the origins of this Aten Religion and the kind of people that came before her and exploited her and other kinds of Black people as well to set this religion up in Black lands [Kemet land].

    Historians today have taken the opportunity to completely distort this part of Egyptian History and for this reason many Black African people today have ignored other recorded facts that reveal not all ancient Black Nubian and Theban people not only reject the 18th Dynasty but also reject the presence and rule of Queen Tiye, her son and grandson too and therefore other facts needs to be brought out. Many so-called Black African Christians live within a paradox and while they claim to believe in the Bible, at the same time they embrace this negative part of Egyptian History as being the kind of positive Black African History that we should embrace and support and totally contradict themselves in regards to the very Bible they claim to follow. But I must interject here and confess that I too have been deceived and therefore know that I must always leave room for criticism and review. The Bible completely details that the Hebrew Israelites went through about 400 years of ‘hard bondage’ and this would absolutely include the total rule of the 18th Dynasty. The Creator God spoke with AbraHam and told him that his seed would endure no less than 400 years of Egyptian, Assyrian, and Amorite rule and then be judged and this reveals that the Creator God hated these forms of government yet, many so-called Black African Christians completely ignore this reality. Does it really matter if Nefertiti was indeed Black or White, if her rule as the Aten High Priestess has been rejected by the living God!? Does it really matter if the rule of Queen Hatshepsut has been sensationalized in a positive light if she sent a ship to the land of Punt to capture slaves? Does it really matter if the rule of Amenhotep II, Amenhotep III, Akhenaten or etc. was considered to be praiseworthy if the Bible reveals otherwise? To the ancient Thebans who rebelled against the Aten Sun Worship, did it really matter who was really to blame for the detriment of their humanity once their temples had been closed and their religion and way of life had been successively terminated, whether it be Amenhotep III, Akhenaten or Queen Tiye or etc.? Today and due to other repetitive negative actions that stem from this past, Black African people should concern themselves with how a foreign presence, both Black and White foreigners, has repetitively been able to infiltrate Black Kemeti lands and set up a White Supremacist government. Inevitably, no matter how good the intentions of Queen Tiye may have been, she was used by the White Asiatic people she bonded with in order to hurt Black African humanity and therefore her significant presence and that of her people does need to be better understood.

    Again, About six (6) years before the death of Akhenaten and right around the sudden death of Meketaten, the second born daughter of Nefertiti and the pharaoh Akhenaten, Queen Tiye died as well. A dark cloud loomed over the death of this young child of whom was no more than twelve (12) years old at the time and that had previously been married to her father the pharaoh only months earlier. Present at Meketaten’s funeral depiction was an infant child, a daughter, and the revelation of the newborn baby reveals that Meketaten no doubt died in childbirth. Astonishingly just after Meketaten’s ill fate, the other sudden occurrences within this Egyptian court which would include the death of Tiye all seem to happened as a result of major revelations that became evident upon the sudden death of Meketaten. It had only been a year earlier that prior to the birth of Meketaten’s daughter that her own mother Nefertiti herself had given birth to her sixth (6th) daughter from Akhenaten. So the pharaoh Akhenaten had a daughter born to him from both mother and daughter back to back within about a two year span and then around that time a daughter was born to him from Kiya, another woman of the court, and it was only a few years earlier that the young King Tut was also born and he was a product of the pharaoh and his sister (a daughter of Tiye). But upon the birth of Meketaten’s daughter and the death of the young mother, a shocking revelation eventually becomes obvious and revolves around the entire deep seeded purpose and definition of the Aten Religion and connects to the actions of Nefertiti who suddenly disappeared from her throne and the city of the Aten (the city of Sun Worship).

    Again, prior to the birth of Meketaten’s daugther, the pharaoh Akhenaten had already secured an heir to his throne, the boy-king Tut, and so due to the marriage, pregnancy and death of Meketaten and many other circumstances that surrounds this court, the real purpose for the Aten Religious Movement becomes incredibly obvious. Today’s historians have misled many to believe that Akhenaten started a monotheistic religion for the purpose of counteracting the polytheistic religious elements that had become apart of the Theban religion and in so doing, the real reason for this Sun Worship and its origin has remained hidden. However one major revelation upon the sudden death of Meketaten reveals that there was a serious competition going on amongst the powerful women in that court which revolves around the real purpose for this Aten Religious Movement. Would Queen Tiye have been apart of this competitive quest that ultimately led to the birth of her grandson the boy-king Tut? No matter, because Akhenaten already had his male heir to his throne by the time of the sixth (6th) daughter born to Nefertiti and himself therefore, his kingdom was secured, however it was not so with Nefertiti of whom was elevated to be a High Priestess in this Aten Religion! Therefore Nefertiti’s presence and desperate actions in her efforts to secure a male child that she could dominate holds the key to understanding why the child Meketaten was delivered up to the fertility cult and Nefertiti’s actions leads to a full understanding of the true origins and definition of the Aten Religion as well. This Aten Sun Worship Religion proves to have many facets one of which includes dual themes but in its essence, it expressly defines a supreme matrilineal rule and correlates directly with the earliest concept of the She-Phoenix [Sphinx] for which the very city was named Akhetaten. The name ‘Akhet-Aten’ or ‘the Horizon of the Aten’ expresses the feminine form of ‘Horus as coming from the Sphinx’. The Aten Religion therefore defines the presence of a supreme mother of whom rules through her son and it was a religion that goes way back to the time of the Earth Mother Cybele and even long before that time.

    It becomes apparent that Nefertiti was placed in the Egyptian system in order to assume authority over this religion and after her elevation over the religion as High Priestess, her further efforts reveal her attempt to eclipse the high position that Tiye inherited due to the elevation of her son Akhenaten as pharaoh. Tiye had no authority over her husband Amenhotep III and his mother Mitemwiya in regards to the timing and presence of Nefertiti being brought into that court and further substantiates why Nefertiti was indeed brought into the court and why there arose a fierce competition with in the court. But when this religious movement failed, later historians manipulated script so as to place the blame fully upon Tiye and her generations. But nevertheless as High Priestess over Egypt and the land of Kemet, Nefertiti’s purpose ran aground as she gave birth to only six daughters and had no son to continue to rule through and therefore, her daughters were then offered up for her cause. But when Meketaten suddenly died and only gave birth to yet another daughter, not only did Nefertiti disappear from the city of Aten, but Tiye soon died around that same time leaving the pharaoh Akhenaten to become the head of a dual-idol religion that was really designed to be headed up by a supreme woman of which his later and strange actions further confirms. Therefore it was his presence and actions that brings Tiye’s role in this Aten Religion back up to the forefront. The fact that modern historians constantly script Queen Tiye as a dominant powerful force over her son Akhenaten reveals that, in the least, she was apart of a power struggle and a competition going on amongst Nefertiti and other pivotal woman in that court but also it reveals that there may have been a conflict that arose between father and son due to the earlier actions of the pharaoh Amenhotep III and correlates to why historians have subtly scripted Tiye and Akhenaten as being involved in an oedipal relationship.

    Although modern day historians have kept this fact hidden, Amenhotep III was the first pharaoh to assume an Aten name! In fact the very elaborate palace that he had built up in Thebes today known as ‘Malkata’ was known as ‘House of Rejoicing’ and at that time it was built in honor of his Aten name ‘Aten-tjehen’ which means ‘the Dazzling Sun Disk’. Amenhotep III added to his previous throne name of ‘Nebmaatre’ and became known as ‘Nebmaatreatenjtehen’. Akhenatan then only furthered his father’s program and likewise he constructed a great temple in Thebes and began his Aten Movement in Thebes. Therefore it becomes further reiterated that Amenhotep III’s constant request from Asiatic civilizations to receive hundreds of Asiatic women into his House of Rejoicing to bond with could have been an issue that could have certainly lined Akhenaten up against his father. Unlike Nefertiti’s position, Tiye was not afforded the privilege of being elevated as High Priestess over the Aten Religion and this would be the significant key to understanding the problems that came about within this Aten Movement and why Akhenaten may have responded in the fashion in which he did. Did he attempt to redefine the religion by his elevation of Nefertiti as High Priestess in an act to show his rejection of his father’s actions against his mother, or was Nefertiti’s elevation pre-determined? Why did Amenhotep III script himself in regards to this Aten Religion as being ‘the living manifestation of the sun’ and ‘the center of the universe’? Why did he not elevate Tiye as being the head or central figure of this religion for she was certainly regarded as such after his death for a short time? So whether or not Akhenaten acted to strike out the name of his father as protocol to erase ‘the Amun Religion’ or as an intent to show rage against his father would be completely based upon this new found revelation of the true origins of the Aten Religion and how his mother Tiye and his paternal grandmother Mitemwiya fit into this religious movement. In other words, upon the death of Amenhotep III, the Aten Religion suddenly became dependent upon the reaction of the pharaoh’s son Akhenaten and his mother Tiye.

    Amenhotep III’s actions prove that his interpretation of himself in this Aten Religion was based upon his mother a Mitanni woman and the many Asiatic-typed women that he brought into his Aten palace. Was the Royal Queen Tiye ignored in the initial set up of this Aten Movement and suppressed under Mitemwiya? What role did Mitemwiya play in the selection of Tiye to be married to her son during a time when the Thebans questioned the purpose of the court? Akhenaten was not originally selected to be the heir to the throne as becomes evident by certain records. Amenhotep III selected Tiye’s son Akhenaten to become his heir when he became ill and when he became aware that he could not maintain his rule and further the Aten Movement. No depictions of Tiye’s son Akhenaten was made in his earlier life as he was not intended to become the heir and some also suggest that he was kept out of the public view due to his odd appearance that became evident when he became pharaoh. Based upon several depictions, Akhenaten was said by some to have been a giant and affected by the Marfan’s Syndrome and even though some say the recent findings on the skeleton found in a tomb proves to be that of Akhenaten, this finding still remains to be disputed by other scientist. Therefore the ‘scale depictions’ of Akenaten in relation to other figures present him as a giant and this issue would be extremely crucial in understanding the mysteries that surround his relationship with his mother and in how they two were exploited in regards to this Aten Religion. The fact that Tiye was carefully selected as a commoner to become a pivotal part of this Egyptian court was no happenstance therefore by understanding the origins of this Aten Religion in connection with the exploitation of Black women, then the system of White Supremacy and Satanism will be better understood.

    The suggestion in script that Queen Tiye was a dominant figure and had an incestuous relationship with her son Akhenaten has been left in the form of a rumor or as ‘a theory’ but because this issue connects to the Aten Movement of which goes back to the dawn of human history and before, the implications of this kind of relationship having occurred have far more deeper roots than if it had actually occurred during the 18th Dynasty and for this reason, better clarifications need to be made. Some scholars that suggest that Queen Tiye might have had a sexual relationship with her son Akhenaten believe that the very Greek Theban myth of Oedipus was a theory that actually applied to Queen Tiye and Akhenaten of the more ancient Egyptian Thebes. However without giving credence to this Oedipus myth as being truth or ruling it out as being impossible, it gives the adversary the opportunity to always undercut the presence of Black African women at will and for this reason it should become paramount that Tiye’s significant presence within the set up of this Aten Religious Movement be better clarified. The fact that it has been suggested that Akhenaten was said by some to be (1) a giant, (2) launched a hate movement against his father, and (3) involved in an oedipal relationship with his mother Tiye may be a complete rumored fabrication against them but because all three of these elements are all connected and expressly relate to manifestations of a dark evil practice that occurred thousands of years ago even before Tiye and Akhenaten were ever born shows why Tiye was specifically selected to become apart of this Aten Movement and why later historians have suggested such a thing in regards to Tiye.

    Egypt Revisited (Journal of African Civilizations,) Ivan Van Sertima (Editor),[This following quote in the 'Journal of African Civilizations' is from Dr. Asa G. Hilliard]:

    Ankh-en-aten and Nefertiti changed the royal residence from Waset to the city of Ankhenaten to the north. Ankh-en-aten took, as we shall see, a foreign woman as his Great Wife. He and Tuth-mes IV were the only kings in the 18th Dynasty to do so. These moves by Ankh-en-aten weakened the power of the Waset Priesthood temporarily. So the new religion that this royal pair, Ankh-en-aten and Nefertiti, initiated was alien and foreign to Kemet. Was Nefertiti herself also alien and foreign? ... Alexandre Moret said that Nefertiti was a daughter of a foreign king.

    *Scruples regarding purity of Solar blood, complicated calculations of dynastic rights, according to decree of heirship on the mother’s side, all the centuries old jurisprudence of the royal family, yielded to political necessities when the Pharaohs decided to take Mitannian princesses as their Great Royal Wives. Thothmes IV married the daughter of Artama, King of Mitanni, and she was treated as the true Queen of Egypt, where she bore the name Mutemuia. Amenhotep III, at the height of the glory of the Egyptian Empire, took into his harem first the sister and then the daughter of Dushratta, King of Mitanni, but his Great Royal Wife was Tii, who was not “born” at the court, a foreign lady, whose father, Iuya, was probably Syrian. Their son, Amenhotep IV, took as his Great Royal Wife Nefertiti, as the Egyptians called Tadukhipa, Dushratta’s daughter: she having been sent to Egypt to marry Amenhotep Iii a few days before his death, married his son instead.” (Moret, 1972. p. 316, italics mine)

    Asa G. Hilliard III
    (August 22, 1933 — August 13, 2007) was an African American professor of educational psychology who worked on indigenous ancient African history (ancient Egyptian), culture, education and society. He was the Fuller E. Callaway Professor of Urban Education at Georgia State University, with joint appointments in the Department of Educational Policy Studies and the Department of Educational Psychology and Special Education.

    Hilliard was married to Patsy Jo Hilliard, former mayor of East Point, Georgia, with whom he had four children and seven grandchildren.

    However, it would seem that Amenhotep collected a large harem of ladies over the years, including several from diplomatic marriages, including Gilukhepa, a princess of Naharin, as well as two of his daughters (Isis and in year 30 of his reign, Sitamun or Satamun, who bore the title "great royal wife" simultaneously with her mother). We can document at least six of his children consisting of two sons and four daughters (other daughters including Henuttaneb and Nebetiah).

    Tiye vanished from the scene around the time of the death of Akhenaten's second daughter, Meketaten,…
    http://www.heptune.com/Tiye.html

    The date of Mutemwiya's death is unknown, but she is believed to have survived long into her son's reign. The evidence for that is her presence among the sculptures of the Colossi of Memnon, which was built well into his reign, as well as a mention of her estate on a wine-jar label found in Amenhotep III's
    Malkata palace in Thebes[4]
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mutemwiya

    Velikovsky argued that Moses was neither Akhenaten, nor one of his followers. Instead, Velikovsky identifies Akhenaten as the behind Oedipus and moved the setting from the Greek Thebes to the Egyptian Thebes. His theory also includes that Akhenaten had an incestuous relationship with his mother, Tiye. Velikovsky also posited that Akhenaten had elephantiasis, producing enlarged legs - Oedipus being Greek for “swollen feet.” As part of his argument, Velikovsky uses the fact that Akhenaten viciously carried out a campaign to erase the name of his father.

    Tiye, his mother. Twelve years after the death of Amenhotep III, she is still mentioned in inscriptions as Queen and beloved of the King. It has been suggested that Akhenaten and his mother acted as consorts to each other until her death. This would have been considered incest at the time. Supporters of this theory (notably Immanuel Velikovsky) consider Akhenaten to be the historical model for his mother/wife Jocasta.
    http://books.google.com/books?id=MwvM09Z-7DwC&pg=PT588&lpg=PT588&dq=tiye+jocasta&source=bl&ots=UiZODAgwe1&sig=yEyKqAanZ1J6kMS1tFdfW_h_BPo&hl=en&ei=iq65To2tDaeU2wX84PXRBw&sa=X&oi=book_result&ct=result&resnum=2&sqi=2&ved=0CCkQ6AEwAQ#v=onepage&q=tiye%20jocasta&f=false

    Some have suggested that the presence of a baby at the mourning scene implies that the princess died in child birth. It was not all that uncommon for a girl as young as 11 or 12 to be married. If a girl was capable of bearing children, she could be married. But, if she did die in childbirth, who was the father? The only male present at the scene is her father, Akhenaten himself. Could he have been the father? And what happened to the little prince or princess born to Meketaten?

    ~Nefertiti ~
    She helped her husband initiate a massive religious and cultural revolution and represented the feminine aspect of the god, Aten.

    ~Nefertiti~
    As queen, she took on powerful roles and showed herself in ways only Egyptian kings did. For example, she was often shown with the crown of a pharaoh or was depicted in scenes of battle smiting her enemies.

    QUEEN TIYE

    Tiye became a powerful queen. She was one of the first queens to have her name on official announcements.

    Because of her intelligence and forcefulness Tiye had great influence on both of these pharaohs and it was at this time the state religion converted from a polytheistic one into a monotheistic one. Tiye may well have been the primal force behind the conversion.

    For some reason, the priests of Amun did not approve of Queen Tiye, who, as time went on, seemed to be given more and more power. She was seen as a foreign person, not of royal blood and was resented.

    In one letter, Tushratta replies to the Dowager Queen's request that he continue sending his embassies to her son, the new pharaoh. In two others, he advises Akhenaten to consult his mother.

    *Note: The contradiction here is that while historians script Tiye as being this all powerful, domineering, strong force to reckon, this would better describe Nefertiti as she became the head priestess over the entire system and she was depicted many times in pharaohs attire, with a war crown on, with weapons in her hands, and smiting subjected people. Not only that but, Tiye was not even born in the court nor did she come from royalty, but was a commoner that was carefully selected and brought into a high position when she was only a child of the age of twelve (12), so no doubt, from the persepecive of the Theban priesthood [priest of Amun], she was flattered, elevated above the original Nubians, carefully monitored and given power gradually until she her ideals fit the purpose of the Mitannian people that selected her to do their will. That would mean that Tiye was conditioned to become arrogant and to go against the Thebans so, while she was definitely powerful, dominant, and a force to reckon with in regards to Black Nubian people, she was totally and completely harmless and posed absolutely no threat to White Supremacy. But based upon the actions of her son Amenhotep IV, it came a time in which Tiye began to feel slighted, used, and mocked by the Mitannian [Assyrian] people that she was initially deceived to believe she was included as being apart, and this becomes the set up of more confusion. Historians openly place the blame of the destruction of the Theban civilization on Akhenaten but covertly, they implicate Tiye. They subtly mock her and script her as being the powerful, dominant, force over her son Akhenaten and the force behind the entire Aten Movement and completely omit the evil and aggressive White force that operated in ancient Africa and that exploited her and so many other Black women.

    The favouring of the Aten over other deities started in the reign of Amenhotep III as part of a campaign to limit the power of the Priesthood of Amun at Karnak, which at the time was almost as powerful as the royal family…..

    The intense foregrounding of solar imagery, the use of dazzling sun-disk (iten-tjehen) as title…placed the king at the center of the earthly universe, a world no longer conceived of as Egypt alone. Now the vision included foreign countries, suggesting the expensive apotheosis of the Egyptian state as not only the center of cosmos, but as the ruler and beneficiary of the entire world.55 Amenhotep III’s favorite epithet was Nebmaatreatentjehen or “Nebmaatre, the Dazzling Sun Disk,” and in honor of his Sed festival, he had a large statue of quartzite made for himself in which he appears deified and characterized as the ruler of the world, the “Dazzling Sun Disk of All Lands.”56 This ideological expansionism also appears in Amenhotep III’s diplomacy, which, in the Amarna cache, displays an extraordinary level of interest in and interaction with the rest of the world.57
    …Whereas his father had numerous consorts (much of the Amarna archive contains request for beautiful foreign women), Akhenaten was different…

    In his later years Amenhotep III, now a thoroughly debauched character who experimented with wearing women's clothing, was portrayed by artists in an unusually realistic manner: obese, sagging, and listless. He was tortured by the pain of abscessed teeth, and since his doctors could not do anything about it, except sedate him with wine and opium, he wrote to the king of Mitanni, asking him to send an image of the Mesopotamian goddess Ishtar from Nineveh so her famous healing powers could bring some relief. He was in no shape to run the country, so historians believe that a few years before his death he crowned Amenhotep IV, and allowed him to run everyday affairs as co-regent.
