Aten 

Welcome to the Wild World of Mythology

If we turn the sands of time back, back to when the world was young and take the magic carpet over to Egypt we can find the time of Achenaten and begin to understand a bit more of the world.

Achenaten was the husband of Nefertiti and the father of Tutankhamun (Tut). He was the first known leader to believe in one God. This was during the time when Egypt, and most of the world believed in many Gods.

The reign of Achenaten lasted for 17years. The capital of Egypt was moved to Amarna, and the people were told that the only God was the Aten.

The capital city of Amarna was built with amazing speed due to the use of smaller blocks of stone. This is also the first time that Egyptian rulers were painted as they really looked.
