An Egyptian ankh necklace

In hieroglyphics, the ankh is a symbol which represents the concept of "life" or "living being".
 
For this reason, we find the word ankh in the name of the pharaoh Tutankhamun (Tut-ankh-amun is equal to "living image of the god Amun" in the ancient Egyptian language).
 

A pendant from ancient Egypt

It is the pharaoh Amenhotep III who led Egypt to the summit of its power.
 
However, by 1355 BC, the stability of the New Kingdom was threatened when Amenhotep IV ascended the throne and initiated a series of radical and chaotic reforms. Changing his name to "Akhenaten", he promoted the previously little-known Sun god Aten, as the supreme deity and suppressed the worship of other deities.
 
The newly named Akhenaten moved the capital to Akhetaten (Tell el-Amarna, nowadays) and turned a deaf ear to foreign affairs (because being focus by its new religion).
 
At the end of its reign, the cult of Aten was quickly abandoned and the next pharaohs Tutankhamun, Ay and Horemheb erased in temples and monuments any reference to Akhenaten's heresy, now known as the "Amarna period".
