What change did King Tutankhamun make while he was a pharaoh?
When king Tutankhamun was born, he was raised in the Aton-religion, which believed in one true god, Aton, the sun. The Aton-religion was made by Tutankhamuns farther, AKhenaton, and he named the boy Tutankhamun, Tutankhaton. When Tutankhamun was 9 or 10, Akhenaton died, and Tutankhamun became king. The Aton-religion was removed, and with assistance from the army leader Horemheb, Tutankhamun introduced the old religion, and changed name from Tutankhaton to Tutankhamun. He and Horemheb tried to destroy all traces from the Aton-religion.
