Best Answer

Nefertiti was the wife of Amenhotep IV (Akhenaton), who ruled Egypt for 20 years. Tutankhamen (King Tut) was his son by a lesser wife called Kiya. Akhenaten turned Egypt from polytheism to monotheism. Tut became Pharaoh at age 9 after the death of his father. He changed Egypt back from a monotheist religion (worship of one god) to polytheism (worship of more than one god). King Tut died at age 18 from a broken leg, probably from carriage incident when hunting or at war.

Nefertiti, circa 1370 - 1330 B.C. was the Great Royal Wife of Egyptian Pharaoh Amenhotep IV She was also the mother-in-law and probable stepmother to the future King Tutankhamen.

There is a possibility that she was the Queen of Egypt after her husband's death and before the accession of Tutankhamen, using the name of Nefernefervaten. She had six daughters. Her name meant "the beautiful woman has come".
