Meritaten Already Appears in the Very Early Monuments at Karnak. She Is the Only Princess Who Appears in These Early Scenes and Is Shown Accompanying Her Mother Nefertiti. Meritaten Is Depicted on All the Boundary Stela in Akhenaten (Tell El-Amarna). She Must Have Been a Small Girl When She Moved with Her Parents to This New CityMeritaten Is Raised to the Position of Great Royal Wife Sometime During the Later Years of Akhenaten's Reign. It Is Even Possible That She Served as Akhenaten's Queen, but This Is by No Means Certain. During the Later Years of Akhenaten's Reign Nefertiti Disappears from the Scene and It Seems That Meritaten Took Over the Role as Leading Royal Lady at Court. the Maru-Aten Was Rededicated. This Sunshade / Temple Used to Belong to the Royal Beloved Kiya, but Her Image Was Everywhere Adapted for Meritaten. This Could Be a Sign That Kiya Had Suffered Some Disgrace, but It's Aso Possible That This Lady Died and That Others Took Over Her Monuments in an Act of Usurpation We Often See in Ancient Egypt. Due to the Adaption of the Monuments It's Not Entirely Clear If Young Girls by the Name of Meritaten-Tasherit ("Meritaten-Junior") and Ankhesenpaaten-Tasherit ("Ankhesenpaaten-Junior") Are Daughters of Kiya or If These Girls Are Possibly the Children of Meritaten. from a Scene in the Tomb of Merire We Do Know That Meritaten Married the Elusive Successor of Akhenaten, Named Smenkhare. in the Tomb of Merire We See Smenkhare and His Great Royal Wife Meritaten Handing Out Rewards to Merire. the Scene Is Raather Non-Standard in the Fact That the Royal Couple Is Depicted Standing Before the Window of Appearance. They Seem to Be Standing at the Same Level as the Court Official Instead of the More Traditional Depiction Where They Appear in the Window and Are Shown Handing Down Gifts. It Is Not Known What Happened to Meritaten. There Are No Known Funerary Goods Inscribed with Her Name That Have Ever Surfaced. She Seems to Have Disappeared from the Scene at Roughly the Same Time as Her Husband Smenkhare. This Has Lead Some to Speculate That Both Meriaten and Smenkhare May Have Died Due to a Plague That Seems to Have Been Ravaging the Region at That Time.Note: Dear Buyer / This Statue Is Part of My Collection of Ancient Unique and Distinctive Piece of Stone Carved in the Desert of Luxor, Egypt Since 1955 Is a Very Unique Piece, Where the Old Pieces Carved from Limestone Are Shown in the Pictures Every Part of This Statue and I Pledge the Item Is in Original Condition as Seen in the Pictures.
