AMENHOTEP II was the son of Merytre-Hatshepsut & husband of Tiaa.  He was the 7th pharaoh of the 18th Dynasty.  Amenhotep II was much less warlike than his predecessor but managed to hold together his predecessor's territorial gains.  He was not the intended heir, but when the intended heir died, he was named high priest over Lower Egypt & put in charge of the dockyard in Memphis.  He also claimed awesome physical strength in rowing & shooting.  Amenhotep II ascended the throne at age 18.

Amenhotep II About two years before his death, Thutmose III appointed his son, Amenhotep II (ruled c. bc), as coregent.

Anubis, Egyptian God of the Dead guarding the Chest found in Tutankhamun's tomb. King Tut was an Egyptian pharaoh of the dynasty (ruled ca. 1332 BC – 1323 BC in the conventional chronology), during the period of Egyptian history known as the New Kingdom.

Howard Carter delicately, if somewhat theatrically, brushes the second of three coffins nesting one inside another within King Tutankhamun’s large quartzite sarcophagus. (The inner coffin, which held Tut’s mummy, was made of solid gold, while the outer two were made of gilded wood.) Carter made sure that the world learned of his spectacular 1922 discovery by inviting British photographer Harry Burton (1879–1940) to document the finds.
