Prince Tutankham, Tut Ankh Amon, lived alone in the midst of hating everyone, especially his father’s wife Queen Nefertiti, who hated Tut as he would be the next king of Egypt instead of her, one of her many daughters, or instead of her son, whom she failed to give birth six times.
All of that was surrounded Tut while his father was busy ruling and worshiping the new god Aton, and the mother of Tut died.

He died shortly after that due to contamination of his wounds and disease of his legs and feet, and after the unexpected death of Tutankhamun at a young age and without having a Crown Prince, as his wife got pregnant in twins, but that failed in the end, Ankhesenpa-Amun was forced to marry Horemheb.
