King Tut's wife, his half sister (or niece) Ankhesenamun, seems to have been the marrying type. In ancient Egypt it was acceptable for royalty to marry within the family, probably in order to help preserve dynastic succession. King Tut's predecessor Akhenaten and his queen, Nefertiti, had at least six children, but presumably no sons, as only girls are pictured in sculptures and reliefs of the family. This lack of boys in the main royal line Akhenaton may have had a son or two, but by other, secondary, wives) made the question of dynastic succession a pressing problem.
