C.1332 B.C, At the crack of dawn, surrounded by four servants in the luxurious bedroom for the prince of Egypt; with many brilliant pieces of furniture each made of solid gold, gilded wood, many various jewels, semiprecious stones, and glasses in diverse colors & shapes, the 9-year-old prince Tutankhamun1 with a deformed left leg holding a gilded walking stick with the head and the upper body of a little anicent Egyptian boy-shaped decoration, let his servants dress his tiny body in the formal court wear that made of new, white linen and an Egyptian broad collar Usekh, and many bracelets; all made of solid gold, many diverse jewels, semiprecious stones, and glasses in diverse colors & shapes, his mind and heart were very immature, he was just a child who had a developing brain and a fragile soul as other normal children of his age, so he couldn understand the weird situation, besides, the too brief, short mention, and the cold demand of his stepmother, the queen of Egypt, Nefertiti2, wasn the proper help to him, therefore with not only empty but also complicated mind with the question about the reason why he must wear those many uncomfortable, heavy things, he let them dress and decorate his short, small, fragile body with those weird things, cause his instinct had already noticed that he had no power to stop them treating his prisonic body belonging to his dead father, the pharaoh of Egypt Akhenaten3 and Nefertiti, therefore those servants continued to treat him like that as Nefertiti wanted and ordered,
And six hours later, the sun was at the highest point, and at the same time under the intensity of the scorching sunlight, an enormous number of the fatigued crowd waited for their new king tediously, all of them were forced to be there by the threat of those soldiers under the power of Egyptian royals, and one per person, many court ladies all holding big baskets filled with a large number of white camomile petals and white rose petals and standing next to both sides of the platform for the coronation ceremony, were also tired by the sunlight and the heat as the crowd did, but because of those spears, Khopeshes4 and whips that those soldiers held, no one could escape from the forced situation, and at the same time, pushing his way through the crowd, a thin, young man in shabby clothes holding a small, open sack filled with diverse, small amulets each made of various, semiprecious gemstones, and normal stones, tried to sell those amulets desperately, and an elderly man in shabby clothes who were thin, weak, and sick, begged for coins and food carrying a cracked wood cane barely, and after a while, as soon as one among the government officials gave those court musicians a look all sitting next to those court ladies, they played bronze trumpets and reed flutes, and at the same time, as soon as those soldiers heard the sound, two of them dragged the young man and the old man both out of the crowd and beat them with the butts of their spears cruelly, soon before they came back to their positions in ther hurry, they trampled those mens belongings brutally while the crowd just began to cheer for the royal family; Tutankhamun, his siblings; two princes; Smenkhkare and Tutankhopesh*, six princesses; Ankhesenamun, Neferneferuaten Tasherit, Meritaten, Neferneferure, Meketaten, and Setepenre, and Nefertiti who already all approached those gilded chairs on the stage surrounding the platform,
Then soon, as soon as Tutankhamun; who was not only spoiled but also still had pureness and warmness even a bit in his immature heart, found the scene, he was shocked and directly felt sympathized with those men even a little,
”Mother, why are those soldiers beating those men? ” asked he,
”Because they hindered many subjects from cheering and praising us, so they must be beaten, every life isn equal, we
e living gods and chosen ones, and they
e worthless, unimportant savage kinds, because they weren born as royals, therefore they must call us your majesty, your highness, and perfect ones and make a deep bow to us, because they aren important and perfect, we
e important and perfect, Amun Ra* only has allowed us to live brilliantly like gold, the flash of God, not those unimportant, imperfect subjects, they don deserve to live like us, because they aren royals! ” answered she coldly,
Soon she continued to say grasping his too fragile both shoulders and staring at his too hollow, purposeless eyes,
”From now on, you aren a prince anymore, you
e the pharaoh of Egypt, you must represent our chosen privilege and power, show them your chosen body and power as their king, as their god, as their Pharaoh! ”
Therefore as his stepmother; the another poor one; who had been brainwashed by the wrong education & notion of her parents, grandparents and ancestors, ordered and desired, wearing those jewerlies made of brilliant gold and carrying the brilliant, gilded walking stick with the brainwashed mind by his good-heartless dead father and warm-heartless stepmother who both had raised him wrong like that, carefully stepping on the platform covered with many petals of white camomiles and white roses surrounded by three brilliant, golden statues of Amun Ra, Horus* and Bastet*, as soon as he showed his appearance, the crowd cheered for the new pharaoh reluctantly, soon he was overwhelmed by the loud cheers of the enormous number of subjects and those countless many peatls of white camomiles and white roses all dancing in the air brilliantly that those court laides sprinkled for the little boy king, he couldn realize that he was just a tool to continue the extravagant life of his royal family, although most of those subjects suffered by poverty and hunger, royals didn care and ate high off the hog,
After a little, the tiny, little child gave the walking stick to the nearby servant and directly sat on the brilliant, golden throne still carefully, soon as soon as his two servants finished helping him to hold the handles of The Crook and The Flail5 both made of heavy bronze covered with alternating stripes of blue glass, obsidian, and gold while the flails beads are made of gilded wood, the chief priest of the temple of Amun Ra crowned the new pharaoh with a Khepresh6, while he directly made a deep bow to him, except soldiers and court musicians, soon other priests, servants, and court ladies also all made deep bows to the new pharaoh; the immature child king, and at the same time every subject cheered loud and louder, to avoid the violence of those soldiers under the vicious order of royals,
Then while those subjects cheered loudly and other royal family members stared at their new tool, the new pharaoh, the fragile boy king haughtily, among those members of the royal family, the only one glared after the pharaoh threateningly, while the 9-year-old prince Tutankhopesh glared at his fraternal twin brother Tutankhamun accursedly, soon he clenched his right fist that grasped the deformed left leg of his one second older twin brother when they were born together, when his brother came out first, one second faster than him.

Kiya (?~?) : Kiya was one of the wives of the Egyptian Pharaoh Akhenaten. Little is known about her, and her actions and roles are poorly documented in the historical record, in contrast to those of Akhenatens Great royal wife, Nefertiti. Her unusual name suggests that she may originally have been a Mitanni princess.

(4) How Tutankhamun was died? : The scientists have focused on a fracture in Tuts left thigh bone as the most likely cause of death. The CT scan showed a thin coating of embalming resin around the leg break, suggesting that Tut broke his leg just before he died and that his death may have resulted from an infection or other complications.

-> and the author supposed like, what could happen? if Tutankhamun had a twin brother. and created Tutankhamuns twin brother and their not only realistic but also surrealistic story, and also created his twin brothers name as Tutankhopesh*, Tutankh + Khopesh = Tutankhopesh, and cause no one can find the records about the exact dates of birth & death and other many exact stories of Tutankhamuns parents and other family members and other historical facts, the author had to create more stories and also had to change several elements.
Nefertiti2 (1370 BC~1330 BC) : Neferneferuaten Nefertiti was a queen of the 18th Dynasty of Ancient Egypt, the great royal wife of Pharaoh Akhenaten. Nefertiti and her husband were known for a religious revolution, in which they worshipped solely the sun disc, Aten, as the only god.

The Crook and The Flail5 : The crook and flail (heka and nekhakha) were symbols used in ancient Egyptian society. They were originally the attributes of the deity Osiris that became insignia of pharaonic authority. The shepherds crook stood for kingship and the flail for the fertility of the land.
The earliest known example of a crook is from the Gerzeh culture (Naqada II), and comes from tomb U547 in Abydos. By late Predynastic times, the shepherds crook was already an established symbol of rule. The flail initially remained separate, being depicted alone in some earliest representations of royal ceremonial. Approximately by the time of the Second Dynasty the crook and flail became paired.
The only extant pharaonic examples of both the crook and flail come from the Tomb of Tutankhamun. Their staffs are made of heavy bronze covered with alternating stripes of blue glass, obsidian, and gold, while the flails beads are made of gilded wood.

*Amun Ra : Amun-Ra was the chief of the Egyptian gods. In the early days of the Egyptian civilization, he was worshipped as two separate gods. Amun was the god who created the universe. Ra was the god of the sun and light, who traveled across the sky every day in a burning boat.

*Horus : Horus or Heru, Hor, Har in Ancient Egyptian, is one of the most significant ancient Egyptian deities who served many functions, most notably as god of kingship and the sky. He was worshipped from at least the late prehistoric Egypt until the Ptolemaic Kingdom and Roman Egypt. Different forms of Horus are recorded in history, and these are treated as distinct gods by Egyptologists. These various forms may be different manifestations of the same multi-layered deity in which certain attributes or syncretic relationships are emphasized, not necessarily in opposition but complementary to one another, consistent with how the Ancient Egyptians viewed the multiple facets of reality. He was most often depicted as a falcon, most likely a lanner falcon or peregrine falcon, or as a man with a falcon head.
The earliest recorded form of Horus is the tutelary deity of Nekhen in Upper Egypt, who is the first known national god, specifically related to the ruling pharaoh who in time came to be regarded as a manifestation of Horus in life and Osiris in death. The most commonly encountered family relationship describes Horus as the son of Isis and Osiris, and he plays a key role in the Osiris myth as Osiriss heir and the rival to Set, the murderer and brother of Osiris. In another tradition, Hathor is regarded as his mother and sometimes as his wife.
Claudius Aelianus wrote that Egyptians called the god Apollo ”Horus ” in their own language. However, Plutarch, elaborating further on the same tradition reported by the Greeks; specified that the one ”Horus ” whom the Egyptians equated with the Greek Apollo was in fact ”Horus the Elder ”, who is distinct from ”Horus the son of Osiris and Isis ” (that would make him ”the Younger ”)

*Bastet : Bastet was the goddess of protection, pleasure, and the bringer of good health. She had the head of a cat and a slender female body. Bastet was the daughter of Ra, sister of Sekhmet, the wife of Ptah, and the mother of Mihos. Since the Second Dynasty, Bastet was worshiped as a deity, most commonly in Lower Egypt.
