Giford in A25160375 The Amarna Period you say:
<>
I've added a footnote to say "Or at least mixed-race."
because we don't know what colour skin Akhenaten's father had, do we?

Is that alright?

It might be better to change that to 'It should be noted that, since his mother was a Nubian, Amenhotep must have been mixed-race' - his paternal line was native Egyptian, i.e. middle-eastern.

A25160375 The Amarna Period
Collapse and Counter-Revolution
Akhenaten died in the 17th year of his reign, while aged around 30-something (accurate age unknown). He was replaced by his co-regent Smenkhkare, who attempted to continue with the Aten-only faith. However, within a year Smenkhkare too was dead, undoubtedly as the result of a power struggle of some sort, and vizier Ay was on the throne.

smiley - erm do you mean that vizier Ay was regent for the boy king Tutankhamun?

In any event it was unprecedented and, combined with the loss of territory, was taken as a sign that the gods were displeased with the new regime. This may have contributed to the effectiveness with which the Amarna regime was erased from Egyptian history.

I've changed that second "regime" to:

Yes - "and Tutanhkamun was on the throne, possibly being controlled by his vizier (and future pharaoh) Ay."
