On November 26, 1922, near Luxor, Egyptologist Howard Carter discovered the tomb of Tutankhamun, one of the last descendants of a family that ruled Egypt for eight generations. Under the reign of this 18th dynasty, the Egyptian kingdom became the richest and most powerful in the world. This series focuses on the life and work of Tutankhamun’s ancestors, Queen Hatshepsut, the sublime Nefertiti and the enigmatic Akhenaten, some of the most fascinating characters in Antiquity.
