Throne of King Tutankhamen, showing the Pharaoh being anointed by his wife, Ankhesenamun. A picture showing King Tutankhamen (left) with his wife and sister, Ankhesenamun.

The back of the throne shows the king basking under the rays of the Aten. Queen Ankhesenamun is lightly touching the king's shoulder. The king and the queen are wearing a pair of sandals which they share.

Several objects in Tut's tomb, such as a carving on a dazzling golden throne, show a warm relationship between Tut and his bride, Ankhesenamun.

Ankhesenamun, whose name means "her life is Amun," was the daughter of Nefertiti and Akhenaten, making her the half-sister, cousin, and possibly blood sister of King Tutankhamun. She also became his wife when he ascended the throne. He was at most ten years old, and she was probably only 13. By marrying his sister, he was able to keep the pure bloodline of the gods within the royal family. Because of the inbreeding in the family, the child bride Ankhesenamun probably had some pretty severe deformities, just like her husband. Together they ruled Egypt while dealing with their own health problems.

Ankhesenamun's life was probably marked by sorrow and tragedy. There is evidence that Akhnaton may have tried to father children through his daughters, including Ankhesenamun. After the death of her husband at a very young age, she was left a bereaved widow with no heir to rule the kingdom. She may have married her maternal grandfather, a man named Ay, who ruled Egypt after the death of King Tut.

A necklace rests on a high table behind the queen. The Aten (sun disk) spreads its beneficent rays, ending in tiny hands, over the young couple [indicating that the throne dates from the early years of Tutankhamun's reign (c. 1336-1327 B.C.)]."
