Facts You May Not Know About King Tut
You know that King Tut is our beloved ruler, but little did you know about his life. At the age of nine, he became ruler. Amenhotep IV was King Tut’s father before he ruled. While King Tut was still a child, he married Ankhesenpaaten, his half sister. He was born around 1341 B.C.E. Tutankhaten was his first name when he was a baby but he changed it to Tutankamun.

Out of Town News
As we all know the Assyrians had conquered most of Arabia. Some people say that they are coming to us next, others try not to think about it. We had a interview about this topic with a one of our commoners:
Reporter,” How do you feel about the Assyrians coming?”
Menna (the commoner),” Well, there are mixed feeling about this topic. But I feel if they do come we have a strong army of men and nothing to worry about.”
Reporter,” Also, if they Assyrians do conquer, what do you think will happen to our society?”
Menna,” If the do conquer, I feel that most of our civilization will weaken and start a Third Intermediate Period.”
Reporter,” Right, and if this does happen, what would happen agriculturally.”
Menna,” I think agriculturally we will do fine, but in all the others places we will fail.”
Reporter,” Thank you.”
From this interview our commoners clearly have a strong opinion on the asumption that the Assyrians are coming. We will be sure to keep you updated on this shocking news. Stay safe!

Story: Akhenaten and Nefertiti's True Love
Long ago, there lived a man named Akhenaten who looked different than other pharaohs. Not a lot of people would follow his rule. When the sculptors asked if he wanted his sculpture of him to look different than who he is a make a replica of him.
He said, “Make me exactly who I am. I am who I am and Aten, the god who I praise, chose me to be like this.”
So the sculptors made him like how he was. Later in his rule, he met a girl named Nefertiti. She looked fine but people criticized her for falling in love with Akhenaten, but she did it anyways.
She said, “Akhenaten, I love you no matter how you look.”They got married and it was all because of true love.
