Who's Who of Egyptian people, queens and family: Zannanza


18th Dynasty

Zannanza was a prince of the Hittites who was sent to Egypt by his father, King Shuppiluliumash, at the request of Queen Ankhesenamon, the widow of King Tut'ankhamun (1333-1323 B.C.). She offered herself and the throne of Egypt to the prince. He was slain at the border of Egypt, probably by someone loyal to Horemhab.
