Amenophis III would pass on his reverence of the Aten to his son Amenophis IV, and in so doing would mark the beginning of the end of the Eighteenth dynasty.
When he ascended the throne, Amenophis IV was already firmly planted in the worship of the Aten.
When Akhenaten, as Amenophis IV was now calling himself, made the worship of the Aten the only official religion, he set forth a cultural shock wave that would profoundly affect his realm.

 The True Date of the Exodus
Amenophis II is said to have been warned of the catastrophe that would befall Egypt at the Exodus by the famous Egyptian prophet Amenophis son of Hapu.
Amenophis II is said after the catastrophic departure of the Israelites to have given his 5 year old son "Sethos-Ramesses" to a friend for safekeeping, and to have promptly marched south with his army, being welcomed and entertained for the period of 13 years by the Ethiopian king.
Amenophis II was not followed on the throne by his natural heir, it may be presumed because of the death of the firstborn, but instead by an inferior son, Thutmosis IV, who, according to Manetho, held a position of leadership in the army of Thutmosis III before the departure of the Israelites.

 Rise of Assyria
Burnaburyas, who reigned 22 years, carried on a correspondence with Amenophis IV of Egypt.

In 804 BC Damascus was captured by his successor Hadad-nirari IV[?], to whom tribute was paid by Samaria.

 Akhenaten religion Aten
Thus, when Amenophis (Amenhotep) III leaves his palace, it is the Aten which rises on the horizon, when he marches into foreign lands, it is the Aten who traverses the sky and a vizier described himself as "he who contemplates the disc in his horizon" i.e.
This ascent of the Aten under Amenophis (Amenhotep) III is also evident from the name "the Aten is resplendent", given to one of the palaces and to the royal parade boat.
The young Amenophis (Amenhotep) has already married she who is – perhaps- his cousin, the beautiful Nefertiti (whose name means "The beautiful one has come") (fig 4) who thus becomes the Great Royal Wife and who is required to give birth to the male successor to the throne.

 World Art Treasures:Tel el-Amarna
Amenophis III was enthroned as King of Egypt in 1408 BCE.
Amenophis, who became Amenophis IV, was to abandon the eternal order of things as inherited from his forefathers: he would change his name from Amenophis (also spelled Amenhotep) toAkhenaten, and he would leave Thebes, the official capital, to found a new domain and order.
Those who reject her royal lineage think that Amenophis married Tiye as an act of bravado, to break with the tradition obliging heirs to the throne to marry women with blood of the gods.

 Virtual-Egypt - The Egyptian People's Papyrus
A hieratic docket in what was probably the first letter addressed by Tushratta to Napkhuria--this being the cuneiform rendering of Amenophis IV's Prenomen Neferkheprure'--dates it in year 2, and states that the Court was still in residence in western Thebes.
An exaggerated liveliness and a visible emotional intent are conspicuous; a bolder sweep of line and backs bowed lower stress the deference owed to the king; and one can hardly be deceived in the impression that the peculiarities of Akhenaten's own body have been consciously imitated in the shapes given to his subjects.
On the contrary, temple-reliefs from Soleb in Nubia, as well as a stela from Hieraconpolis in Upper Egypt, depict Amenophis III, rare cases which must belong to a phase immediately preceding the revolution, since the falcon-headed Harakhti on the stela is already equipped with the cartouches and the doctrinal epithets of the Aten.

Was the queen Tiy the daughter of Artatama, the previous wife of Touthmasis IV, she herself being the daughter of a Mitannian king?
Amenophis III had expected gratitude for the beautiful temples he had built, so he then attacked the clergy, closed the temples to Amon, and got rid of the priests.
Thus it is not surprising that Amenophis (son of Hapou) would be the inspirer of the new state religion instituted by Amenophis IV, the future Akhenaton.

Amenophis III repelled them in Phoenicia, and Subbiliuliuma descended on Kinza, having made a treaty with Egypt, and captured Edugamma and his father Suttatarra.

 Akhenaten - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Akhenaten (original pronunciation ʔxnʔtn, vowels unknown; modern pronunciation axɛnatɛn), known as Amenhotep IV at the start of his reign, was a Pharaoh of the Eighteenth dynasty of Egypt, especially notable for single-handedly restructuring the Egyptian religion to monotheisticly worship the Aten.
A religious revolutionary, Amenhotep IV introduced Atenism in the fourth year of his reign, raising the previously obscure god Aten (sometimes spelled Aton) to the position of supreme deity.
Amenhotep IV was married to Nefertiti at the very beginning of his reign, and the couple had six known daughters and possibly two sons (the sons out of Kiya).

Ramose was a governor of Thebes and vizier of Egypt under both Amenophis III and Amenophis IV (better known as Akhenaten).
It is significant not only for the quality of its paintings and low reliefs, but because the wall carvings show a transition between the formal style under Amenophis III and the new, looser style under Akhenaten.

 Egypt: The Tomb of Amenophis II, Valley of the Kings
However, this is one of the surprises in this tomb, for unlike other tombs in the valley, Amenophis II's mummy was found intact, with a garland of mimosa flowers at his neck, though the coffin he was laid in was perhaps a replacement.
Within the the western lateral annex, which was enclosed by a stone wall, Loret found his second surprise, for here he found the sarcophagi and mummies of nine other royal burials, as well as his son, Webensenu, and probably his mother, Hatshepsut-Meryetre.
We believe it was the high priest Pinudjem I (1070-1037 BC) who had these mummies stored in Amenophis II's tomb at the beginning of the 21st Dynasty, just as Pinudjem II (990-969 BC) transferred the mummies found in the Deir el-Bahri cache.
