Ankhesenamun was a queen of the Eighteenth Dynasty of Egypt. Born Ankhesenpaaten, she was the third of six known daughters of the Egyptian Pharaoh Akhenaten and his Great Royal Wife Nefertiti, became the Great Royal Wife of her half-brother Tutankhamun; the change in her name reflects the changes in Ancient Egyptian religion during her lifetime after her father's death. Her youth is well documented in the ancient paintings of the reign of her parents. Tutankhamun and Ankhesenamun shared the same father but Tutankhamun's mother has been identified through DNA analysis as one of Akhenaten's sisters, a daughter of Amenhotep III. Ankhesenamun was married to one king, it is possible that she was married to Tutankhamun's successor, Ay, believed by some to be her maternal grandfather. It has been posited that she may have been the Great Royal Wife of her father, after the possible death of her mother, co-regent of Akhenaten's immediate successor, Smenkhkare. Recent DNA tests released in February 2010 have speculated that one of two late 18th dynasty queens buried in KV21 could be her mummy.
Both mummies are thought, because of DNA. Ankhesenpaaten was born in a time when Egypt was in the midst of an unprecedented religious revolution, her father had abandoned the old deities of Egypt in favor of the Aten, hitherto a minor aspect of the sun-god, characterised as the sun's disc. She is believed to have been born in Waset, around year 4 of her father's reign but grew up in the new capital city of Akhetaten; the three eldest daughters – Meritaten and Ankhesenpaaten – became the "Senior Princesses" and participated in many functions of the government and religion. She is believed to have been married first to her own father; this was not unusual for Egyptian royal families. She is thought to have been the mother of the princess Ankhesenpaaten Tasherit, although the parentage is unclear. After her father's death and the short reigns of Smenkhkare and Neferneferuaten, she became the wife of Tutankhamun. Following their marriage, the couple honored the deities of the restored religion by changing their names to Tutankhamun and Ankhesenamun.
The couple appear to have had two stillborn daughters. As Tutankhamun's only known wife was Ankhesenamun, it is likely the fetuses found in Tutankhamun's tomb are her daughters; some time in the ninth year of his reign, at about the age of eighteen, Tutankhamun died leaving Ankhesenamun alone without an heir at about age twenty-one. A blue glass ring of unknown provenance obtained in 1931 depicts the prenomen of Ay and the name of Ankhesenamun enclosed in cartouches; this indicates that Ankhesenamun married Ay shortly before she disappeared from history, although no monuments show her as a royal consort. On the walls of Ay's tomb it is Tey, not Ankhesenamun, she died during or shortly after his reign and no burial has been found for her yet. A document was found in the ancient Hittite capital of Hattusa; the Hittite ruler receives a letter from the Egyptian queen, while being in siege on Karkemish. The letter reads: My husband has died and I have no son, they say about you. You might give me one of your sons to become my husband.
I would not wish to take one of my subjects as a husband... I am afraid; this document is considered extraordinary, as Egyptians traditionally considered foreigners to be inferior. Suppiluliuma I was surprised and exclaimed to his courtiers: Nothing like this has happened to me in my entire life! Understandably, he was wary, had an envoy investigate, but by so doing, he missed his chance to bring Egypt into his empire, he did send one of his sons, but the prince died murdered, en route. The identity of the queen who wrote the letter is uncertain, she is called Dakhamunzu in the Hittite annals, a possible transliteration of the Egyptian title Tahemetnesu. Possible candidates are Nefertiti and Ankhesenamun. Ankhesenamun once seemed since there were no candidates for the throne on the death of her husband Tutankhamun, whereas Akhenaten had at least two legitimate successors, but this was based on a 27-year reign for the last 18th pharaoh Horemheb, now accepted to have had a shorter reign of only 14 years.
This makes. The phrase regarding marriage to'one of my subjects' is a reference to the Grand Vizier Ay or a secondary member of the Egyptian royal family line. Since Nefertiti was depicted as powerful as her husband in official monuments smiting Egypt's enemies, she might be the Dakhamunzu in the Amarna correspondence as Nicholas Reeves believes. Ankhesenamun may have been pressured by Ay to marry him and legitimise his claim to the throne of Egypt. DNA testing announced in February 2010 has speculated that her mummy is one of two 18th Dynasty queens recovered from KV21 in the Valley of the Kings; the two fetuses found buried with Tutankhamun have been proven to be his children, the current theory is Ankhesenamun is their mother. Not enough DNA was able to be retrieved from the mummies in KV21 to make positive identities of the queens. Enough DNA was pulled to show that the mummy known as KV21a fits as the mother of the two fetuses in Tutankhamun's tomb; the assumption that she is Ankhesenamun fit

In the first round, Soszynski decided to exchange strikes with Rothwell, landed a left uppercut and held his own until he was knocked down by a short left hook from Rothwell, who slammed Soszynski to the canvas. After working from side control and standing again, Rothwell landed a series of punches at the end of the round, that knocked down Soszynski, followed this up with more punches to his downed opponent.

Rothwell was expected to face Mirko Filipović on February 21, 2010, at UFC 110.
