Chapter Summary

Long one of the bones of contention around which the coregency debate has swirled, the tomb of Kheruef has never been considered to be the primary crux in the coregency controversy, but just one of a myriad pieces of evidence, thus far more or less inconclusive, brought forth to support or refute the possibility of joint rule. William Murnane's later analysis of the work in Kheruef, in his monograph on Egyptian coregencies, conceded that it is possible that the progress of the decoration flowed from east to west, but if so, there must have been a significant chronological gap between the entrance doorway and the western side of the open court. The presumption that Kheruef's tomb was excavated and decorated in the usual Theban manner, proceeding from east to west, demonstrates the rise of Amenhotep IV to the throne before the death of his father.
