Amenhotep IV, better known by his throne name Akhenaten, was an Egyptian pharaoh who reigned c. 1351-1334 BCE. He was the father of the famous Tutankhamun, and was well-known for eschewing Egypt's traditional artistic canon resulting in him appearing with an unusual ovoid head, very large lips, and spindly limbs.
- Historians, disagree about Akhenaten's unique facial features. Some have suggested that it results from a new, stylized art style. Others have suggested that it may have been some kind of congenital deformity. A third possibility is that Akhenaten was not Human.
- Boone refers to "Prince Amenhotep IV"; this is an unusual reference, since Egyptologists and laypeople alike tend to use his assumed name, Akhenaten.
