Mourning the death of Thrax, whose head has been sent to the Hittite king, Ankhesenamun tries to find peace again. But as she resumes her normal life, her world is rocked by another death — this time, that of her brother-husband, Tutankhamun.
As Ankhesenamun tries to keep control of her throne and her country, the chief advisors tighten their own hold on power. Tension escalates as Ankhesenamun tries to keep the advisors at bay. Eventually, stripped of any authority and confined to her own chambers, she does the unthinkable — she sends a message to the Hittite king offering the throne of Egypt to one of his sons.
