The Amarna letters show that Tutankhamun's widow, wrote to Hittite king Suppiluliuma I, asking if she could marry one of his sons. The letters do not say how Tutankhamun died. In the message to Hittite king, Ankhesenamun says that she was afraid, but would not take one of her own people as husband. However, the son was killed before reaching his new wife. Shortly afterward Ay married Tutankhamun's widow & became Pharaoh as a war between the 2 countries was fought. Egypt was left defeated.
