Tushratta was a Mitanni king who was father in law to Amenophis III.
He hoped to keep good relations with Egypt, and when Amenophis IV
became king, Tadukhipa's
connubial duties were transferred from the father to the
son. Tushratta was the son of another Mitanni king, King Shuttarna, who had
previously sent his daughter, Gilukhipa,
to marry the Pharaoh of Egypt.
