Shuttarna

King of Mitanni, reign of Amenophis III, 1417-1379 BC.
    The Amarna Letters—the royal archive found at the site of Tell el Amarna—preserve the correspondence between the rulers of *Mitanni and the Egyptian kings, *Amenophis III and *Akhenaten.
    A marriage was arranged between *Amenophis III and *Ghilukhepa, the daughter of Shuttarna, and she came to Egypt accompanied by over three hundred attendants. The son and successor of King Shuttarna—*Tushratta—continued to pursue diplomatic relations with Egypt.
