The Dick Cheney of the Nile

"Aye continued in power under Tut, who quickly returned to the old capital and restored the old religion. That Tut accomplished all this before his 12th birthday suggests Aye was the power behind the throne. After Tuthankamun died from a mysterious accident involving a broken leg, the Dick Cheney of the Nile finally became pharaoh in 1323 B.C.E."
