I just remember "Aten" meant sun, and he wanted to be worshipped as the new sun god instead of Ra.  If we go through all the iterations of "Aten" we're sure to hit on it! ;-D

Archeologists are still unsure if this king ruled his own part of the Egyptian kingdom parallel to Ramses II or in his own dynasty, because in his era he destroyed a lot of cultural treasures to establish his own monotheistic cult.

Ahkenaten?
Wow! I didn't know this very different but afawikik absolutely right alias of "Echnaton". You just spelled it slightly wrong - it's "Akhenaten" -, but You are of course right, Darth.

I wanted to guess without looking it up so I just went all phonetic!

I'll whip up another ASAP. Watch this space...

This prolific, late 19th century, serial killer brutally murdered women. The murderer continued until his/her murders started making headlines. Then the killings just stopped and the killer was never caught.

It was not Jack the Ripper. However, given that the murders in question took place before the murders by Jack the Ripper (and neither were caught) I suppose we can't positively say it wasn't the same person. However, in the case of this question, it was not Jack the Ripper.

H H Holmes? Other than Jack the Ripper he is the only serial killer I know of from that time and I am pretty sure he was before Jack the Ripper.

There was an American murderer, who killed many women with an axe and was never arrested, but I don't remember his name. The "servant girl killer" or something similar?

Close enough! The Servant Girl Annihilator was the moniker penned by writer O.Henry. The string of murders took place in Austin, Texas USA between 1884 and 1885. The killer's first six victims were servants (all black) so didn't get much press until the next two (and final) victims were killed and they happened to be white. Then the media hysteria started and the killing stopped.
