Pharohs

Pharohs Three important pharaohs are Thutmose III, Nefertiti and Senusret III. Thutmose III lived from 3429 to 3375, died when he was 54 years old. Thutmose was probably the most interesting one of all them being that he never lost a battle. He was a great Egyptian ruler. Along with being a great ruler he was also a great horseman, archer and a good athlete. He built the temple of Amun at Karnak.

Thutmoses mother, Hatshesut took the throne from him. Although after his mother died Thutmose went around taking everything that his mothers name was on off and replacing hers with his. Thutmose was faced with two people they were called Princes of Kadesh and Megiddo. The both of them put together had a very large and strong army. Thutmose immediatley set out with his army. Thutmose and his army crossed the Sinai dessert. They then marched into the city of Gaza. Thutmose’s private secretary, Tjaneni kept records of everything that happened which was later copied and engraved on the walls of the temple of Karnak. Many people claimed that Thutmose was a smart person of his time.

Many people even called him a genius. He understood alot of things that many others didn’t. He understood the logistics and lines of supply. Another thing he knew that others didn’t, he was probably the first person to realize and actually use the sea-power with his army men. Thutmose conducted sixteen army men in Syria, Nubia and in Palestine.

Thutmose was a national hero who was remembered way after his death. Thutmose has had some of the most powerful nations. Another important pharaoh was Nefertiti. Little is know about Nefertiti. What we do know is that she was the wife to Akhenaten which was during the eighteenth dynasty. Some debate still remains on whether Nefertiti was the actual mother of Akhenaten and also his wife at the same time. The time when Akhenaten ruled, the religion changed alot.

With the religion changing the people left behind the old gods. They then believed in heresy. It was wondered if it was Nefertitis descision or if it was Akhenatens to have a religion reform. Akhenaten was appointed on her outside of the family. As a result after appointment to position of queen of Mamphis, Nefertit disappeared.

It was assumed by many people that Nefertit was either banished or was dead. Although little evidence actually shows she died. Nefertiti was probably one of the best known queens of Egypt. Nefertiti was in many paintings and art work on monuments.Many people claim that she was a very beautiful person. There is no written record of her birth or death.

Another important pharaoh is Senusret III. Senusret III was also known as Sesostris III and Senwosret III. Senusret was the 5th king of the 12th Dynasty. he ruled for 37 years following his fathers death. It was believed that Senusret was 6’6′ feet tall. Senusret was a great builder and a skilled military trooper One of his many building projects was a temple that was built in the honor of the war god Montu. Senusret built the largest pyramid of the 12th Dynasty at Dahshur.

The bad thing is that there isn’t much left to see of it because it is falling apart. Senusret led many army’s to Nubia and to Syria. The one to Syria was believed to only be to look over the land. Senusret was later in his life worshipped as a god in Nubia. No one knows exactly why people worshipped him.

There is no written record of when he died or even how he died Bibliography internet.
