Amenhotep II

After the pharaoh warrior Thutmose III, we now follow the hierarchical succession to speak of his successor, his son Amenhotep II who, as we have seen, reigned, in co-operation with his father for two years and four months. On the death of his father he became the seventh pharaoh of the XVIII Egyptian dynasty. Amenhotep II, (Amenophis in Greek), was the son of Merira Hatshepsut (not to be confused with the pharaoh woman), a minor wife of Thutmosi III. From the Great Royal Bride, Satiath, Amenemhat was born but died at a young age. Physically gifted, Amenhotep II, like his father, excelled in sporting activities, archery, running, horse riding as well as being an expert rower. Following in the footsteps of his father Amenhotep II he pursued the same imperialist policy, accentuating its...

Hidden Chamber in Great pyramid

Hidden Chamber in Great pyramid confirmed by New Scan 2019

Hidden Chamber in Great pyramid Two years ago a big discovery in the Great Pyramid was announced in a paper in Nature: “a large void” (at least 30m/100ft in length) above the Grand Gallery. The find constituted “the first major inner structure found in the Great Pyramid since the 19th century”. The new discovery was achieved by the Scan Pyramids project – a cross-disciplinary, multi-institution/nation effort that has employed various high-tech, non-destructive methods – such as infra-red thermography and muons radiography – to ‘scan’ the Great Pyramid for hidden cavities and/or structures.   Scan Pyramids ( Hidden Chamber in Great pyramid ) Now, two years later, the Scan Pyramids team have released a new video (embedded below) announcing that the large cavity – which generated...

Senemnut

Senenmut

Senemnut Senenmut a man of the street, (as they say), son of a certain Ramose and Hatnefer (also called sympathetically Titutiu), did not come from the entourage of the Egyptian nobility. Originally from Upper Egypt, near the first cataract of the Nile, he came to Ermonthis following his family where he settled. Still young he participated in the first military campaigns where he proved to be very valiant, in recognition he was awarded the “Menefert” bracelet (the one who makes beautiful). By now fully included in the Pharaonic court, Senemnut and Hapuseneb, on the death of Thutmose II, unconditionally supported the accession of Hatshepsut, first as regent and then as a fully sovereign. Hatshepsut expressed his gratitude towards the two and did not abhor in granting them...

Thutmose III

Thutmose III

Thutmose III Hatshepsut is dead. But in the distance already, the echo of arms resounds. The hour of Thutmose III has arrived. After 22 years of co-operation with his stepmother, the warrior character that that boy had been able to restrain, accepting to play a secondary role for such a long time, now he can express himself in all his power. Certainly, his tacit submission to Hatshepsut was also the natural consequence of the fact that the queen enjoyed the support of the powerful Theban clergy of Amon. His role was of secondary importance but he was able to manage with great intelligence and skill. During the entire period of coregency, in the shadow of the female pharaoh, a shrewd and able man grew up. Thutmose III devoted himself principally to military matters, laying the...
