Example text

In his new capital at Amarna, a distinctive new art style developed. Akhenaten also faced the growth of a new superpower in the Hittite empire, which annexed the Egyptian provinces of southern Syria. The failure of Akhenaten’s program led to a return to the old gods and the old capital under his eventual successor, Tutankhamun, who was apparently the last of the royal line. The final rulers of Dynasty 18 sought to restore Egypt’s position at home and abroad. This new militaristic approach was favored by the rulers of Dynasty 19, who came from a military background.

He had prepared tomb KV10 in the Valley of the Kings for his burial. See also DYNASTY 19. AMENMOSE (fl. 1504–1499 BC). Egyptian prince of Dynasty 18. He was the eldest son of Thutmose I, possibly by the lady Mutnefret. He is attested in his father’s reign with the title of general and in a tomb scene with his younger brother, Wadjmose. Both predeceased their father, and the throne eventually passed to their brother or half brother, Thutmose II. AMENOPHIS. See AMENHOTEP. AMENY QEMAU (reigned c. 1793–1783 BC).

His supremecy is known for its magnificence in construction and artworks. He maintained the Egyptian empire in Asia and was in communication with the many princes of the area, as shown in the Amarna letters. His chief queen commoner, Tiy, was the mother of his eventual heir, Akhenaten, as it appears that his eldest son, Thutmose, predeceased him. Amenhotep III married several foreign princesses from Mitanni and Babylon. He also had several daughters, notably Sitamun, whom he married. A proposed coregency between father and son is debatable, and most Egyptologists reject the notion.
