[quote="Kiya"]I really need my books around me to give you detailed information. I'm in m office at the mom so i'll just give you the basics from memory.
Right well firstly he was born a commoner. Horemheb chose Seti's father Ramses I to succeed him because he already had a living son and grandson. He thought this important because of the problems egypt had had with heirs. Both he and Ay were not born into the royal family. They acquired power when all other heirs were dead.
The name 'Seti' means 'man of Seth' and indicates an alligence to the north and lower egypt. We know his son Ramses also had red hair which was a colour associated with Seth.
Seti took a wife from his own social class. Her name was Mut-Tuya or more commonly seen 'Tuya'. We know he was the son of Ramses the Great but he had another son who died at which point Ramses became the heir.
He reigned for about 11 years. His tomb in KV I think is the largest one there for a pharaoh. It's very close between him and his son.
I have some lovely pictures of his tomb. Could scan them in and email them to you if you don't find them on another site somewhere.[/quote]
