Definitely. Ruled at the most glorious apex of Egypt.


Yup...until his dear son, Akhenaten came to power...and then it was allllll downhill from there. :lol: Just kidding...but you're right, Amenhotep III DID rule when Egypt's power was at it's climax! ^_^ And that's why he's "Amenhotep the Great" 8)

Well, he wasn't a TOTAL loss...umm...yeah. :shock: But still, he's a very interesting pharaoh to me, as well as Tut. And they're father and son to boot! :lol: And this whole mystery of why Tut was "murdered", and if the assassins "Went after the father, would they go after the son?" issue, which was now disproven by CT scans and such. :? I wonder...now that the public knows that Tut wasn't murdered...will he still be as famous as he was when everyone thought he was killed by Ay and/or Horemheb? ^_^ I still consider him my favorite pharaoh regardless... :D

For Egypt I have to go with Tutmosis III.All that action,and lots of cute soldier boys.

The worldview,have to say...that guy who overthrows the evil king Ahab and the whore Jezebel."And they knew it was Jehu,for he drove very fast"
Or something like that.Later he had to suck up to the Assyrian king Cyrus,but anything to protect your people is a good thing.

For the murder...I think Ay manipulated Horemhab.Soldiers' aren't usually keen on politics,they are often forced by the people to rule.Like George Washington.

Rameses II-he ruled for such a long time and did such great things. The fact that he got caught in the lie of Kadesh makes him seem more human and real.

Hatshepsut-First off GIRL POWER! I can't imagine the guts it would take to be a ruler, expecially a female one in a time where woman were not looked at as equals, but of lower stature to men. Egypt was prosperous through her reign and it looked as if she enjoyed her role.

Thutmosis III-he was one of Egypts greatest warrior pharaohs. Though if indeed he did have anything to do with ruining Hatshepsuts monuments and defacing her name, then he's off MY list.

more favs are Amenhotep III, and rameses III..everyone after doesn't seem to hold up to standards before these great rulers. :evil:

Politically, I have to say Ramses II. There's no disputing that he was the best, even if other pharaohs have something else to credit themselves with.

Although, as far as my favorite, it's actually Tutankhaten, believe it or not. Sure, I hate how media whores have embelished him into a super-god, but he's just so fun to study and make fun of!

ramses II--67 year reign, died at 92, great builder, great warrior, his arms aren't completely folded on his mummy, he was identified as having red hair, possible pharaoh of the exodus...

and when you go to egypt, the first thing you notice is that he is EVERYWHERE.

"great warrior"

Ironically, Ramses II's greatest legacy was not war - but rather was lasting peace. He drew up the world's first known peace treaty (with the Hittites), and allowed Egypt to prosper free from the strain of war. It's quite incredible to think that you can visit the temples he had constructed over three thousand years ago, and then go and look at him in a box. It's pretty surreal.

bel, you could say the exact same thing of any fascet of Egyptology, or well.. of any ancient history. Of course no one could possibly "remember the good ol' days"! :lol: Just like you, we can only go off of what we learn.

Also, Psusennes - the treaty with the Hittites was only so the two armies could join forces against unseen forces...
Quote:
"If a foreigner marches against the country of Egypt and if Reamasesa, the great king, the king of the country of Egypt, your brother, sends to Hattusili, the king of the country of Hatti, his brother, the following message: "Come to my help against him", then Hattusili, king of the country of Hatti, shall send his troops and his chariots and kill my enemy. "


In Mesopotamia, the Assyrians were rising against the Hittites, and Egypt had a growing concern with the Lybians of the west. I would say the treaty was no more than what Germany had with Russian in WWII.

It was still an astounding move. To even speak, let alone draw up a treaty with the Hittites was a huge achievment at that time in history. Such a thing had never been done before.

I agree, Tutness. Tut was not murdered....You did not happen to read the book by Bob Brier did you....? *smiles slyly* Although he does say Tut was murdered he says it was not a blow to that back of the head......

Anywho....The best Pharaoh....? Or my fave...? My signature says it all. Neferkheperure Wa'Enre Akhenaten!!!! *WOOT*
