Hi people! :wink:
Yesterday I was looking at a book of an Italian Egypt's historian, whose name is Sergio Donadoni; inside it there is a chronological scheme of Egyptian Dynasties... Looking at it, I was surprised when I saw that in the MK the period of reign from Dyn 13th to Dyn. 17th comprehends 150 years, from 1750 to 1600 BCE; in the Second Intermediate Period, the 17 th Dyn. reigns from 1715 to 1540... So there is a period in which two Dynasties reign in the same period: how can it be possible?
Thanks a lot!!!

Hmm. In this book I have by Aidan Dodson it shows the Middle Kingdom is from the middle of the 11th dynasty through the 15th (no 14th dynasty?). A total of 416 years. 2066-1650.

I dunno if I'm talking about the same thing or not. Am I? :lol:

I got three different versions for the question in three different books. One is as the same as Ramsekh's. The another is in that Oxford History of Ancient Egypt - it writes that the middle kingdom was started from the 11th dynasty (with Mentuhotep II in 2055 B.C.) to the 14th dynasty (ended in 1650 B.C.) That's 405 years total... and the S.I. period is from 1650 to 1550 (sure it's not exactly, but let's say...) so it's 100 years. The another is in Kent R. Weeks' book (it's about the Kv5) the M.K. is from 2040 to 1782 - 258 years. So every book writes another date... who knows exactly?

Hi Hatshesut76. I think I may be able to explain the answer to your question.

First, we know that the Intermediate Periods of Ancient Egypt were eras where foreign rulers took over Egypt and/or the Two Lands were divided and ceased to be unified by one king. During these times, particularly the beginings of the First and Second Intermediate Periods, there were many short lived reigns by fairly insignificant rulers. Record keeping gets a bit obscure during these periods, which explains the various dates and chronologies amongst historians and Egytpologist. We do have some texts that provide some clarity like the Turin Canon to name one(in your home land!) but there is still some info missing. A number of other ancient sources conflict with the Turin Canon as well as with each other.

Secondly, during the Second Intermediate period foreigners such as the Hyksos (Dyn. 15-17) ruled from the Delta region. During the 17th dynasty, a line of Theban princes began gaining power and ruled concurrently in the south with the Hykos in the North until Kamose expelled them and once again unified the Two Lands. This explains the overlap of the two dynasties: The 17th Dynasty Hyksos in the North and the 17th Dynasty Theban Princes in the South who both claimed rule over Egypt during this time.This type 'split rule' may have occured throughout the whole of the Second intermediate period.

Sergio Donadoni and other historians/Egyptologists may consider the reigns of the Egyptian rulers during this time frame to be part of the Middle Kingdom and the reign of the foreign rulers (Asiatics and Hyksos) to be the Second Intermediate Period.

Hope this helps.

Just been to a talk - the lecturer said there might have been 5 different pharohs at the same time during the time of the Hyksos.

The lecture was by Charlotte Booth. She has just written a book on the Hyksosbut had sold out by the time I arrived at the meeting.

The news concerning the five different Pharaos was interesting; I didn't remember it! :wink:
