Egypt becomes a power to be reckoned with as conquests extend as far as Syria and the Euphrates and these pharaohs are determined never to allow Egypt to be ruled by outsiders again.  Egypt again becomes wealthy.  Akhenaten, who comes to be known as the heretic king rules during this Dynasty.  He brings Aten (sun disc god) to the forefront and diminishes the role of the god Amun (meaning the hidden one).  The boy Tutankhamen also rules during in this era.

A shift in art and architecture took place mostly devoted to Amen or Amun the God of Thebes through both the 19th and the 20th Dynasties. Abu Simbel, Ramesseum, and Karnak temples are built during this period. Trials of the tomb robbers come forth.  Tanis becomes the capital and Thebes is under the rule of priests.
