The Pharaoh's of Ancient Egypt

Senusret IReigned during 1971 B.C.- 1926 B.C.Senusret I was the second king of the 12th Dynasty. Senusret I wasn’t concerned in sweeping conquests and confined his causes to the defense force of Egypt’s borders and to the development of usable resources. He also advanced trade with Crete and other Aegean islets and with Palestine and Syria.

Ramses IIReigned during 1279 B.C.- 1213 B.C.Ramses II was the third king of the 19th Dynasty. He was better known as Ramses the Great.He lived to be 96 years old. He had 200 wives and concubines, 96 sons, and 60 daughters. An accomplisment of his would e expanding Egypt's borders (by regaining the land from the Hittites). Ramses II was also a great builder. He built many cities,temples and monuments. The most impressive were the temples at Abu Simbel (carved out of the mountainside), and an 11 meter tall granite statue of himself, now in Ramses Square, Cairo.

KhufuReigned during 2551 B.C. - 2528 B.C.Khufu was the second king of the 4th Dynasty.He ruled for short period of time, during the Old Kindom, by being suceeded by his son, Djedefre.A big accomplishment of his is the making of the Great Pyramid of Giza (also known as the Great Pyramid of Khufu), which took 23 years to build (the time of his reign). Not much is known about the pharaoh's personal life or achievements.

MensesPresumed to have reigned during C. 3000 B.C.- C. 3100 B.C. Menes was presumed to be the first king of the 1st Dyansty, thus credited as an acomplishment of finding the first Dynasty.Another accomplishment (that is also presumed) of his is uniting Upper and Lower Egypt into a single, centralized monarchy.

Thutmose IIIReigned during 1504 B.C.- 1450 B.C.Thutmose III was the 6th Pharaoh of the 18th Dyanasty. Thutmose III was also known as Thutmosis or Tuthmosis. He became a great warrior king who launched successful military campaigns in Canaan, Syria, Nubia and Mitanni in Mesopotamia increasing the wealth and power of Egypt.

HatshepsutReigned during 1473 B.C.- 1458 B.C.Hatshepsut was the fifth ruler of the 18th Dynasty. She married her half-brother, Thutmose II, who also had a son, Thutmose III, which is basically her stepson or nephew.She is known as one of the most succesful and productive female Pharaohs, ruling longer than any other woman of an Egyptian dynasty. Most people of Egypt underestimated her as a pharaoh because of her gender as a woman. Her accomplishments include reestablishing the trade networks, overseeing the preparations and funding for a mission to the Land of Punt, and she was one of the most persistent and diligent builder pharaohs of ancient Egypt.An intersting fact about Pharaoh Hatshpsut was that she wore a fake beard from time to time because she liked the traditonality of the beard, as all the other pharaohs before her had worn one themselves.Her stepson/nephew, Thutmose III hated her greatly. The reason for this is because she took his throne when he was about to become pharaoh because he was too young to rule at the age of 7. His hatred for her leaded to him commanding a large majority of her monuments, statues, paintngs, and things of the like to be destroyes. Though, some did survive and are still around today.
