Amenhotep III

Amenhotep III was the 9th pharaoh of the 18th Dynasty, ruling Ancient Egypt for a period of great prosperity. He was the son of Thutmose IV and went on to father a number of children, including Akhenaten, the father of Tutankhamun. It is documented that Amenhotep III reigned for a period of 38/39 years and his reign marks the pinnacle of Egypt’s power, internationally and artistically. An unprecedented number of statues survive from his reign, documenting his life through sculpture. Egypt maintained a relatively peaceful period during Amenhotep III’s reign, with only one campaign recorded in Nubia. He was eventually succeeded by his second son, Amenhotep IV, who changed his name to Akhenaten. So successfully and favourable is Amenhotep’s reign, he is labelled Amenhotep the Magnificent.
