King Thutmose III | Tuthmosis the Third



King Thutmosis III, is the greatest ruler of Egypt throughout history, as he is the founder of the first Egyptian empire. He treated the people of the conquered countries with noble treatment; they lived in peace and prosperity after joining the Egyptian Empire. None of the records mention that he lost any battle and there are some obelisks he built in different places of the world today. One of them is located in Central Park in New York State, and the other is located on the banks of the Thames River in London, and both have a strange name, "Cleopatra's Needle"!

During the splendid twenty-year reign of Hatshepsut, Thutmosis III devoted himself to military affairs as co-agent after the death of his father Thutmosis II, without any apparent disagreement with his stepmother. For this reason, it was difficult to understand the reasons that subsequently led him to erase the memory of the queen. Perhaps, he resembled Hatshepsut in the desire to give maximum prominence to his businesses.

Tutmosis III is generally considered one of the greatest leaders and strategists of Egyptian history "the Egyptian Napoleon". During his long reign, he conducted countless military campaigns from Syria, to the Euphrates, to Nubia. his construction activity is remarkable as well. Some inscriptions praise its extraordinary physical strength, he was capable of hitting a metal target with a bow, often a palm, and passing it from side to side. At the end of his 54-year reign, he was succeeded by his son Amenophis II.

His tomb is beautiful, dug in a very deep and inaccessible gorge (and therefore not very frequently visited by tourists visiting the Valley of the Kings). The tomb is signed kv34 and is in an excellent state of conservation. The plan of the tomb is in the shape of a cartouche, probably a tribute to the god Thoth to whom our pharaoh took its name.

Like the other pharaohs of the New Kingdom, Tuthmosis III was a great builder, enriched the temple of Karnak with numerous statues and obelisks.
Decorated the temple with the so-called festival hall of Karnak where in addition to the famous Chamber of Ancestors we find the one called the Botanical Garden where the animal and vegetable species that the king had brought from Syria are represented and listed. Unfortunately, like most of his predecessors, he made use of pre-existing material for new buildings and used to erase any signs of the hated Queen Hatshepsut.

He had been buried in a magnificent tomb in the Valley of the Kings not less in artistic and architectural value than the famous attractions that one can view during the tour to Giza Pyramids.
