Who is Ahmose I

Ahmose I, also known as Amosis or Aahmes, which means "Iah (the Moon)," was an Egyptian pharaoh and the first dynasty to establish the Eighteenth Dynasty. This period is considered to be the first of the New Kingdom of Egypt, during which time ancient Egypt reached its zenith of power.

Ahmose I is classified as the first dynasty of the new kingdom of Egypt he was a member of the royal house, he is the son of pharaoh Seqenenre Tao, and the nephew of the last pharaoh of the seventeenth dynasty, Kamose. During the reign of his father or grandfather, Thebes rebelled against the Hyksos. When he was seven years old, his father was killed, and he was about ten when his brother died of unknown causes after reigning for only three years. I advise you to head to Luxor which is included in our Egypt tours to discover the best works of Ahmose I in Karnak temple. He assumed the throne after the death of his brother, during his reign, Ahmose completed the conquest and expulsion of the Hyksos from the Nile Delta, invaded Palestine, and re-exerted Egypt's hegemony over northern Nubia, to the south.
