The Napoleon of ancient Egypt



Thutmose III was one of the most known and respected of all of Egypt's pharaohs, regardless of dynasty or time period. He ruled during the New Kingdom, which is often seen as the “star-studded” dynasty in ancient Egyptian history because that's the dynasty where many of the “big names” come from. He had the benefit of a lengthy co-rule that allowed him to develop and hone his military skills which would serve him incredibly well during his time in power.

His early life and rule were rather unusual, and he was a powerful person, even when he was just a mere infant. He was the son of Thutmose II and one of his lesser wives of common heritage. Thutmose II was married to the incredibly powerful Queen Hatshepsut, but the two were unable to produce a male heir which meant they had to look to Thutmose II's harem for a suitable successor. Thutmose III was the chosen successor.

Due to his tender age, he would (he was just an infant when his father died) need a co-regent, or a qualified person who could rule in his place until he came of age. Since his birth mother had a humble background, it was determined that his aunt and stepmother, Hatshepsut, be his co-regent. This arrangement worked rather well and proceeded in the traditional manner for the first seven years...
