Psusennes I
Birth: unknown, Egypt
Death: unknown, Egypt

Egyptian Pharaoh. His name means "The Star Appearing in the City" and he reigned for between forty one and forty six years during the Twenty first Dynasty. He was responsible for building the enclosure walls and central part of the temple of Amun, Mut and Khonsu at Tanis. At the time of his reign the High Priests of Amun controlled the area surrounding Thebes, but he maintained good relations with them and the High Priest Smendes II gave grave goods for his tomb. He died in 1001 BC and his tomb is the only Egyptian royal tomb to completely escape the attentions of the tomb robbers. It suffered serious water damage, but contained much gold and silver, including a fine gold burial mask and a solid silver sarcophagus. (bio by: js)
