Tantamani
Birth: unknown
Death: unknown

Egyptian Pharaoh. He was the final ruler of the Twenty-fifth Dynasty and the last of Egypt's line of Nubian Pharaohs. He came to the throne in 664 BC and immediately embarked on an expedition to regain Egyptian territory that had been taken by the Assyrians. He reoccupied all of Egypt and killed the Assyrian's puppet king Necho I, but the Assyrians launched a massive counter attack which resulted in the destruction of Thebes. He continued to hold power in Upper Egypt until 656 BC when Thebes fell to Psamtek I, a second Assyrian sponsored ruler. From this time until his death in 653 BC he ruled only over his homeland of Nubia, where he was buried in an Egyptian style pyramid at the royal cemetery. (bio by: js)
