Thutmose III
Birth: unknown
Death: unknown

Egyptian Pharaoh. He succeeded his father, Thutmose II, in 1504 BC when he was still a child. His stepmother, Hatshepsut, initially acted as regent on his behalf. She soon usurped the throne and declared herself "king" in his place. Thutmose only ruled in his own right after her death. In later years he took revenge by destroying many of her reliefs and statues. He is considered one of the greatest warrior pharaohs, and is often referred to as the Napoleon of Egypt because of his military victories and short stature. He took the city of Megiddo, Gaza, by mounting a surprise attack through an unguarded narrow pass that could only be marched through in single file. He also established Egyptian rule over Palestine and made campaigns into Nubia. He was a great builder, erecting temples at Amada and Semna in Nubia, and at Akmin, Heliopolis and Dier el Bahri in Egypt. In addition, he made improvements to the great temple at Karnak, including two pylons, obelisks and a new structure known as the Festival Hall. He died in 1450 BC, at about age 60. His tomb was robbed in antiquity, and his badly damaged mummy was reburied in the cache of royal mummies at Dier el Bahri. It was found in 1881, and is now housed in the Egyptian Museum, Cairo. (bio by: js)
