Tuthmosis, I
Birth: unknown
Death: unknown

Pharaoh. The third pharaoh of the 18th dynasty, he ruled from about 1504-1492 BC. He was an important military commander under his predecessor, Amenhotep I. After taking the throne he continued his military career, launching campaigns against Nubia in the second year of his reign, reportedly killing a Nubian war lord in hand-to-hand combat. He then proceeded against the Syrians to the north. His efforts stretched the borders of Egypt to the greatest that they would ever be. Tuthmosis flamboyantly claimed that he had enlarged the borders of Egypt to match the circuit of the sun. His public works included an extension to the temple of Amun at Karnak, and one of Egypt's largest standing obelisks. He built a hypostyle hall made entirely of cedar wood, and he did some substantial work at Giza as well. Tuthmosis I apparently died while in his fifties, and became the first pharaoh to be buried in the Valley of the Kings. Two tombs show evidence of Tuthmosis I being buried in them but it is believed that he was originally buried in tomb KV20, though his mummy was not found until the discovery of the Deir el-Bahri cache of royal mummies in 1881. Tuthmosis I was apparently worshipped as part of a mortuary cult after his death. (bio by: Iola)
