Shebitku

Egyptian Pharaoh. He was the third king of the Twenty-fifth Dynasty and came to power in 707 BC following the death of his uncle, Shabaka. He began his reign by continuing Shabaka's policy of conciliation with Assyria, but began to resist Assyrian expansion into Canaan when Sennacherib came to the Assyrian throne. In 701 BC he sent an army under the command of his brother, Tarharqa, to confront the Assyrians at the Battle of Eltekh. He also sent an army to defend Jerusalem against the Assyrians. His best known building project is the decoration of the Temple of Osiris Heqadjet at Thebes. He died in 690 BC and was succeeded by Tarharqa.
