Egyptian Pharaoh. A Pharaoh of Egypt's Twenty Second Dynasty, he ruled from 885 BC until his death in 872 BC. He reigned during the Third Intermediate Period, a time of unrest in which his control over Upper Egypt was challenged by the local Theban "King" Harsiese "A". Evidence for his thirteen year reign comes from the Pasenhor Serapeum Stele and also from two donation stele that he erected at Bubastis. His mummy was moved from its original, now lost, tomb by his son, Osorkon II and reburied at Tanis in a usurped Middle Kingdom sarcophagus. His tomb was robbed in antiquity, but the thieves left behind several important artefacts, including a heart scarab, an alabaster jar and a gold bracelet.
