Pharaoh. The son of Ramses III and his queen, Isis. He became crown prince in the 22nd year of his father's reign and succeeded as the third pharaoh of the Twentieth Dynasty. He ruled from about 1154 to 1148 BC. Some scholars claim Ramses IV presided over the court that tried those arrested in the so called Harem Conspiracy which led to the death of his father. He is largely known for his public works programs which included the enlargement of his father's Temple of Khonsu at Karnak and the construction of a large mortuary temple near the Temple of Hatshepsut. After a short reign of about six years, Ramses died and was buried in the Eastern Valley of the Kings in tomb KV2, but his mummy was later discovered in the royal cache unearthed in tomb KV35 in 1898 and is now in the Egyptian Antiquities Museum in Cairo.
