Pharaoh. A possible son of Ramses IX, he served as the ninth ruler of the 20th dynasty with a reign of perhaps 4 years. His reign is, however, is poorly documented. Ramses X was the last of his dynasty whose rule over Nubia is recorded. The kingdom, however was insecure, apparently Libyan marauders threatened, while tomb cutters were idle for long periods because rations due were in arrears. Apparently as a result, the tomb cut for the pharaoh appears to have been abandoned, still unfinished, at his death. It is uncertain if he was ever buried there since no remains or fragments of funerary objects were discovered within it. His mummy has not yet been identified.
