Ahmose I

Ahmose I is among the many ancient pharaohs and rulers in Egypt and his name means "the moon is born." Much of what is known about Ahmose I is from his tomb which was discovered. He is believed to have been only ten years old at the time of assuming the throne. 

 

Ahmose I's Family

 

Seqenenre Tao II was Ahmose I's father and Kahmose was his brother. Both of them died during the war with Hykos which led to the early crowning of this king. Queen Anhotep is believed to have been Ahmose I's powerful mother. Queen Ahmose Nefertari is believed to have been the sister-wife of Ahmose I and he relied on her a lot. Another influential person in his life was his grandmother Queen Teitshree, who offered him support throughout his reign.

Ahmose I's Tomb

The tomb of Ahmose I has a detailed autobiography inscribed in it that clearly tells about his life. It explains that the early years of his rule as a king were fairly quiet. But halfway through his reign of twenty-five years, the pharaoh resumed hostility against enemies and started making attacks on Hykos. He tried to capture Avaris and Memphis and retake Heliopolis. Ahmose I laid siege to the Hyksos fortress at Sharuhen for six years, at last forcing them to retreat. The king then led his army to Nubia (Kush), imposing his control as far as the Second Cataract. He installed a Viceroy in Buhen to manage the area.

The three queens who have been the wives of Ahmose I are Sit-Kamose Princess of Egypt (Theben), Ahmose-Nefertari Queen of Egypt and Sensonb (concubine) of Egypt. The children of Ahmose I are Ahmose Queen of Egypt, Amenhotep I Djeserkare King of Egypt, Sitamun Princess of Egypt, Ahhotep III Princess of Egypt, Merit-Amun Princess of Egypt and Thutmosis I Akheperkare.

 

The Remains Of Ahmose I

Ahmose I is believed to have been buried in the Dra Abu el-Naga area of Egypt. The mummy which was found during excavations was reburied in Dier El Bahari cache so as to protect it from the tomb robbers during antiquity. However, it’s still known that he constructed a cenotaph at Abydos that consisted of two temples. One of the two temples stood against the cliff and the other one on the edge of the river Nile along with a small pyramid. The pyramid is said to be the last among the royal pyramids in ancient Egypt. Inside the pyramid, one can see the pharaoh shown in the many battle scenes which even shows some of the earliest illustrators of horses in Egyptian art and drawings from those times.
