How Ancient Egypt's Royal Family Drama Destroyed A Dynasty | Egyptian Family Feud | Absolute History

  • čas přidán 26. 12. 2023
  • Ancient Egypt's 19th dynasty has left a huge mark on the country's long history. Unlike their predecessors, the Ramesside's ability to produce a vast quantity of heirs made it seem like their dynasty would be one to last for centuries. However, this resulted in problems all its own, as infighting amongst Egypt's most powerful family began to tear them apart.

    A dynasty is like a family. When a family becomes large and holds great power, politics and power balance begin to evolve Within the family.

    The battle over the trees was between the province of Israel ( Lebanon) and was mor of a squabble, in that the Israelites were being conservationists an trying to manage the forest while Seti, wanted to cut down the entire forrest. The Israelites were firmly under the rule of Egypt. Since the beginning of the Empire of the 18th Dynasty. This is the period of the Hebrew account of the book of Judges where they acted as local administrators for both the 18th and 19th Dynasties. And calling for help. When outside forces such as the Hittites and the Mittani. Eventually, it resolved itself with the assistance from the Temple priests , that pointed out that the embalmers required the resins from this forrest to preserve All the Royal mummies even when Seti would need it.
    The CAT Scan on Ramses I, when he was in the custody of the Emory College museum, having been acquired fro the Niagara Falls Museum, showed a substantial amount of these resins in the chest cavity along with the mummy wrappings used to preserve Ramses I ‘s chest form.

    I wonder about the depictions of Seti and Ramses looking like all chin and no forehead. What effect does mummification have on the skeletal structure of the face and was this accounted for in the depictions?

    From Sesostris and Seti on they worshipped Set/Seth the God of Evil which didn’t teach a service-to-other lifestyle….they were cut-throat individualists a la Hittites.
    The moderator smacks of that leaning as well.

    7:00 why is Ramses in reconstruction not made the same color as his portrayals in the tomb. The paintings in the tombs paint his skin as a deep dark brown. We should honor that in the reconstructions.

If the local store is a military member if the ranking officers grant this a addition to there dress code. Look for a male and female of age 6,14,32 to have as a spoke person that will be a logo image of Barbe. Have as a contract that full funding of life will come from the earnings of the image of there valuer. And they can chose what they want with the earnings but must be able to compete in the Olympics.

Why King Tut and not Dicky Three instead of Richard III? Or King Tut and not Gigi Wash instead of George Washington. Tutanchamon is a beautiful name.
