Comments

Born around 1303 B.C., Ramesses II, also known as “Ramesses the Great,” reigned as Pharaoh over the Egyptian Empire from 1279 B.C. to 1213 B.C.  He is regarded as one of the greatest and most powerful Pharaohs of the Egyptian Empire.  At the age of fourteen (14), Ramesses II’s father Seti I, appointed Ramesses II Prince Regent.  Less then ten years later, Ramesses II would ascend to the throne as Pharaoh. Ramesses’ greatest accomplishments include numerous victorious campaigns against the Canaanites, Hittites, Nubians, and Sherden sea pirates; construction of a new Egyptian Capital – Pi-Ramesses; the Ramesseum (a temple complex), construction of numerous colossal statues that bore his image throughout the Egyptian Empire, and creation of arguably the world’s first Peace Treaty – a treaty signed that ended the conflict between Egypt and Hatti.
Ramesses’ rule over the Egyptian Empire lasted nearly seventy (70) years.
