Father of the famed “heretic Pharaoh,” Akhenaten, and grandfather to the famous King Tut, Amenhotep III was one of Kemet’s (Egypt’s) greatest Neswet’s “nswt-bjtj” (Pharaohs) and the most successful of the 18th Dynasty.

Amenhotep’s temple is located in Nubia, in the town of Soleb, in present day Sudan and was dedicated to the Netcher (Deity), Amun Re. His wife was the powerful Queen Tiye known for her intellectual and political acumen. Amenhotep III genuinely loved and honored his wife, and regarded her as a partner in his life. He devoted a number of shrines in her honor and constructed a temple dedicated to her in Nubia in the city of Sedeinga, also in present day Sudan.
During his reign, Kemet enjoyed wealth, peace and stability. When Amenhotep III died, he left behind a country that was at the very height of its power and influence, commanding immense respect in the international world.
