"The life story and times of Amenhotep III, the richest, most powerful ruler in the world 4300 years ago, and one of the most artistically productive in the history of the world. This book plucks Amenhotep III, who ruled for 38 years and called himself "dazzling" from the shadows of his son, Akhenaten, and grandson Tutankhamen, and follows his life from conception to Afterlife. The prince's multi-faceted education and possible early career are outlined. As king, his many wives, especially the great queen Tiy, and international relations, including trade in West Asian princesses, gold, and horses, are documented. Royal and courtly lifestyles, including palaces, villas, furnishings, and fashions, are described, as well as major monuments, military activity, and weaponry. A historical and geographic introduction sets the stage"-- Provided by publisher.
