Thutmose III -Lindsey and Meghan



Who am I?
Have you ever been the most powerful person in your town? I have. I was the sixth ruler of the 18th Dynasty. People say I am considered one of Egypt's most powerful warriors. My mother, Hatshepsut, became a regent when I was eight because I was too young to rule. When I was old enough, she didn't let me rule. When I finally gained power, I became one of the most powerful pharaoh's in Egypt's history. Below you will learn about the accomplishments and life of me, Thutmose III.



What were my accomplishments?I was a pharaoh at age eight. I was the most powerful pharaoh ever known. One of the greatest accomplishments of the pharaoh was the defeat of a large group on Canaanites at the Battle of Megiddo. I am considered the napoleon of Egypt. I made seventeen military campaigns, and used warfare as a way of turning Egypt into a superpower and a military force to be reckoned with.
I quelled the rebellion again ended the siege of Megiddo after almost eight months.I was compared with Napoleon but unlike Napoleon he never lost a battle. I conducted sixteen campaigns in Palestine, Syria and Nubia and my treatment of the conquered was always human.

What was my family like?I was the son of Thutmose II by a secondary wife, Iset. My fathers great royal wife was Queen Hatshepsut. My half-sister was named Neferure. When my father died, I was too young to rule so as you know, my step-mother, Hatshepsut, became my regent. I had little power over the empire while Hatshepsut exercised the formal titulary of kingship. When I reached a suitable age and demonstrated the capability, she appointed me to head her armies.

Then and Now

Thutmose III was always treated like a god because he was a pharaoh. However now we have no pharaohs just the president. Thutmose III was always a powerful warrior but now we have know powerful warriors, just the millitary. We don't think he is because pharaohs were always treated like gods and whatever they decided became a law, now for something to become a law they have to go through stuff! From then and now, things a VERY different.
