The Reign of Merenptah

(p.13) 1 The Reign of Merenptah
Poisoned Legacy

Aidan Dodson

American University in Cairo Press

The accession of Merenptah was marked by the addition of uraeus to the brow of his several princely representations, and of a new text with his kingly titles to the monumental processions of the royal sons in the Ramesseum. It was also marked by the adoption of the new prenomen Baenre and the alternate epithets “beloved of Amun” and “beloved of gods.” The building works of Merenptah were widespread, although a considerable number of his monuments from the northern Delta it is clear have been moved and usurped by later rulers. Merenptah replaced Khaemwaset as crown prince, just as many years earlier, Amenhirkopeshef A was replaced on his death by his brothers Rameses B and Khaemwaset C. Messuy and Khaemtjitry are the two viceroys who served under Merenptah.
