This chapter focuses on the reign of Rameses III, perhaps the last truly great pharaoh. Though external conflict would mar the first several years of his reign Rameses III would later go on to start a major building program, supplemented by another of tree planting and a consolidation of law and order. His internment would mark the end of an era in Egyptian history. Although the royal line was to continue, the vitality of the New Kingdom was all but spent, and never again would Egypt occupy such a lofty position on the world stage as it had done under the Thutmosides and earlier Ramesides.

Keywords:   Rameses III, Twentieth Dynasty, New Kingdom, Sethnakhte, Libya, pharaoh, Egypt
