BiographyEdit

Amenhotep III was estimated to have taken the throne at the age of 12. He was a prolific builder in his time, as many of his monuments still stand today (such as the Luxor and the Colossi of Memnon. He was the son of Thutmosis IV and Queen Mutemwiya, and had two sons of his own, the youngest succeeding him as Amenhotep IV. His time as a king was known for peace and prosperity due to international trade and a strong gold supply.

MummificationEdit

Amenhotep III died of an unidentified illness and was mummified and buried in the Valley of the Kings in tomb KV22. His real remains were found hidden in the Royal Cache along with his father, Thutmosis IV.

StudiesEdit

His tomb was intially found in 1799 by a French expedition. In here were many of his riches and artifacts. It was not until 1881 that his real body was found in the Royal Cache. Not much was left of the body, as the skull and bones had deteriorated much over time.
