  • Notes 
    • Ramses I (reigned 1320-1318 BC), ancient Egyptian king, first ruler of the 19th Dynasty. Ramses was a general under his predecessor, the childless King Haremhab. He came from a family of the eastern Delta region and was probably a native of the city of Avaris. Ramses's reign was too short to leave many monuments, although he built a small chapel at Abydos and carved a few reliefs on the back of the second pylon (pyramid gateway) at Al Karnak. His son, Seti I, succeeded him.

      Ramses I

      Egyptian Pharaoh, reigning from 1320 to 1318, founder of the 19th dynasty. Little is known of his specific acts, except that he had been a commander under the former Pharaoh, Haremhab, who is supposed to have chosen him as his successor. Ramses I had the colonnaded hall in the temple at Karnak built.

      Egypt, Rameses I (*0000 - ) - male
      His actual name was 'Men.kheper.re'Ra.messe'. Horemheb, the last Pharoah of the XVII Dynasty, not having an heir of his body, apparently selected Rameses to succeed him (2). Neither of the last two pharoahs of the XVIII Dynasty, Ay and Horemheb, were of direct royal blood and both confirmed their positions by marrying royal heiresses (3). As the succession to Rameses I was fairly smooth, it seems likely that a similar alliance was made or all ready existed for him. Stuart (1) notes the suggestion that he was married to an heiress of the royal family descended from Amenhotep III. He was the first Pharoah of the XIX Dynasty from about 1298 to 1296 BC.

      Rameses I, the founder of the Nineteenth Dynasty, was not of royal blood. He was the son of Sety, a troop commander from the town of Avaris in the eastern Delta; his mother is unknown. During his military service, Rameses I rose in rank, reaching the office of Vizier.
      During Rameses' short, one-year reign, he completed the decoration on the second pylon in Karnak Temple. He undertook building projects at Buhen, a large Egyptian town near the 2nd cataract and in Abydos. For the first time since the reign of Amenhetep III, Rameses re-opened the turquoise mines in Sinai; he also conducted military activities in Asia.
      Rameses I married the daughter of another soldier from the eastern Delta, Sitre. She bore him a son, Sety, who was to become a powerful and influential pharaoh. After his death, Rameses I was buried in KV 16 in the Valley of the Kings. The funerary equipment found there was fashioned in a style reminiscent of Dynasty 18, thereby tying Rameses, the king of non-royal blood, to the great royal rulers of the golden age of Egypt.
