Egypt`s 18th Dynasty that established the new kingdom is to most people interested in Egypt a dynasty of stars it is the dynasty of tutankhamum who was a fairly minor king but perhaps the best known of any of the pharaohs it was also the dynasty of the known akhenaten and of queen hatshepsut.
The founder of this Dynasty is less well known to the general public but unquestionably of major importance to Egyptian history . He was Ahmose I during who`s reign Egypt was finally and completely liberated from the Hyksos various scholars attribute different dates to his reign but he probably became ruler of Egypt around 1550 BC at the age before his death (examination of his well preserved mummysuggest he was about 35 when he died).
