Building And Military Program Of Seti

889 words - 4 pages

Seti IAlthough he only ruled for 11 years, according to Cottrell Seti I must be regarded "as one of the greatest of the Warrior Pharaohs". He obtained much distinction as a soldier and administrator, and even dated the years of his reign as renaissance. Kitchin claims Seti's overriding aim was the renewal of Egypt through following the examples of Thutmose III and Amenhotep III, and his throne name 'Men-ma-re' was a cross between these great kings. As a man of military upbringing, he hoped to restore those areas of Syria which had been part of the Egyptian area by following the strategy of Thutmose III. Similarly, he also wished to equal the magnificent buildings of Amenhotep III.MilitarySeti's military campaigns are celebrated in reliefs on the walls of the Hypostyle Hall at Karnak. They show his prowess in battle and give some details of his moves in Syria; however a clear chronological picture is not evident. His ultimate objective was to conquer the lands of Kadesh and Amurru.

With control of the Phoenician coastline, he was now prepared to launch an attack against Kadesh and Amurru.Seti's plans were, according to Kitchin, temporarily interrupted by a threat from the Libyans from the west. However, he dealt with them so effectively the were not a serious threat from another 115 years. In year 5 or 6 he launched his campaign, with reliefs in the Temple of Amun showing a storming of Kadesh. For this victory Seti honoured the traditional gods Seth, Amun and Montu by erecting a stela inside the city. He was the first pharaoh in over 100 years to bring Kadesh under Egyptian control. However, the Hittite king, Muwatallis, still proved a source of opposition, and it appears that Seti may have signed a peace treaty with the Hittites. Although there is no record of this, it is believed Seti agreed to halt further attacks on Kadesh and Amurru in...
