Dynasty of the Sun
The Old Kingdom
Setep-en-re, "Chosen of Re", is a group that focuses on the final dynasties of the New Kingdom. The 19th and 20th Dynasties of the New Kingdom also produced remarkable kings continuing the “Golden Age of Egypt” already underway.
During Seti I's reign, Egyptian art and culture reached a development and sophistication that was hardly equalled in later centuries. Like Amenhotep III, Seti I initiated the construction of huge building projects. His son, Ramesses II, continued in his father's steps building awesome structures while also securing Egypt's borders. During one such battle to secure the northern border, Ramesses famous battle at Qadash was the first battle to yield the first written peace treaty in all history, with the Hittites.
In this group you will find historical discussion on the royal families of these dynasties, the religion of the era and everyday life, among other topics. You are more than welcome to join us in our discussion of this magnificent age of Egyptian culture.
