Senusret III


Senusret III
(reigned c. 1874–1855 BC)
   Throne name Khakaure. Son of Senusret II and Khenemet-nefer-hedjet. He undertook military expeditions in Nubia, where he strengthened Egyptian fortresses and attacked the town of Shechem in Palestine. He is credited with eliminating the provincial nomarchs who are last attested in his reign. Senusret III was buried in a pyramid at Dahshur, which was recently excavated by the Metropolitan Museum of Art. His military activities were later confused with those of Ramesses II to form the deeds of conquest of a mythical King Sesostris. His principal wife was Khenemet-nefer-hedjet the younger.
