Egyptian Pharaohs : Ramesside Period : Dynasty 20 : Ramesses IX (442 words)
Ramesses XI ruled from Tanis in the Delta and during his reign it appears that priests of the Temple of Amun in Thebes took control of that region.
Ramesses was not a very energetic ruler, and often sent his generals or viceroys to manage troubled areas in Egypt.
Ramesses XI's tomb was not finished, and may have been used for storage or a workshop where some of the older mummies were moved during the end of the 20th Dynasty, when the vandalizing of the tombs was at its height.
