Horemheb

Horemheb, or Dejserkheprure, was the last king of the famous 18th dynasty. Horemheb means “Horus is in festival.” Horemheb claimed to be a nome aristocrat. Tutankhamen made him the chief of his army, and he was once an escort for the young king on one expedition.

Horemheb because pharaoh after Tutnakhamen and Aye died. He married Mutjodjmet, who was somehow related to royalty and could have been Nefertiti’s sister. He rebuilt shrines, restored land to priests, and moved the capital back to Memphis. While he dated his reign to the death of Amenhotep III, erasing Akhenaten through Aye, he also restored the tombs of Tuthmosis IV and Tutankhamen, which had been robbed. Horemheb died without an heir, and he appointed a military guy named Ramesses to succeed him… Thus ended the 18th dynasty.
