This compelling narrative provides the only comprehensive guide in English to the rise and decline of Ptolemaic rule in Egypt over three centuries - from the death of Alexander in 323 BC to the tragic deaths of Antony and Cleopatra in 30 BC. The skilful integration of material from a vast array of sources allows the reader to trace the political and religious development of one of the most powerful empires of the ancient eastern Mediterranean. It shows how the success of the Ptolemies was due in part to their adoption of many features of the Egyptian Pharaohs who preceded them - their deification and funding of cults and temples throughout Egypt.

MENKHPERE Pharaoh Menkheperre Thutmose, who preferred to be called Menperre, was the sixth pharaoh of the eighteenth dynasty of ancient Egypt and was the pharaoh who won a vast empire for ancient Egypt. With his queen, Merytre Hatshepsut, daughter of Pharaoh Makere Hatshepsut, this man and womans romance is probably the greatest love story of the ancient world. It seems three different minds bedeviled him throughout his life. Not fearing being killed, nor those resulting in the deaths of his soldiers or enemies, simply because he believed his destiny, was to conquer an empire for Egyptwhich he did achieve. A man, who at times, was consumed by intense hatred, particularly of Senmut and King Solomon. A desire for revenge which at times drove him mad. Yet he was capable of great love, tenderness, and kindness to his wives and family, providing a supreme atmosphere of family life enjoyed by everyone. It is time this great romance is known to the world. This book, though offered in a fictionalized form, is factually correct in every aspect. Enjoy the peculiarities of Menkheperre Thutmose, which has never been told before. But enjoy how his love for his wives transcends all else. ROYSTON MOORE

Christian Jacq, author of the international triumphs Ramses and The Stone of Light, brings the people and passions of ancient Egypt to life in an enthralling epic novel in three volumes. Egypt is a shadow of its former self. An army of barbarians mounted on horse-drawn chariots has swept through the Empire, destroying everything in its path. Known as the Hyksos, these "leaders from foreign lands" have reduced the country of the pharaohs to slavery. Only the city of Thebes resists, protected by the widow of the last pharaoh, Teti the Small. But Teti knows that her reign is limited, that it's only a matter of time before her men succumb to the barbarities of the cruel Hyksos. She has an eighteen-year-old daughter, however: Ahhotep. Fierce, beautiful, and courageous, this girl whom history will call "Egypt's Joan of Arc" will never accept defeat. And so she decides to re-ignite the flame of Egyptian resistance. All by herself. Combining historical fact with a vivid imagination, Christian Jacq tells the enthralling true story of this Ancient Egyptian warrior-heroine. Without the courage and passion of Queen Ahhotep, the Valley of the Kings and the glorious treasures of the pharaohs, including Ramses the Great, would never have existed.
