Amenhotep III (Amenophis; Amāna-Ḥātpa, "Amun is Satisfied"; Amenhotep the Magnificent) was the 9th pharaoh of the 18th dynasty. His reign was a period of prosperity and splendour, when Egypt reached the peak of her artistic and international power. Amenhotep III was the father of two sons with his Great Royal Wife Tiye, a queen considered the progenitor of monotheism through her first son, Crown Prince Thutmose, and second son, Amenhotep IV (Akhenaten).
