Rameses became the third king of the 19th Dynasty at the age of 25. His reign is best known for the buildings he commissioned. Early in his reign, he constructed a new capital, Piramesse, in the Nile delta. He built the rock temples of Abu Simbel and his own mortuary temple at Thebes. The tomb of his principal wife Nefertari, also at Thebes, is one of the best-preserved royal tombs

Photographs of Charles Taylor, Rebecca Huger, Rosina Downs, and Augusta Broujey were mass-produced and sold as part of the campaign.
