  • Pharaoh of Egypt - Dates: 1213 bce–1203 bce


Merneptah (occasionally: Merenptah) was the fourth ruler of the 19th Dynasty of Ancient Egypt. He reigned Egypt for almost 10 years between late July/early August 1213 to May 2 1203 BC according to the contemporary historical records.[2] He was the thirteenth son of Ramesses II[3] and only came to power because all his older brothers had predeceased him, by which time he was almost sixty years old. His throne name was Ba-en-re Mery-netjeru, which means "The Soul of Ra, Beloved of the Gods".

Merneptah was probably the fourth child of Ramesses II's second wife, Istnofret (Isisnofret). He was married to queen Istnofret (Isisnofret), who must have been his sister, and possibly also to a queen Takhat. One of his sons with Istnofret was Seti-Merneptah, who probably became later pharaoh as Seti II.
