Aspects of the Reign of Ramesses IV

by Sullivan, Peter

Abstract (Summary)
This thesis comprises a discussion of aspects of the reign of Ramesses IV including a calculation of the absolute date of his reign, his early career as a Royal Prince, his accession to the throne, and the background to the end of the reign of Ramesses III. The areas discussed then continue with an attempt to create a chronological study of the period based on a new approach to dating monuments, a reconstruction of the events of his reign, his death and burial, his domestic secular and religious policy and his foreign policy. A summary of the results derived in all these areas closes the text.
