Refusing to acknowledge the previous two pharaohs, the first king of the 20th Dynasty dated
the beginning of his reign to that of Seti II. He probably usurped the throne from Tworse, Seti
IIs widow, and later queen-pharaoh. He was at an advanced age when he took the throne
but managed to accomplish peace and order in a short period of time. His tomb was not
completed when he died so he was placed in that Tworses. His coffin was found in
Amenophis II's tomb but his mummy has not been found. Setakht was the father of Ramesses
III and the husband of Ramesses' mother, Tiye-merenese.
