Shebaka was the first king of the Twenty-fifth Dynasty. During his reign, he undertook some
building projects. The Fourth Pylon at Karnak has an inscription that tells of Shebaka's
restoration of the gate. He also started work on the second pylon in front of the temple of
Thutmose III at Medinet Habu. Shebaka's sister, Amunirdis I held a position that was very
important politically as well as religiously. She was called "god's wife of Amun" at Thebes. Her
funerary temple was at Medinet Habu and was in front of the temple of Ramesses III.
