Mehy served during the reign of Seti I.
What his position was is still a mystery. Many of his
reliefs and images were damaged by Ramesses II,
who was Seti's successor. Mehy was obviously a warrior
and was normally shown in princely attire and was on many
war reliefs. Even some of the romantic songs of the era
talk of Mehy as a romantic hero. Mehy was a commoner
according to some records and that he was a favorite of
Seti. Either way, he was hated by Ramesses II.
