Fall of the House of Ramesses Series by Max Overton

Fall of the House of Ramessses cover spread

Egypt was at the height of its powers in the days of Ramesses the Great, a young king who confidently predicted his House would last for a Thousand Years. Sixty years later, he was still on the throne. One by one, his heirs had died and the survivors had become old men. When Ramesses at last died, he left a stagnant kingdom and his throne to an old man–Merenptah. What followed laid the groundwork for a nation ripped apart by civil war.

 

Fall of the House of Ramesses, Book 1: Merenptah 3d cover

Book 1: Merenptah

The House of Ramesses is in the hands of an old man. King Merenptah wants to leave the kingdom to his younger son, Seti, but northern tribes in Egypt rebel and join forces with the Sea Peoples, invading from the north. In the south, the king’s eldest son Messuwy is angered at being passed over in favour of the younger son…and plots to rid himself of his father and brother.

Brilliant story for enthusiasts of the Ramisside era.

A great story by a superb story teller whose books I always enjoy and admire for the depth of his research. Once again he has made history come alive. Can't wait to begin the next volume which I bought today!

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Ancient Egypt Reading

I'm an ancient Egypt history buff. So Merenptah fits nicely. it's enlightening to read that not all Pharohs were nice people. I am looking forward to Book II but not to the decline of the Ramesses II dynesty.

The lead up to the end of a dynamic dynesty

I loved reading this book especially about the legendary Ramesses 11. After such a long reign to read about how the family fell about trying to take power and control and you are almost sitting on the edge of the chair wondering what's going to happen next.

5.0 out of 5 stars HOOKED ON OVERTON'S EGYPT

I have become addicted to the stories by Max Overton. I have been to Egypt touring most of the places he writes about and he "peoples" the locations and time periods in a very plausible way.

So much about war. Not enough about the characters.

Too many descriptions of war that were redundant and not really necessary to the plot.

Fall of the House of Ramesses, Book 2: Seti 3d cover

Book 2: Seti

After only nine years on the throne, Merenptah is dead and his son Seti is king in his place. He rules from the northern city of Men-nefer, while his elder brother Messuwy, convinced the throne is his by right, plots rebellion in the south.

The kingdoms are tipped into bloody civil war, with brother fighting against brother for the throne of a united Egypt. On one side is Messuwy, now crowned as King Amenmesse and his ruthless General Sethi; on the other, young King Seti and his wife Tausret. But other men are weighing up the chances of wresting the throne from both brothers and becoming king in their place. Under the onslaught of conflict, the House of Ramesses begins to crumble…

The House of Ramesses falters as Tausret relinquishes the throne upon the death of her husband, King Seti. Amenmesse’s young son Siptah will become king until her infant son is old enough to rule.

Assassination changes the balance of power, and, seeing his chance, Chancellor Bay attempts a coup…

Tausret’s troubles mount as she also faces a challenge from Setnakhte, an aging son of the Great Ramesses who believes Seti was the last legitimate king. If Setnakhte gets his way, he will destroy the House of Ramesses and set up his own dynasty of kings.
