Thutmose III, king of Egypt (reigned 1479-1425 BC), sometimes called the Napoleon of ancient Egypt. He was the son of Thutmose II and a concubine, and son-in-law of the female pharaoh Hatsehpsut through his marriage to her daughter, his half-sister, by Thutmose II. Succeeding his father in 1479 BC, Thutmose III was overshadowed by Hatshepsut, who became the supreme ruler, giving the young king only a nominal role. After Hatshepsut died in 1458 BC, her monuments were defaced, and an apparent attempt to erase her memory was carried out. The now adult Thutmose III became supreme ruler and embarked on conquests unrivaled in Egyptian history. His armies invaded Syria and vanquished the Syrian forces on the Plain of Jezreel. The Syrians took refuge in the city of Megiddo but were defeated in 1454 BC.
