The Life and Death of Ramesses II

A great pharaoh indeed..

I would like to add one point: It is not clear in the article when the Kadesh Peace Treaty with the Hittites was signed. In fact, it gives the impression that it was concluded soon after the Battle of Kadesh. In fact, the Kadesh Peace Treaty was concluded 16 years after the Battle of Kadesh, after several more battles and disagreements with the Hittites.

Regarding the Battle of Kadesh, it should be noted that most historians agree it was a botched campaign by Ramses. His army was almost totally routed but he managed to rally his troops and reach a stalemate. Probably explains why - as a new and young pharaoh- he was so eager to cast it as a great victory back home..

I have been doing my own work in this subject and I'm finding things the world dose not know yet. I will release my findings when I find more proof that support my claims and when the time is right for humanity to know the truth.

I would love to hear about your findings, I myself am doing a light research paper on Ramesses and just for my own intrigue and curiosity would absolutely love to hear your thoughts! Please E-mail me [email protected]

Our Mission

At Ancient Origins, we believe that one of the most important fields of knowledge we can pursue as human beings is our beginnings. And while some people may seem content with the story as it stands, our view is that there exists countless mysteries, scientific anomalies and surprising artifacts that have yet to be discovered and explained.

The goal of Ancient Origins is to highlight recent archaeological discoveries, peer-reviewed academic research and evidence, as well as offering alternative viewpoints and explanations of science, archaeology, mythology, religion and history around the globe.

We’re the only Pop Archaeology site combining scientific research with out-of-the-box perspectives.

By bringing together top experts and authors, this archaeology website explores lost civilizations, examines sacred writings, tours ancient places, investigates ancient discoveries and questions mysterious happenings. Our open community is dedicated to digging into the origins of our species on planet earth, and question wherever the discoveries might take us. We seek to retell the story of our beginnings.
