Tantamani


Tantamani
(reigned 664–656 BC)
   Throne name Bakare. Last ruler of Dynasty 25 in Egypt. He succeeded Taharqo and embarked on a reconquest of Egypt, defeating the ruler Nekau I, who was installed by the Assyrians. In 663 BC, the Assyrian army returned and defeated him, marching as far south as Thebes, which was sacked, and appointing Psamtik I as ruler. Tantamani retreated to Nubia but was recognized as ruler in southern Egypt until 657 BC. He died in 656 BC and was buried at el-Kurru.
