Ahmose II

(reigned 570–526 BC)
   The Greek form of his name is Amasis. Throne name Khnumibre. A military commander of Wahibre (Apries), whom he overthrew following a brief civil war. He sought to ally Egypt with the Greeks to face the continuing threat of Persia, including a marriage alliance with Laodike, a Greek lady from Cyrene. Ahmose II ruled effectively for 45 years and died conveniently just before the Persian invasion of 525 BC, as a result of which his son, Psamtik III, was deposed and later executed.
