Biography of King of Egipto Apofis o Aaqenenre (ca. 1594 a.C.)

(Ipp or Ippi) Fourth or fifth King probably the 15th dynasty Egyptian (hics), called Apophis by Manetho, and successor of Khyam. According to real Papyrus in Turin, he reigned for 40 years, and he was recognized throughout the country as it can be seen from the numerous escarabeos, one very beautiful in the Metropolitan Museum of New York, and other remains found (a threshold of limestone with its name, located in Gebelein, and a palette that gave the own Apofis scribe Atu, found in the Fayum and today conserved in Berlin). In the tomb of Amenhotep I, of the XVIII dynasty, the fragment of a vase of Alabaster Apofis name and one of his daughters, was located the Herti Princess, perhaps married to some component of a Theban Royal family. Worthy of pointed out is the date of his thirty-third year of reign, moment in which the famous mathematical Papyrus was composed Rhind, preserved in the British Museum. Apofis personality was complex, since monuments displays its name of Crest (neswt bity) written in different ways: Aaqenenre, Nebkhepeshre and Aauserre. Some Egyptologists argue that they belong to three different Apofis, but trends are the assimilate them all in a single Apofis. The longest text that has been preserved of this King hicso was discovered in Almuñecar (Granada), in which also cited the name of his sister, the Princess Tjarudjet. Apofis Horus name was Seheteptauy, testified in two fragments of a monumental inscription of Bubastis and a table of offerings of Avaris. Your titulatura appears on the two colossal statues of Mermesha, about four Sphinxes and a dagger. The last years of his reign were altered by the confrontation with the Egyptians (struggles against Kamose and Seqenenre Taa), as we can deduce from a literary dispute (complaint of Apopi and Seqenenre). Apofis happened Khamudy.
