Mummy of Ahmose 1.

King of Ancient Egypt 1550-1525 BCE, 25 years, founder of the 18th Dynasty.
With Ahmose 1, the Hyksos were beaten, as he took control over the citadel in their capital, Avaris, in the north of Egypt.
To Ahmose, at Abydos, the southernmost pyramid of Egypt is found, although what remains today is little but a mound. The pyramid did not serve the same purpose as older, more original pyramids, as Ahmose was buried in an underground chamber, cenotaph, 550 metres uphill.
