Menehptre was the pharaoh of Ancient Egypt and the father of Ahmanet. He promised his daughter that she would succeed him as pharaoh. However, when he bore a son with his second wife, he took back his promise to Ahmanet, which caused her to assassinate him.


Ahmanet's Birth

5000 years before 2017, Menehptre was the king of Ancient Egypt. Menehptre and his wife would eventually become the parents of a daughter, who they named Ahmanet. However, his wife died as a result of giving birth to Ahmanet.[1]


When Ahmanet had grown old enough, Menehptre told her that she would eventually succeed him as queen upon his death. However, Menehptre's second wife would give birth to a son in 2983 B.C., which would leave Ahmanet, a woman, unable to claim the throne upon Menehptre's death. A vengeful Ahmanet sought revenge.[1]

Assassination of Menehptre

Menehptre is assassinated.

Ahmanet summoned the Egyptian god of death, Set, and promised him the body of a mortal man to inhabit so that they may rule together as king and queen. She snuck into her father's room while he was sleeping. Ahmanet murdered Menehptre first, by slitting his throat. Ahmanet would kill her stepmother and her younger brother as well.[1]


As Ahmanet prepared to sacrifice her lover to Set, the temple priests caught Ahmanet in the act, killed her lover, and mummified her alive, leaving her for dead for 5000 years.[1]
