This chapter chronicles the reigns of Rameses IV to XI, as well as the start of the Twenty-first Dynasty. The reigns of the latter generations of Rameses were beset with much misfortune, from short reigns to economic instability to external conflict. Enter Herihor, a high priest of Amun who would apparently become Rameses XI's successor in the south. His transition to kingship resulted in his high priesthood passing to a new man: Panedjem I, a son of the former pontiff-viceroy Piankh. Panedjem I would later become king himself, and would later be succeeded by his son, Pasebkhanut I; Pasebkhanut and his brother Menkheperre would between them rule Egypt for nearly half a century.

Keywords:   Twentieth Dynasty, Twenty-first Dynasty, Ramesides, Herihor, Panedjem I, Pasebkhanut I, Menkheperre
