The period of Egyptian History treated of in the present volume begins with the reign of Rameses L, the first king of the XlX thD ynasty, and ends with that of Eameses XII., the last king of the XX thD ynasty, and the narrative describes the principal events which took place in Egypt and the various portions of herN ubian and Asiatic Empire from about B.C. 1400 to B.C. 1130. This period is one of great interest, for in it are included the reigns of Seti L, andE ameses II., andE ameses III., and Menephthah, under which Egypt attained to a very high state of prosperity, and became the mistress of the trade of theE edS ea and of theM editerranean Sea. The country was not given up to the making of military expeditions and raids, as under the great kings of the XVIII thD ynasty, but it has been truly said that the general wealth of the country was greater during the reign of Eameses III. than during that ofT hothmes III., although the hold of Egypt upon herS yrian, Libyan, and Nubian possessions was less strong and less secure.
