The period of Egyptian History treated in the present volume begins with the reign of Nes-ba-T ettet, the first king of the XXI stD ynasty from Tanis, and ends with that of Psammetichus 11., the third king of the XXYI thD ynasty, and the narrative describes the principal events which took place in -E gypt and the various portions of herE mpire from about B.C. 1100 to B.C. 600. It includes the reigns of a number of kings under whose rule the power of Egypt declined and herE mpire shrank, and in whose time the various hereditary foes of Egypt succeeded in obtaining their independence. In spite of this, however, we find that theN orthern kingdom of Egypt made itself very powerful, and it is interesting to note how this came to pass, viz., by the aid of foreign soldiers and sailors. With the close of the XXY thD ynasty theN ewE mpire came to an end, and the period of Egyptian Kenaissance began. Under Shashanq I. the feeble kingdoms of theS outh and North were once more united, and a Libyan monarch occupied the throne of the Pharaohs.
