SETI I 1290-1279 BC.


Seti I was the second Pharaoh of the 19th Dynasty of Ancient Egypt. The length of his reign varies from source to source although the above dates are generally considered to be accepted by most.

Examination of Seti’s extremely well-preserved mummy provided some insight as to how he died. His heart was found on the right side of his chest instead of the usual left placing. This indicates that he may have been suffering from an illness that affected his heart and embalmers placed his heart on the right-hand side so it would work better for him in the afterlife.

One of Seti’s first priorities was reestablishing the old religion and social norms that the reign of Akhenaten had changed so drastically.

Scholars believe that Seti’s greatest achievement during his reign was capturing the city of Kadesh from the Hittites. Something that Tutankhamun and Horemheb had failed to do.

Seti died around the age of 40. He had named his son Ramesses II as his heir who enjoyed the longest confirmed reign of any Pharaoh and died at the age of 90.
