To die in defense of your kingdom,
is there any greater accomplishment?
Protecting Egypt from the Hyksos,
and leaving behind a wife and sons.
Your name is often forgotten
among the pages of history.
But the legacy you left behind
and the future you gave Egypt is not.
Your wife, Ahhotep I, was a great queen.
She protected Egypt in your absence.
She raised two future pharaohs,
and she fortified Thebes from her enemies.
Your son Kamose made the same choice,
dying early in his reign,
and leaving his younger brother and his mother
to protect Egypt and her people.
And then your son Ahmose I
rose to be a great king,
defeating the Hyksos invaders,
and destroying their forts and capital.
You deserve great honor
for the part you played,
and the price of your life
which you so dearly paid.
Honor to your name,
Pharaoh Seqenenre Tao,
King of Southern Egypt,
rebel against the Hyksos.
