A map illustrating the state of Egypt at its height during the New Kingdom (c. 1570 - c. 1069 BCE). Also known as the Egyptian Empire, this period began with the reunification of Egypt under Ahmose I (around 1550 BCE) and ended c. 1070 BCE with the gradual dissolution of the state and increased Libyan infiltration. Spanning more than 500 years and well beyond Egypt's core territory, the New Kingdom saw the most powerful (and famous today) pharaohs, such as Ramses II, Thutmose III, Hatshepsut, Akhenaten, and Tutankhamun.
