Amenophis II (Son of Thutmose-III)
Amenophis II (Son of Thutmose-III)
Was this the Pharaoh of the Exodus?

This painting depicts a granite statue of an Egyptian king who has been identified as Amenophis II, son of Thutmose-III.

Amenhotep II

This statue of Amenophis II also known as Amenhotep II is important in the study of Biblical Archaeology because many scholars believe that the most evidence points to him as being the Pharaoh of the Exodus.

There are two main opinions among scholars as to who the Pharaoh was during the time of the Exodus in Egypt by the Hebrews. Amenhotep II (1427-1392 B.C.), and Rameses II (1279 - 1213 B.C.).

Amenophis II: Amenhotep II was also known as Amenophis II and he was the son of Thutmose III. If Moses led the children of Israel out of Egypt during the reign of Amenophis II, then the main oppressor of Israel would have been his father Thutmose III who was also the greatest conqueror in Egyptian history. His sister Queen Hatshepsut would have rescued Moses and brought him up. 

Rameses II: If the Exodus from Egypt happened during the reign of Rameses II, then his father Seti I would have been the main oppressor of Israel.

Possible Chronology

1 Kings 6:1 "And it came to pass in the 480th year after the children of Israel were come out of the land of Egypt, in the 4th year of Solomon's reign over Israel, in the month Zif, which [is] the second month, that he began to build the house of the LORD."

966 B.C. - Solomon's 4th Year

Go back 480 Years

1445 B.C -  Exodus took place

1445 B.C. - Would have been the 3rd year of Amenhotep II

More evidence:

- According to Acts 7:23 Moses was in Midian for 40 years. Amenhotep's father Thutmose III is the only pharaoh who reigned for so long a time (54 years) to have been ruling in Egypt when Moses left, and still ruling just before Moses returned. This would put Amenhotep II as the pharaoh of the Exodus.

- According to the "Merenptah Stele" inscription the ancient Israelites already occupied the land of Canaan during his reign (1213-1203 BC).

- According to historical sources Amenhotep II did not carry out extensive military campaigns like his father Thutmose III. This brings up the possibility that his army was weakened.

- According to the "Dream Stele" inscription Thutmose IV was not the firstborn son of his father Amenhotep II. This brings up the possibility that his firstborn died as mentioned in the Bible.

- The idea of monotheism was introduced by Amenhotep II's son Thutmose IV and later called the cult of Aton under his grandson Amenhotep IV (Akhnaton).


Exodus 5:2 - And Pharaoh said, Who [is] the LORD, that I should obey his voice to let Israel go? I know not the LORD, neither will I let Israel go.

Exodus 12:29 - And it came to pass, that at midnight the LORD smote all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, from the firstborn of Pharaoh that sat on his throne unto the firstborn of the captive that was in the dungeon; and all the firstborn of cattle.

Amenophis II in Wikipedia
Amenhotep II (sometimes read as Amenophis II and meaning Amun is Satisfied) was the seventh Pharaoh of the 18th dynasty of Egypt. Amenhotep inherited a vast kingdom from his father Thutmose III, and held it by means of a few military campaigns in Syria; however, he fought much less than his father, and his reign saw the effective cessation of hostilities between Egypt and Mitanni, the major kingdoms vying for power in Syria. His reign is usually dated from 1427 to 1400 BC. (Wikipedia)

Early Life
Amenhotep II was the son of Thutmose III and a minor wife of the king: Merytre-Hatshepsut. He was not, however, the firstborn son of this pharaoh; his elder brother Amenemhat, the son of the great king's chief wife Satiah, was originally the intended heir to the throne since Amenemhat was designated the 'king's eldest son" and overseer of the cattle of Amun in Year 24 of Thutmose's reign.[2] However, between Years 24 and 35 of Thutmose III, both queen Satiah and prince Amenemhat died, which prompted the pharaoh to marry the non-royal Merytre-Hatshepsut.[3] She would bear Thutmose III a number of children including the future Amenhotep II. Amenhotep II was born and raised in Memphis in the north, instead of in Thebes, the traditional capital.[4] While a prince, he oversaw deliveries of wood sent to the dockyard of Peru-nūfe in Memphis, and was made the Setem, the high priest over Lower Egypt.[4] Amenhotep has left several inscriptions touting his athletic skills while he was a leader of the army before his crowning. Amenhotep was no less athletic than his powerful father. He claims to have been able to shoot an arrow through a copper target one palm thick, and that he was able to row his ship faster and farther than two hundred members of the navy could row theirs.[4] Accordingly some skepticism concerning the truth of his claims has been expressed among Egyptologists.[4]

Amenhotep acceded to the throne on the first day of the fourth month of Akhet, but his father died on the thirtieth day of the third month of Peret.[5] If an Egyptian crown prince was proclaimed king but did not take the throne on the day after his father's death, it meant that he served as the junior coregent during his father's reign. A coregency with Thutmose III and Amenhotep II is believed to have lasted for two years and four months.[6]

When he assumed power, Amenhotep II was 18 years old according to an inscription from his great Sphinx stela:
"Now his Majesty appeared as king as a fine youth after he had become 'well developed', and had completed eighteen years in his strength and bravery."[7]
After becoming pharaoh, Amenhotep married a woman of uncertain parentage named Tiaa.[8] As many as ten sons and one daughter have been attributed to him. Amenhotep's most important son was Thutmose IV, who succeeded him; however, there is significant evidence for him having many more children. Princes Amenhotep, Webensenu, Amenemopet, and Nedjem are all clearly attested, and Amenemhat, Khaemwaset, and Aakheperure as well as a daughter, Iaret, are also possible children.

Papyrus B.M. 10056, which dates to sometime after Amenhotep II's tenth year, refers to a king's son and setem-priest Amenhotep.[9] This Amenhotep might also be attested in a stele from Amenhotep II's temple at Giza,[10] however the stele's name has been defaced so that positive identification is impossible.[11] Stele B may belong to another son, Webensenu.[11] Webensenu's name is otherwise attested on a statue of Amenhotep's chief architect, Minmose, and his canopic jars and a funerary statue have been found in Amenhotep II's tomb.[12] Another Giza stele, stele C, records the name of a Prince Amenemopet, whose name is otherwise unattested.[11] The same statue with the name Webensenu on it is also inscribed with the name of prince Nedjem, who is otherwise unattested.[12]

There are other references to king's sons from this period who may or may not be sons of Amenhotep II. Two graffiti from Sahel mention a king's son and stable master named Khaemwaset, but specifically which king is his father is unknown.[11] A figure with the name Amenemhet is recorded behind a prince Amenhotep in Theban tomb 64, and assuming this Amenhotep is indeed the king's son from B.M. 10056, Amenemhat would also be Amenhotep II's son.[13] Additionally, a prince Aakheperure is mentioned in a Konosso graffito alongside a prince Amenhotep, and if one again assumes that this Amenhotep was the same person as the one in B.M. 10056, Aakheperure would also have been Amenhotep II's son. However, in both these cases the figure identified as Amenhotep has been identified by some as possible references to the later King Amenhotep III, which would make these two princes sons Thutmose IV.[10] In addition to sons, Amenhotep II may have had a daughter named Iaret, but she could have also been the daughter of Thutmose IV.[11]

Two more sons had been attributed to Amenhotep II in the past, however, they have since been proven to be of other parentage. Gauthier catalogued one Usersatet, the "King's son of Kush," (i.e. Viceroy of Nubia) as a son of Amenhotep II, as well as one Re, however, both are now known to be unrelated to the royal family.[14] Usersatet merely served as Amenhotep's chief official in Nubia and was not a blood relative of the king. [Wikipedia]


Amenhotep was the name of four Egyptian pharaohs of the 18th dynasty; Greek name Amenophis. Amenhotep II (15th century bc), son of Tuthmosis III, reigned 14501425. [Oxford Dictionary]

Amenhotep II Aahheperuru (1427-1400 ik;) was the seventh ruler of the 1 8th Dynasty and eoregenl and successor to his father, tiii.t- \Kist: in (1479-1425 BC). He was born at MEMPHIS, bis mother being Queen Meritra- Hatshcpsut. The surviving reliefs and texts give the impression that he prided himself on his physical prowess, although it is equally possible that a new heroic image of the kingsi up was simply being adopted. Emulating the military successes of his father, he undertook three campaigns into SYRIA, bul no military activity seems to have been considered necessary m Nubia, where he appointed Usersatet as viceroy oi' kusii and ordered various projects of temple construction and decoration at Amada and KALA&SH&. He built a number of shrines and temples in the region of THEBES, including structures at KARNAK, medamud and TOD. Little has survived of his mortuary temple at Thebes, but he was buried in Tomb kv35 in the Valley of the Kings. The decoration of this tomb, although unfinished, included a complete version of the book of Amduat (see funerary TEXTS). When it was excavated by Victor Loret in 1898 it was found to contain not only Amenhotep IIs mummy (still in his sarcophagus) but the bodies of eight other pharaohs (Thutmose IV, Amenhotep III, MERENPTAH, SETI II, Saptah, RAMESES iv, v and vi), three women (one of whom may be Queen tiy) and a young boy. These mummies were all brought to Amenhotep IIs tomb, on the orders ol Pinudjem (one of the chief priests of Amun at Thebes in the 21st Dynasty), in order to preserve them from the depredations of tombrobbers.
