Salitis in Tour Egypt SALITIS 15TH DYNASTY - Salitis was the 1st king of the 15th Dynasty. Northern Egypt was under Heksus rulers throughout the Dynasty. The Heksus are the Asiatics that invaded through Sinai and settled in the Delta. The Heksus controlled all the Nile Delta and Northern Egypt. By time, they got more powerful and set their own Dynasties ( from the 14th till the end of the 16th Dynasty). Some scholars mentione Salitis's name as "Sultan". This is an Arabic translation of the phrase 'powerful king' because the king was considered to be the founder of the Great Heksus Dynasty. Salitis captured Memphis and placed himself in higher rank than any of the royal families in the Capitol.

Salitis in Wikipedia Salitis was the first pharaoh of the Hyksos Fifteenth dynasty of Egypt, who began to rule Egypt around 1648 BC. The precise dates of his rule are unknown. Northern Egypt was controlled by Hyksos rulers throughout the Dynasty. The Hyksos were people of Semitic origin who were thought to have invaded Egypt through the Sinai Peninsula and settled in the Delta. Other scholars regard this as propaganda and instead consider that the Hyksos were elements of the local Semitic population of Lower Egypt who assumed control of lower Egypt when the 13th dynasty of Egypt collapsed. The Hyksos controlled all the Nile Delta and Northern Egypt.[1] Some scholars mention Salitis' name as "Sultan". This is an Arabic translation of the phrase 'powerful king' because the king was considered to be the founder of the first Hyksos dynasty. Salitis captured Memphis and placed himself in higher rank than any of the royal families in the city.
