    #napoleon of #ancientegypt & the great #empire of the ancient #pharaoh .
Lots of scholars believes he was the pharaoh of #exodus, due to his reign which is closely the same when #moses was living in egypt .

Detail of a basalt statue of King Thutmose III, who ruled Egypt for 54 years (circa 1479 to 1425 BCE) during the 18th Dynasty. This sculpture is now in the Luxor Museum, Luxor, Egypt. Photo: © Chris Jules "Thutmose's portraits reveal a man with a broad face, steeply sloped forehead, strong jaw, intelligent eyes, and an aquiline nose that is eagle-like in shape and size... [In] ancient Egypt, where the major god Horus was portrayed as a falcon, Thutmose III's subjects would have appreciated the association of Horus's beak with the facial features of their warrior king. Another striking feature in many of Thutmose's portraits is the king's expression of serenity and calm. Even when portrayed at war, the king often seems to be smiling and content, an expression, perhaps, of a man confident in his abilities and satisfied with his own achievements." ― Gabriel, Richard A., Thutmose III: The Military Biography of Egypt's Greatest Warrior King, Potomac Books, Inc., Washington, D.C., USA, 2009.
