Egypt: Rulers, Kings and Pharaohs of Ancient Egypt: Khamudi


15th Dynasty

Khamudi was the last king of the 15th Dynasty and was the last king of the "Great Heksus". The king was listed in the Turin Canon. Khamudi's Obelisk was discovered near the ancient city of Avaris. The king was responsible for negotiation of the Hiksus army's withdrawal from Avaris and most of the Delta. Khamudi was pressured to withdraw due to the successful campaign of Ahmose I's army on his capitol. However, the southern Pharaohs did not keep their agreement and pushed the Heksus out of Egypt and raided their cities in the Middle East for several years by the Theben kings of the 18th Dynasty.
