Who's Who of Egyptian people, queens and family: Mehy


19th Dynasty

Mehy served during the reign of Seti I. What his position was is still a mystery. Many of his reliefs and images were damaged by Ramesses II, who was Seti's successor. Mehy was obviously a warrior and was normally shown in princely attire and was on many war reliefs. Even some of the romantic songs of the era talk of Mehy as a romantic hero. Mehy was a commoner according to some records and that he was a favorite of Seti. Either way, he was hated by Ramesses II.
