Amenhotep I (Amenophis I) (about 1525-1504 BC)
Second king of the Eighteenth Dynasty. In many respects he completed the work of Ahmose in redeveloping the country. A campaign against Nubia is attested. The building activity of the king concentrated on Thebes (calcite shrine in Karnak), but is also attested at other places such as Abydos and Elkab.
