Siptah (Sapath) (about 1194/93-1186/85 BC)

King of the late Nineteenth Dynasty. There continues to be much debate over the exact sequence of events in the late Nineteenth Dynasty, after the reign of Merenptah: fragmentary or scattered manuscripts and inscriptions provide inconclusive evidence for the relations between Amenmesse, Sety II, queen Tawesret and Siptah.
