Rameses I I: The Last Great Pharaoh Rameses I I (also commonly spelled Ramesses I I or Ramses I I) was the third pharaoh of the 19th Dynasty, son of pharaoh Seti I, and grandson of pharaoh Rameses I. He ruled for approximately 66 years in the middle of a period known as the New Kingdom when Egypt was most powerful. During his reign from 1279-1213 BC, Egypt enjoyed an era of prosperity and stability, not only internally, but externally as well. He is responsible for the building of more monuments and famous structures than any other pharaoh, having many structures and statues renamed as if he commissioned them himself. By the end of his unusually long reign, he was famous throughout the ancient world and considered by many to be the last great pharaoh.

In my opinion, his most important contribution was the creation of the Museum, which was a common workplace for scholars and artists and established the library at Alexandria. The Museum was one of the seven wonders of the old world.
