Whta area did the Pharaohs of Kush rule?

  • social studies -

    Pharaohs from Kush ruled Egypt for almost a century. The rulers from the south encouraged an Egyptian-style culture. They built temples to honor Nubian and Egyptian gods. They dotted the desert with hundreds of tombs. Like earlier pharaohs, they encouraged trade between Africa and the lands around the Mediterranean Sea.

    The rulers from Kush might have remained in power longer if they had been content to govern only Egypt. Instead, they tried to expand their power. They went to war with the Assyrians, skillful warriors who had recently conquered the Fertile Crescent. This error in judgment led to the Nubians’ downfall. Assyrian troops invaded Egypt in 663 b.c. After suffering many losses in battle, the Nubians retreated from Egypt to Kush.
