The Ancient Egyptians were a blessed kingdom. Very few nations had their ideal position, as they were protected by being united as a people. The deserts protected the flanks of Egypt, While the northern border was protected by the Mediterranean sea.

conflict with nubia
Conflict with Nubia
  • The Egyptians and the Nubians were always at battle against each other. Egypt fought with Nubia for its gold, ivory, ebony and beautiful black hardwood. Around 3000 B.C., Egypt first tried to capture Nubia but failed to do so. The Kerma Culture from Nubia was also at war with Egypt from 1540-1075 B.C. Egypt eventually destroyed the capitol of Kerma. Nubia is now Sudan which is southern Egypt. Egypt and Nubia also fought for the control of the Nile River.
conflict with syria
Conflict with Syria
  • Two major battles happened between Syria and Egypt. The first battle was led by Tuthmosis the 3rd in 1479 B.C. The Egyptians won the battle.
  • The second battle was led by Ramesses the 2nd 1288 B.C. Ramesses tried to break through the Hittite line to the south six times without success until finally the Hittites were forced back to their city where Egyptian troops surrounded them from both sides. Eventually they signed a peace treaty with the Hittites.
conflict with the romans
Conflict with the Romans
  • The final war of the Roman Republic was between Antony and Octavian, which was the last of the Roman civil wars which was fought between Cleopatra (assisted by Mark Antony) and Octavian. After the Romans declared war on the Egyptian queen Cleopatra, Antony, her lover and ally, betrayed the Roman government and joined the war on Cleopatra’s side. After the easy victory for Octavian, Antony and Cleopatra went to a Greek town called Alexandria where both Cleopatra and Antony committed suicide. The Romans valued Egypt very highly because it was so fertile and produced a lot of food such as wheat for bread. The Romans controlled Egypt for about 700 years until the Arabs conquered it.
hyksos invasion
Hyksos Invasion
  • Around 1720-1710 B.C Egypt was being invaded by the Hyksos. The Hyksos ruled Lower Egypt for a little over 100 years. During the Second intermediate period the Hyksos took advantage of the already weakened political structure of Egypt and set up their own kingdoms. They used horses, chariots, body armor and a new type of bronze weapon which Egypt had none of, so the Hyksos people took over Egypt easily. During the period of 1540- 1300 B.C the Egyptians copied the weapons and warfare tactics of the Hyksos to eventually drive them out.
