Menuhotep II

Very little information remains today concerning Menuhotep II. His most enduring monument is his unusual terraced funerary complex at Deir el-Bahri.
During his reign successful campaigns were launched against several Egypt's neighbors and re-established partial control over Nubia.
Menuhotep II is best remembered for his reunification of Egypt by overthrowing the Herakleopolitan 10th Dynasty who were rivals to the earlier 11th Dynasty kings.
