Horemheb much earlier than Tirhakah




A Reader Has Commented:


.... some [Velikovskians] .... will not be delighted at your insistence that Amenhotep III and Haremhab are within one generation, ie that of Huy.

For my part I’m now concerned over the Ethiopian Venture by Tutankhamun. Under my chronology Tutankhamun has to be within the incoming Ethiopian invasion period as both re-instated the worship of Amun after a break.

Have you considered that the Nubian / Ethiopian venture might not be an instigation by Egypt but something of a different sort?

Your links of Haremhab and Tutankhamun seem to be correct as far as my research goes,

Further though, Do you see Haremhab as a contemporary of Taharka?

Best Wishes

Damien Mackey's Response:

....

I see Horemheb [Haremhab] as his perfect biblical counterpart in type (both reigning for 28 years), king Jehu, chariot riding, red-necked, proud, law enforcing administrator, who was nevertheless very just and fair to the poor.
He was the chosen instrument for the destruction of Baalism in Syro-Palestine and of Atonism (Adonai-ism) - same meaning 'Lord' as Baal - in Egypt. This paganism had Indo-European (Vedic) MItannian roots.
He was the same as the soldier-administrator Iaanhamu of EA, Velikovsky's Naaman, a convert to Yahwism but highly ambivalent religiously (bowing to Syria's god, Rimmon).

A great military man, he was even more an administrator. Hence the possibility of his being the sage and administrator, Amenhotep Hapu or Huy (who was in turn a campaigner militarily into Nubia). As Nubian campaigner, he was Amenhotep Huy, king's son of Kush. Tutankhamun's very general Hui (= Jehu/).

But he (as Jehu) was the understudy to the even greater Hazael, whose dirty work he did - though Hazael tended to get the praise. Just as Horemheb, though great, was subordinate to Ay (= Aziru/Hazael).

This pair completely wiped out the Ahab/Jezebel connection in Syro-Palestine, which was the same as the Akhnaton/Nefertiti connection in Egypt.

This was all well before (about a century?) the 25th dynasty of the Nubian Tirhakah.
However, the 25th dynasty revived the earlier 19th dynasty (of which Horemheb was the founder) values. Hence Tirhakah's great respect and homage paid to the long-deceased Horemheb.

Best wishes
Damien.
