The 25th dynasty of Egypt dates back to 746 to 653 BC. This was also the dynasty known as the “Kings of Kush.” The Kingdom of Kush was an ancient African kingdom that flowed along what is now the Republic of Sudan.
The Kings of Kush ruled as Pharaohs and believed that they were the bodily sons of the God Amun. They also worked to reunite the ancient original domain of Amun, with Egypt in the north and Nubia in the south.
The Kings of Kush were held as guardians of the state religion and were responsible for maintaining the houses of the gods. The 25th dynasty was a pivotal period for Renaissance culture in Egypt. Pyramids were constructed along the Nile and the old world style of Egyptian art was restored.
