Episode #103
The Last Great Pharaoh
The last hour tells the story of Ramses the Great who resurrected the Egyptian empire. His reign was the high point in the life of the New Kingdom but also was the precursor of its ruin and destruction. He embarked on the most ambitious building program the world had ever seen. His master craftsmen were responsible for the remarkable tomb-building in the Valley of the Kings and the most beautiful tomb, which was built for Ramses' chief wife, Nefetari. The world of Ramses II was the high point of Egyptian civilization. All pharaohs who came after him tried to recapture his greatness, none could. With Ramses XI, Egypt's Golden Empire was over. A mysterious warlike people, the Sea Peoples, began attacking Egypt's allies and colonies. At home, the people were starving. The craftsmen began to rob and desecrate the very tombs they had built. In a last desperate act, the bodies of 40 pharaohs were moved and placed in a secret cave where they would lie undiscovered for 3,000 years.

Pharaohs of The Sun
During the reign of Amenhotep III, Egypt was the center for culture and learning in the ancient world. Egypt had reached dizzying heights, but it stood on the brink of a devastating fall. Amenhotep III's son and successor, Amenophis IV, took the throne by storm, changed his name to Akhenaten and announced that the old gods of Egypt were dead. He moved his entire court and thousands of followers to the new capital city of Armana. By his side was Queen Nefertiti. Obsessed by his new religion, he lost sight of the empire. When Nefertiti died, his world fell apart. Akhenaten's successor, Tutankhamun, was only 10 years old when he took the throne. By the time he was 19, all traces of Akhenaten and Nefertiti had been erased. With his death came the end of the great dynasty of the empire builders.
