Prenomen: Neferkare
Nomen: Shabaka
(about 715/713-700/698 BC)

Son of Kashta and brother of Piye. His name can also be written as Shabaqa or Shabako.

His rule was the Golden Age for the Nubian domination of Egypt. Throughout his reign Shabaka made many additions to Egyptian temples, such as those at Memphis, Abydos and Esna. After suppressing a last revolt of northern princes under Bakenrenef’s lead, he’s supposed to have burned the king at a stake (according to Manetho). Since then he ruled over entire Egypt. Face to face with the still growing power of the Assyrians, he seems to have followed the policy of his predecessors, which was mainly based upon intrigues and making political alliances. Pharaoh Shabaka is supposed to have handed Yamani, the exiled king of Ashdod, over to the Assyrians. He also appointed his son Horemakhet as High Priest of Amon at Thebes, although the real power in that region seems to have been in the hands of Shabaka’s sister Amenirdis I, whose mortuary temple and tomb are at Medinet Habu. (Text by Bart v. A.)
