Psamtik I

Psamtik I
(reigned 664–610 BC)
   The Greek form of his name is Psammetichus. Throne name Wahibre. Son of Nekau Iof Sais. Upon his father’s death in battle against Tantamani in 664 BC, he fled to Assyria and was restored as puppet ruler by Assyrian forces in 663 BC, founding Dynasty 26. He skillfully reunited Egypt under his rule with the help of Greek mercenaries and by installing his daughter, Nitocris, as God’s wife of Amunin Thebes. He gradually disentangled himself from Assyrian control and restored Egyptian independence.
