Ever since the Europeans and Arabs invaded Kemet/Africa, over a thousand years ago, they have been fascinated and obsessed with the vast knowledge and heritage which the African continent houses.
For centuries, they have dug up the ancient graves of notable Africans from various empires, kingdoms, and cultures, in a bid to understand how Africa got to be so magnificent in civilization, technology, and culture.
The more they searched, the more they found undeniable evidence which points to the fact that Africa’s civilization predated European and Western civilization. This led many Egyptologists and historians to find ways to discredit the Black/African origin of ancient Egypt (Kemet).
For hundreds of years, they have tried to explain that Egypt was built by aliens, whites, or even giants. But all of these lies meet a water-low when pieces of evidence such as the mummified face of Pharaoh Menmaatre Seti I is put on display.
Archaeologists, Egyptologists, and researchers on ancient Kemet (Egypt) were astonished to see the well-preserved face of Seti I. To date, he is renowned as the most well preserved in all of Ancient Egyptian history, and the world at large.
He died 3,298 years ago and ruled when Egypt was at one of its most affluent peaks – precisely 1290 to 1279 BCE. He was the father of Ramesses II – The greatest pharaoh of all time. When he died, Egyptian Mummification was at its absolute peak of perfection.
Although it is disrespectful to exhume the dead in Africa, the opening of his tomb, by the rebellious researcher Giovanni Battista Belzoni on October 16, 1817, contributed to reducing the arguments which claimed ancient Kemet was white.
Seti I was buried at the Valley of Kings. His tomb is known to be the longest in the ancient cemetery of Noble people of Kemet. His tomb was an astonishing 137 meters (449 ft.). Despite being covered with a yellow garment, tomb raiders desecrated his tomb and dismembered his body, messing up the bandages used in mummification and smashing his abdomen open.
They separated his head from the rest of his body. Fortunately, the raiders did not scar his face. Well, that is what we have been made to know. What is left of his mummified body, is today resting among other Egyptian royal mummies in the Cairo museum.
The Life And Acheivements Of Seti I
Seti is known to be the second Pharaoh of the 19th Dynasty, and many consider him the greatest Pharaoh of the New Kingdom of Kemet.
He was a renowned military man, who followed in the footsteps of his father Ramses I who was married to Queen Sitre. He was very powerful, earning multiple titles, such as troop commander, vizier, and head archer.
He commanded the Egyptian army and went on multiple campaigns and battles, during the reign of his father and subsequently during his own reign.
After his father Ramses I died, he ascended the throne and took the name Menmaatre Seti I, as his official pharaoh name. The name meant “Established is the Justice of Re.”
He would later marry the daughter of one of his military lieutenants, named Tuya. Their marriage produced 4 offsprings. Their 3rd child, Ramses II would later become Pharaoh at around 1279 BC.
It is not fully clear how long Seti I ruled Egypt. The various translations and accounts puts it between 5 to 55 years.
Menmaatre Seti I was the Pharoah who returned Egypt to its lost glory of the 18th dynasty. He led military campaigns into Syria and Libya and expanded the Egyptian empire. He battled the Hittites and kept them from invading Egypt. His army was the first to battle the Hittites.
Before he became Pharaoh, his father, and others before him, had started the restoration of Egypt, from the damages it incurred during the reign of Pharaoh Akhenaten. Egyptians knew Seti I as the “Repeater of Births,” because he focused on bringing the relics of Egypt back to life.
Seti I continued the construction of the great hypostyle hall at Karnak, which was started by his father. The hall at Karnak, to date remains one of the most impressive monuments of the ancient architecture of Kemet.
He went ahead to also build a memorial temple at Abydos, which he dedicated to Osiris, and six other deities. The original colors of this temple still remain till today.
He is often regarded as the most preserved mummy in the world. It really shows.
And let this sink in – HE WAS BLACK – AFRICAN TO THE BONE. Not Caucasian. Not alien. BLACK TO THE BONE.
