Egyptian pharaoh of the 18th dynasty (reigned ca. 1504 - 1450 BC) Thutmose III emerged as the sole ruler of Egypt and as a great conqueror after the death of Hatshesput. According to the stele of Thutmose III, over 350 cities fell to the Egyptians under his rule. There is little doubt that his numerous campaigns were extremely successful. He has in fact been referred to as the "Napoleon of ancient Egypt" because of his military expansion.

Thutmose III was the sixth Pharaoh of the Eighteenth Dynasty. During the first twenty-two years of Thutmose's reign he was co-regent with his stepmother, Hatshepsut, who was named the pharaoh.
