The reign of Ramesses III, the second pharaoh in Egypt’s 20th dynasty, was not the most stable chapter in the empire’s history. There were endless wars with the “Sea Peoples”, which drained the treasury, bad weather that interrupted food supplies, along with political unrest. All this led to a successful murder plot against Ramesses III in 1155 B.C. Now, new CT scans of Ramesses III’s mummy are shedding more light on how this god-king met his end.
