A correction
Wed Feb 1, 2017 16:36

Dear Tory,

I feel the need to make a correction.

I wrote: " - Menkheperre, dies aged 62;"

Actually, on Post 17263 (last time you updated us on your dates for individuals of early 21st Dynasty), you have Menkheperre dying aged c65. I thought I might as well include Pinudjem I and Osorkon B here. So:

- Pinudjem I, dies aged c77
- Menkheperre, dies aged c65
- Pinudjem III, dies aged c59
- Psusennes II, dies aged c79
- (Maatkare dies before becoming queen)
- Shoshenq II/C, dies aged c67
- Osorkon I, dies aged c61
- Takelot I/II, dies aged c68
- Osorkon B, dies aged +90
Average age of death: minimum 70,7 years old = 71. Maatkare is not included because we can't know for sure when she died, but given that she is never mentioned by her son or anyone else as King's Wife, she must have bear Shoshenq C and died before Osorkon the Elder came to the throne (945 in your model, although Shoshenq C is born in c940).

Pinudjem I should also be included in the generational count I tried to figure out for your model from Osorkon II below. Numbers above Osorkon I are yours, not mine (with the exception of Maatkare, which can be arguably presumed to be midpoint between Psusennes II and Shoshenq C). So:

- Pinudjem I, born c1089
- Menkheperre, born c1069
- Pinudjem III, born c1044
- Psusennes II, born c976
- Maatkare B, born c958
- Shoshenq II/C, born c940
- Osorkon I, born c920
- Takelot I/II, born c900
- Osorkon II, born c868
- Shoshenq D, born c852
- Takelot B, born c834
- Pediese, born c816
- Peftjauawybast, born c798
13 generations, 291 years from birth of Pinudjem I to the birth of Peftjauawybast. Average age per generation: 24,2 years = 24 years per generation. This is sort of the maternal lineage, as a model like yours connects Shoshenq II and his descendants to the Tanite kings and Theban pontiffs via maternal lineage. I'm interest in knowing your numbers for these individuals.

Honest regards,
