I am going to revive an old thread and use a different title. I'll quote Jaime:

Hi Marianne

Thank you very much for your comments.

I supposed in the past Ahmose-Sipair was Thutmose I's father, on the premise that he is considered a prince much mentioned during the 18th Dynasty even though he never became king. But if the mummy labeled Thutmose I and now seen as a young prince is actually Amenhotep I's son, then this theory is jeopardized. [end of quote]

I have written an informal paper on this recently and even changed the Wikipedia entry on Ahmose-Sipair. If someone has better information, it can be changed again easily enough. Anyway, I think our member, the late Chris Bennett, was mistaken in that Thutmose I was the son of this young man because the chronology doesn't support it. Thutmose I was too old when he became king. His children, the half-siblings Hatshepsut and the future Thutmose II had both to be around fifteen years old at his accession if T II could be around 30 when he died. Because, according to my calculations, T I had to reign for 13 years and II for three in order for III to arise as king in 1504 BCE. So an interim of 16 year between T I and T III mandates teenage children for T I when he came to the throne. I hope I have satisfactorily explained about Ahmose-Sipair here:
