Hello Marianne,
Do you know of any king besides Ahmose and Amenhotep I during the period in question who was succeeded by a son-in-law? I suppose Thutmosis II was succeeded by a son-in-law since his son married his daughter.
What king's name would you morph into Chenephres?
What was the source for the later church historians that led them to think the Exodus occurred during the time of the 18th dynasty? Was it Josephus? The comments concerning Moses in the accounts of Africanus and Eusebius are their own, not Manetho's.
The chronology of Manetho would place the advent of the Hyksos at about the same time the Hebrew refugees finally enterred Canaan, that is about 1406 B.C.
So, Ms. Er Luban, before you place too much reliance on church historians, consider their motives and sources.
More later,
Cullom

          Oops--pressed some wrong button. Hatshepsut, her Speos Artemidos inscription, says the "Aamu" were ensconced at Avaris "with vagabonds among them". Now, the Aamu were realistically depicted in a tomb ... more

            Hello Marianne, I should have said that Thutmosis I was succeeded by a "son-in-law" since his son Thutmosis II married his daughter Hatshepsut. The story of Abisha is remarkably similar to the story... more

              Cullom: In your earlier post you related that Egypt was ruled by Palmanothes AND Chenephres so Chenephres must have been more than an important official. ML: Why? He can have been a local lord.... more
