Thutmose III followed Hatshepsuts. When he
became ruler he had Hatshepsuts's name erased from all public inscriptions and replaced
them with his own name, or that of his ancestors. Thutmose III spent his time fighting
Syria and Palestine. He also fought the Hurrians in Mitanni. Thutmose's reign was one of
intense battle with one military campaign followed by another.
