Names of the 22 royals Mummies

Seti I

One of the most beautiful and best-preserved of the royal sepulchers is the tomb of Seti I in the Valley of the Kings, with wall decorations in vivid colors.
Son of Ramses I, the founder of Dynasty 19, New Kingdom, Seti I lead a battle against the Hittites. His military activities and victories were carefully recorded at Karnak, in the temple of Amun.
His mummy was discovered in 1898 in the Tomb of Amenhotep II (KV 35) in Deir El Bahari.

Ramses II

He signed the first known peace treaty in history with the Hittites and was remembered as a great warrior, King Ramses II is arguably the most famous of the New Kingdom pharaohs. He recorded his Battle of Kadesh, which he fought against the Hittites, in multiple places.
This pharaoh built temples almost everywhere in Egypt. The most famous of which are Abu Simbel and the Ramesseum (dedicated to his mortuary cult). His Great Royal Wife was Nefertari, for whom he built a temple near his own in Abu Simbel.
Ramses II succeeded his father Seti I and enjoyed a long reign. Ruling for 67 years, he left a well-recorded legacy. His mummy was discovered in the Deir el-Bahari Cache (TT 320), west of Luxor in 1881.

Ramses III

Considered the last of the great “warrior pharaohs” of the New Kingdom, Ramses III fought many notable battles and is remembered as skilled in the art of warfare.
‏Despite his great victories and accomplishments, he fell victim to a plot devised by a minor wife, Tiye, to put her son Pentawer on the throne. Several papyri tell of this “harem conspiracy” to kill the king, which involved various officers, members of the royal harem, and high court officials. CT scans carried out by the Egyptian Mummy Project showed clearly that the king’s throat had been cut from behind. Perhaps to make sure that the king would be healed and complete in the afterlife, an eye of Horus amulet was placed on the right lower rim of the wound.
