    • Synopsis
    • The year is 1560 BC, and the ancient land of the pyramid builders is now a fragmented nation. Torn apart by decades of anarchy, civil war and military occupation, Egypt has fallen into the hands of the invading Hyksos, a fearsome warrior nation. Only the great kingdom of Thebes, the glorious sacred capital, still stands. A city isolated but defiant.

      The death of the Theban leader forces two new rulers to the throne: our heroes King Seqenre and Queen Ahhotep. They’ll begin the fight back against the Hyksos. With the support of their powerful mother Teti, the great matriarch of Thebes, these great warriors will stand determined to keep their independence, retake their country and recover the prestige of the Pharaohs of old.

      But when the king of the Hyksos finds out about his new Theban rivals, he sends a politically charged letter to Thebes insulting its ruling family and demanding their shameful surrender, thus forcing the small kingdom on the Nile to rise up and, against all the odds, recover their freedom and reconquer their ancestral land.

      Shedding their very blood, they’ll forge a dynasty of warring heroes that will come to create the greatest empire of the ancient world. A dynasty of both male and female Pharaohs that will culminate in the Golden age of Tutankhamen himself.
