Amenhotep I above all encouraged foreign exploration and trade to regions far beyond the borders of Egypt. This study of Amenhotep I reveals a fascinating and complex individual, responsible in more than one way for the religious and political upheavals that occurred during the reign of his son, Akhenaten.
