Seti I with Thoth Seti I (aka Sethos I) was the second pharaoh of the 19th Dynasty. He ruled 1291 - 1278 BCE. He was the son of Ramses I and Sitre. His wife was Tuya and he had 4 children. His oldest son died young and his name is unknown. He had two daughters, Tia and Henutmire. His other son was the legendary Ramses II. Seti I attempted to popularize the cult of Set. The name Seti means He of the god Set. He tried to 'repair the religious damage' made by Ahkenaten in the previous dynasty by bringing back the older gods. As a result, Seti I erected a temple to Osiris and a Hypostyle Hall in the Temple of Amen at Karnak. Seti I was buried in Tomb KV 17, Valley of the Kings, Thebes. ©2004 Fruit of the Nile.
