Application of Pharaoh Berenice VI of Egypt and Kush

Post by Berenice » Fri Aug 30, 2019 1:51 pm

The Anaktoria of Egypt and Kush should roughly correspond to the territories controlled by Ptolemaic Egypt under Cleopatra VII, as well as those controlled by the kingdoms of Kush and Aksum around the same period, extending south to the Horn of Africa along the Red Sea coast.

Name of Chiefdom/Province: Anactoria of Egypt and Kush (Ἀνακτορία τῆς Αἰγύπτου καί τῆς Κώσσου / Anactorium Aegypti Cossique)

Name of Chieftain/Governor: Berenice VI Thea Philometor Caesar Argead

Titles: Anassa (Pharaoh) of Egypt, Qor and Candace of Kush, She of the Sedge and Bee, Lady of the Two Lands, Daughter of Re

Background Information: During the Battle of Actium, Mark Antony engaged the fleet of Agrippa despite his ships being badly undermanned and was killed. Cleopatra VII, however, managed to break through to the open sea with most of her warships and troops. She was subsequently able to repel the first onslaught of Octavian's forces. But with Rome now hostile to her, she turned her gaze to the south looking for new allies; this ally was Candace Amanirenas of Kush. The alliance was sealed by engagement of Cleopatra's eldest son and heir Ptolemy XV Caesar to Amanirenas' eldest daughter Amanischeto - also the heir apparent to the throne of Kush. With Kishite aid, the Egyptian kingdom was able to resist subsequent attempts by Octavian invade it and a truce was eventually concluded. After their deaths, Cleopatra's and Amanirenas were succeeded by their children and thus Egypt and Kush were reunited under the reign of Ptolemy XV and Amanischeto as co-regents of both lands, who conquered the Kingdom of Axome [Aksum] and extended their domain to the entire western coast of the Erythraean [Red] Sea. The new monarchs adopted the styles Anax/Anassa in Hellenic usage (historically equivalent to High King/Queen). With convenient naval base in Adulis, the nation has become a major maritime power in the Indian Ocean and gained control over much of spice and ivory trade. The system of canals connecting Mare Nostrum with the Erythraean Sea (originally built by Ptolemy II Philadelphus, but silted up since) was also restored during this period. Ptolemy XV and Amanischeto were succeeded by their eldest daughter Cleopatra VIII, who is a direct ancestor of the current pharaoh.
