Thutmose III (The Early Years)
Thutmose III spent his youth in training: training for rituals and prayers, for governance and learning, and for military arts and warfare. He learned the arts of politics and government in the harem, which we explore for the first time.
He also spent a great deal of time with the army, which has changed a lot since the days of the Middle Kingdom or War of Independence.
