A short and all to brief summary of the middle kingdom. The middle kingdom was short but oh so sweet. So many interesting characters and intrigues! Amenemhet is my Favorite middle kingdom Pharaoh, mainly because of the cynical advice he gave to his son.....What can I say, I am a cynic! Hope your new years all started out well!!!

Was Alexander as Great as they Say? (Controversial)

Posted October 20th, 2017 at 06:24 AM by NBSHistory
