Taharqa (690-664 B.C.)
One of the Nubian rulers during the 25th dynasty in Egypt. Taharqa, a son and third successor of King Piye, was the greatest of the Nubian pharaohs. His empire stretched from Palestine to the confluence of the Blue and White Niles. About 684 B.C. the Nile rose in a great flood. Taharqa’s kingdom brought an exceptional harvest that year, and the kingdom grew rich. He ordered many construction projects, and built or renewed many fine temples in Egypt. The early years of his reign were very prosperous.
At the age of twenty Taharqa was a great warrior, fought and won many battles against the Assyrians, but soon the Assyrians overwhelmed the Egyptian and Kushite forces in 667 B.C., at which time Nubia lost control of Egypt.
Taharqa is mentioned in the Bible Isaiah 37:9, 2 & Kings 19:9).
Taharqa died in 664BCE. He was buried in Nure; His pyramid was over 150 feet high. It is the largest pyramid that has been excavated in Sudan to date.

Fit very well for me, even though I am on the heavier side, and it's not easy to find a good fitting shirt!
