MOON OF ISRAEL
A Tale of the Exodus
by H. Rider Haggard
This book suggests that the real Pharaoh of the Exodus was not
Meneptah or Merenptah, son of Rameses the Great, but the mysterious
usurper, Amenmeses, who for a year or two occupied the throne between
the death of Meneptah and the accession of his son the heir-apparent,
the gentle-natured Seti II.
Of the fate of Amenmeses history says nothing; he may well have
perished in the Red Sea or rather the Sea of Reeds, for, unlike those
of Meneptah and the second Seti, his body has not been found.
Students of Egyptology will be familiar with the writings of the
scribe and novelist Anana, or Ana as he is here called.
