"Vale of Kings" VK III - Seshem IV

March 17, 1978 Original Concept

Seshem IV enjoyed a 52 year reign, the second longest according to the "Book of Kings". His accomplishments include building two pyramids (Lux the Mad consulted him for her own structure), and multiple temples - the most famous being the Floating Temple of Memphis. He was well known for honoring Ptah, Opener of the Way, and kept many Apis Bulls as guardians for local shrines.

In death, like in life, his tomb shows delicate work and multiple passages covered with symbols of his life and greatest loves - the people of his kingdom.
