The Mighty African empire that conquered Egypt and invaded in the Middle East but was eventually forgotten by history

in #history4 years ago (edited)

When we think of ancient and powerful African civilizations, of course what comes to mind is the Egyptian civilization. We learn in school about its greatness, its riches and its importance, just as it has in its archaeological heritages, which are true wonders of the history of humanity. There is, however, another ancient African kingdom, which not only left us with treasures of archeology - including more than 300 pyramids that remains intact which were built 3,000 years ago - as it came to conquer and rule Egypt itself for a few decades, but history had simply forgotten about it.

It was the kingdom of Kush (or Cuxe), constructed of farmers, artisans and merchants who have come to rival wealth with the pharaohs. The Cossites possessed gold mines and fertile lands. Amazingly for that time, women could rule as queens in their own right. One of them even defeated the Romans!

The kingdom was located on the edge of the Nile, where today is Sudan - and this privileged position on the trade route of the time helped build the Czar's wealth and power. The conquest of Egypt occurred in the eighth century BC, where the Czarites reigned as pharaohs for almost a century.

The decline of the kingdom is quite mysterious, and would have taken place between the second and third centuries, due to an Ethiopian invasion of Axum's kingdom, but such a conclusion is highly controversial among historians. Its language and writing are almost gone, and with that, much of his history.

Perhaps in the future, it will be possible to learn something about the history of this great ancient African civilization. But so far there are none or almost none.

However, the pyramids and monuments standing in the desert still proudly represents how great this civilization was. It’s a shame that we know so little about them. Almost 300 pyramids remain almost intact from 3000 bc!

Take a look at some more photos to perceive the feeling of how great this civilization was:

Great! Upvoted and resteemed!

thank u very much :)

Considering that Africa and Middle East are pretty much neighbors, I don’t think that migration for that tribe to Middle East was a issue. However, they must’ve had some conflicts with previous tribes present in that area, when they first migrated.

Their architecture is closely Egyptian, which suggests that they probably had been influenced while staying there.

that could be right - egypt had a great influence over its neighbors.
