Whilst relaxing in one of his harem rooms in Thebes, Ramesses III was murdered. The conspiracy surrounding his assassination, and the trial and conviction of those said to be involved are recorded in court transcripts and legal records. Redford explores these heavily biased sources with new translations of many ancient papyri, and presents a new interpretation of the murder plot and the contested succession among Ramesses II's sons.
