Events and trends[edit]

  • Battle of Megiddo (15th century BC) between Thutmose III and a coalition under the King of Kadesh. It is the first battle to have been recorded in what is accepted as relatively reliable detail. The battle took place in year 23 I Shemsu day 20 (or possibly day 21). The exact year depends on the year Thutmose ascended to the throne of Egypt and among scholars the estimates range from 1479 to 1504 BC. Using the 1479 BC estimate the battle could have taken place in May 1457 BC.[1]
