Horemheb began his career as a soldier in the Egyptian army during the fourteenth century BC, before becoming Regent for the young King Tutankhamun and, ultimately, king himself. This lecture discusses the tombs he had built during these two stages of his career, one at Saqqara and one in the Valley of the Kings.
