AMENEMHA.  Amenemha I., the first king of the XIIth Egyptian dynasty.  He ascended the throne in troublous times, conquered the Magui, and built a great palace at Heliopolis.  He is supposed to have been attacked by conspirators in his ninth year, after which he reigned jointly with his son and successor, Osirtasen I., for seven years longer.  He is the first Egyptian king who is recorded to have hunted the lion and the crocodile.  The kings of this line are called Amenmai Thori by Sharpe in his History of Egypt.  Amenemha II., a king of the XIIth dynasty.  He succeeded Osirtasen I., and continued the Southern wars of Egypt.  He reigned at least forty-four years, but little is recorded of the events of his reign.  Amenemha III., the greatest king of the XIIth dynasty.  He conceived the grand project of saving Egypt from the dangers alike of draught and inundation, by converting the low land, now called the Fayoum, into a vast reservoir of fresh water.  The lake thus constructed was known to the Greeks as the lake Moeris.  It had an area of 10,000,000 square metres, and a portion of it still forms the swamp called Birket Kerun.  He also built two pyramids beside it, for the burial of himself and his wife; and is said further by the Greeks to have constructed a famous labyrinth, of which the remains existed in the time of Diodorus Siculus.  Amenemha IV., an Egyptian king of the XIIth dynasty; the successor of Amenemha III.  He continued the works at the mines of the Wady Magara, near Sinai, and he and his sister were buried in the pyramids of Amenemha III.  Amenemha, a royal scribe, whose monument is in the Leyden Museum.  Period uncertain, probably of the XVIIIth dynasty.  Amenemha, the brother of Senbu a priest of Osiris.  His period is uncertain. (An Archaic Dictionary, Cooper, 1876).
