Meaning of the baby name UAH-PRAHET.


UAH-PRAHET.  Or Uahprahet.  "The Sun enlarges his Heart."  A king of Egypt of the XXVIth dynasty, and the son of Psametik II.  He was successful in some wars which he undertook against the people of Cyprus and Phoenicia, and induced the Jews under King Zedekiah to revolt from the Assyrians.  The result was unfortunate for both parties, as the Babylonians destroyed Jerusalem, and then invaded the Eastern provinces of the Delta.  At that time Uahprahet was attacking the Greek settlement of Cyrene with the help of Adiacras, king of the Libyans.  His army being defeated, he returned to Egypt only to find his Greek subjects discontented at the threatened approach of the Babylonians.  To appease them he sent a favourite officer named Aahmes or Amasis, but him they immediately proclaimed king in despite of his master, who raised an army against Amasis, who defeated him in a battle near Momemphis, but placed him in honourable confinement in the royal palace at Sais.  Before long, however, the Egyptians and Greeks clamouring for his death, he was strangled in prison after a reign of nineteen years, and was succeeded by the usurper Amasis.  Uah-prahet was the Hophra of the Hebrew writers.  Uah-prahet.  A prince of the blood royal of Panki, an obscure king of the XXIVth dynasty. (An Archaic Dictionary, Cooper, 1876).  Also see Uah-abra, and Apries.
