Megiddo was the first recorded battle in human history. It is also the origin of the ancient word Armageddon. And even though records of the battle come only from Egyptian accounts, they still allow historians to see the breadth and scope of military operations in the 15th century B.C., when Egypt had become a dominant power in the Middle East. It was in this period, however, when Egypt’s empire was in jeopardy. During a critical transfer of power, Egypt’s tributary states in the Levant saw an opportunity to reassert their independence. But a new young pharaoh, Thutmose III, marched north to meet them in battle. Megiddo established Thutmose III as one of the most powerful and significant rulers in Egyptian history, while also reestablishing the Egyptian Empire and setting its course for the next 450 years.
