Thutmose may have been a vizier of the south around year 45 [1] of Ramesses II's reign. Thutmose is mentioned in vizier Prehotep II's tomb in Sedment, which may indicate that their tenures as viziers may have overlapped or followed one another. Tuthmose is also known from an ostracon found in the Valley of the Kings in Thebes. [2]

Thutmose III, sometimes called Thutmose the Great, was the sixth pharaoh of the Eighteenth Dynasty. Officially, Thutmose III ruled Egypt for almost 54 years and his reign is usually dated from 28 April 1479 BC to 11 March 1425 BC, from the age of two and until his death at age fifty-six; however, during the first 22 years of his reign, he was coregent with his stepmother and aunt, Hatshepsut, who was named the pharaoh. While he was shown first on surviving monuments, both were assigned the usual royal names and insignia and neither is given any obvious seniority over the other. Thutmose served as the head of Hatshepsut's armies. During the final two years of his reign, he appointed his son and successor, Amenhotep II, as his junior co-regent. His firstborn son and heir to the throne, Amenemhat, predeceased Thutmose III. He would become one of the most powerful pharaohs of the 18th dynasty.

Thutmose is an Anglicization of the Ancient Egyptian personal name dhwty-ms, usually translated as "Born of the god Thoth".
