Definition: Name of four New Kingdom pharaohs. Thutmose I was the general who drove the Hyksos out of Egypt. He married the king's sister and was named king in 1493 B.C. when King Amenhotep I died childless. His son followed him to the throne in 1481. Thutmose II's wife was Hatshepsut, who took the throne for herself when her son, Thutmose III, was very young. He, in turn, gained the throne in 1573. Thutmose IV was the son of Amenhotep II and ruled from 1392 to 1382.
