    Which one, bud? There were four, and sort of a fifth if you consider the son of Ramessesnakht, the high priest of Amun at Thebes, who held quite a lot of autonomy in Upper Egypt as the pharaonic Ramessides in the north were on the wane.

    Thanks for the update:

    In all likelihood Amenhotep III was born in the harem palace built by his great-grandfather Thutmose III at Mi-wer (modern Medinet Ghurob) in the Faiyum Oasis near Shedet-Krokodilopolis.

    It was around 1411 BC during the 15th reign year of his grandfather Amenhotep II.
