Taharqa

Taharqa is mentioned in the bible, and history shows that the Assyrian army retreated because of the army he led, which in turn saved Jerusalem from destruction. He is regarded as a ruler who reunited the land after the defeat against the Assyrians. Taharqa was responsible for helping the revival of Egyptian culture, religion, and arts, which were returned to their greatness.
