The desert necropolis on the west bank of the Nile, opposite Thebes.
Amenhotep I is thought to have devised the idea behind the Valley of the Kings, but it was Tuthmosis I who was the first King to be buried in the Valley.

There are two main branches to the Valley of the Kings - east and west, the greatest number of tombs are found in the eastern side - in the western side lie the tombs of Amenhotep III and Ay.
