Piankh

High Priest

 

 The short-lived successor of Herihor (possibly Herihor's son-in-law), there are records of Piankh fighting some rebels late in the reign of Ramesses XI, but it is thought that Piankh and Ramesses XI died at the same time.

There is only one monument known of Piankh, a stela (from Abydos) which records him as 'the Royal Fanbearer, Scribe, General, Prince of Kush, Chief of the Southern Lands, High Priest of Amun, Chief of the Granaries and Chief of the Archers'.
