Abstract

The Chronicle of Prince Osorkon, inscribed at the Bubastite Portal at Karnak, is an important historical document, containing the narrative of Osorkon's vicissitudes and actions during the period from Takeloth II's 11th regnal year until Shoshenq III's 29th regnal year. From the combination of the narrative of the Chronicle with other sources it may be deduced that year 6 of Shoshenq III must coincide with or precede the “rebellion” of year 11 of Takeloth II. The political relations during the period at issue reflect the inherently tribal nature of Libyan rule, and several events referred to in the Chronicle reveal features that are characteristic of the Libyan social hierarchy based on a patrilineal segmentary lineage system, such as rapid changes in group composition and fluctuating bonds among collateral lines.

Abstract

A recent proposition by R. Morkot and P. James to shorten the period from the start of the Twenty-second until the end of the Twenty-fifth Dynasty prompted the author to investigate what unquestionable chronological data we have, what are the theories and suppositions founded on those data and how these theories and suppositions have been substantiated. In the author’s view it may be concluded from this investigation not only that the arguments advanced by Morkot and James are inappropriate to substantiate the chronological reduction advocated by them, but also that on historical considerations their theory is untenable.
