Prenomen: Nimaatre (or Maare?)
Nomen: Kashta
(760-747 BC?)

Kashta succeeded Alara, who may have been his brother. Kashta was the first ruler of Kush who tried to conquer Egypt. Kashta uses his influence to have his daughter Amenirdis I adopted by Shepenwepet I, daughter of the Lybian king Osorkon III who served as God’s Wife of Amun.  Kashta’s power didn’t stretch out to the Delta and large parts of Lower Egypt. In the north small princedoms stayed independent from Kushite rule. The Rulers in the north include Tefnakht, Osorkon IV, Iuput II, and Sheshonq V
