Bakare Tanutamun (transliteration: tꜢ-n-wt-ỉmn), or Tantamani, is an ancient Egyptian Pharaoh of the Twenty-fifth Dynasty during the Third Intermediate Period. He was of Nubian origin and ruled from Napata over Kush and most of Egypt. Tanutamun lost control of Egypt to the Assyrians, who sacked Thebes. Subsequently, Psamtik I – a former vassal of Assyria who founded the Twenty-sixth Dynasty – unified all of Egypt while fending off attempts by Tanutamun to reclaim Egyptian territories.
