The forgotten pyramids of Sudan - Al Jazeera English  Around 1000 BCE, after the fall of the 24th Egyptian dynasty, the Nubian Kingdom of Kush arose as the leading power in the middle Nile region. The Kushite kings took over and ruled much of Egypt from 712 to 657 BCE. In 300 BCE, when the capital and royal burial ground of the kingdom moved to the Meroe region, the pharaonic tradition of building pyramids to encapsulate the tombs of rulers continued here.

Few visitors have been making the trek out to the country's northeast to see the secluded Nubian Meroe pyramids.

Queen Amanishakheto of Nubia, was a Kandake (Kandake or Kentake, also Candace, was the title for queens and queen mothers of the ancient African Kingdom of Kush, known as Nubia and Ethiopia) She seems to have reigned from 10 BC to 1 AD, although most dates of Nubian history before the Middle Ages are very uncertain. In Meroitic hieroglyphs her name is written as Amanikasheto.
