19th Dynasty:

Seti I, the first of the line of warriors who turned all efforts toward recovering Egypt's prestige aboard. As soon as Seti I came to the throne, he faced serious danger from a coalition of Syrian city-states encouraged, and even sustained, by the Hittites. He was able to defeat the coalition and enable Egypt to regain control over Palestine. After repulsing a Libyan attack, we find Seti once again in northern Syria where Egyptian troops came into contact with the Hittites for the first time. He captured Kadesh but though the Hittites were forced to retire temporarily they retained their influence in northern Syria. The war was continued by his son Ramses II.
